How to remove blue highlight box from Adobe

I created a fillable worksheet in Adobe InDesign and exported as an Interactive PDF. It has radio buttons but in Acrobat the buttons have a blue highlight box over them. It's completely ruining the design and I want them removed. Not just for me, but for anyone I am sending this to. Is there a solution either from InDesign or Acrobat to hide these highlight boxes?

Hi @Laura250897853svv:

 

I don't like the highlighting either and you can disable it as shown in the screen shot below, but as per Bob, it's a system preference and not built into the PDF. Each user will have to turn it off on their own systems.

You can set the preference in Acrobat by including a script in the PDF. I wrote about that in my blog, however note that the blog is in Dutch:

in the future, to find the best place to post your message, use the list here, https://community.adobe.com/

p.s. i don't think the adobe website, and forums in particular, are easy to navigate, so don't spend a lot of time searching that forum list. do your best and we'll move the post (like this one has already been moved) if it helps you get responses.

No ja osobne by som to neriešil tak ako vi. Ale čo sa tika už spomínanej
aplikácie ADOBE. Tak mám aj ja s ňou problém myslím tím že aj ja to
zvýraznenie mám také ako bi som nechcel mať.
Tiež to mám také tmavšie.
Moja rada by bola taká jednoduchá skús tú aplikaciu odinštalovať potom
vymazať vyrovnávaciu pamäť. Prv než nainštalujte aplikáciu ADOBE musíte
najprv reinštalovat váš mobilný telefón. Po ukončení reinštaláci môžte na
novo stiahnuť z obchodu GOOGLE PLAY tu spomínanú aplikáciu ADOBE ale musíte
sa najprv presvedčiť či má najnovšiu verziu aktualizácie.

This is something you cannot control. It's a function of the PDF reader.
