Captivate Text Entry Box feedback with highlight box in state view interfering with TEB focus

I have identified an issue in my Adobe Captivate 2019 design where a Text Entry Box is used to test the user's response to the task of filling in data in a form. Incorrect input triggers a failure feedback shape to the side of the TEB, and the feedback shape has a highlight box surrounding the TEB which was added to the shape in state view. My intention was to draw attention to the correct area for inputing data whenever the TEB focus is lost. This appears to work in slide preview, but not in browser preview or in ScormCloud, where the highlight box seems to be on top of the HTML stack, which prevents the user from putting the focus back on the TEB to continue the exercise after the focus is lost. I'm looking for suggestions for how this design with a border around the TEB might work before I just delete the highlight box from the feedback shape state view. Lowering the stack order of the hightlight box or the feedback shape did not work. Thanks in advance!
