Morning Everyone, 

 

I have a ton of forms that are filliable, and after my computer updated, the filliable form parts are not that darkish color that normally makes them stand out. you can still fill it in, but it doesnt have that color like it always has had before. did something happen, or did a setting get messed up. my guys that work for me, are all up in arms about it but i dont know what to tell them. I attached a picture of what it looks like now and you can clearly see its just white space. again, its still filliable but what in the world happened when my computer updated. 

 

Thanks in advance.

It's a setting of the application called Fields Highlighting. You can enable it by going to Tools - Forms - More and clicking it, or via Edit (or the Acrobat app menu on a Mac) - Preferences - Forms and ticking "Show border hover color for fields" (yes, it's a terrible label...).

I found it. On my version, you click on "prepare form" on the right bar, and the. click "more tools (its a picture of a hammer" on the inner right bar option screen, and then check "highlight existing fields" .

 

you are not wrong and dont take me writing that out as even remotely indicating that. I just wanted to put that specific pathway i took in case another newb, like me, comes across this post. I was going to tools on the top ribbon and forms isnt listed so i was just following your logic and what you were calling it and found it on my version of pro dc.
