I created a form in InDesign with multiple text boxes to type information. Actually I used rectangle tool to make the boxes if that makes a difference. Once exported and opened in Acrobat, some of the boxes had red strokes around them. The picture on the leftis the InDesign doc and on the right the pdf. Any help will be appreciated.

As I suspected. Those are marked as required and thus highlighted in red.

OOOOh! Thank you Bob! Do I have a choice to not to highlight and just mark them as required?That outline is ugly. Probably not. But thank you again for the prompt response.

You might get a bit more guidance in the Acrobat forum. There's nothing you can do about it in InDesign.

Here is a simple JavaScript to reset "required" property:

 

app.activeDocument.textBoxes.everyItem().required=false;
app.activeDocument.checkBoxes.everyItem().required=false;
