Using Acrobat Reader, I filled in my answers to several questions. Once done, I tabbed to the net dialog box, filled in my answer to the next question. The box was white with black letters. But when I tabbed to the next question, the previous box turned blue again. On and on it went, so that every box was text in a blue-hued box. I printed out the document and everything text box printed perfectly. But then I e-mailed the completed form to myself, and the document when opened was completely blank. I have tried to re-enter text in some of the boxes, but eventually they all turn blue again. How can I remove the blue background from the text boxes?
Go to Edit (or the Reader menu if you're on a Mac) - Preferences - Forms and tick off "Show border hover color for fields".
However, this should not have any influence on the actual values in the fields, just on how they look. If the values are gone maybe you opened the file in some browser PDF plugin, instead of in Reader.
Thank you just read on how to edit, and that helped a little.
