I created a fillable form and sometimes I am required to print it out and fax it.  When I print it out, the gray boxes print out, they aren't clear like someone mentioned in another forum thread.  I have gone under Preferences>Forms and the box show border hover is unchecked and I changed the fields Highlight color to white but it's still showing this gray.  How do I get these gone? I'm sure it's something simple but I'm using Adobe Acrobat Pro.  Thank youScreenshot 2021-02-11 103658.pngScreenshot 2021-02-11 103713.png

Hi,

 

Have you check the actual settings of the field?  Search tools for Edit Form, then select the field.

I have the form open but I can't figure out where to go to edit the field.  I can't right click or anything and there isn't any option on the left hand side to click that I can edit the form box.  That's where I'm stuck at. Screenshot 2021-02-11 110129.png

Hi,

 

You need to search for "Edit Prepare Form" at that point you should see the fields as a black box with a name in the middle.

 

should look something like this [To be clear there are a number of edit options]

Ok I added that option so now I can edit it.  I just have to figure out how to get rid of the gray box.
