I'm starting to work with fillable forms in CC InDesign 2020. All my text boxes were light blue, then all the blue color disappeared but the boxes are still there. When I click on the boxes now they are there but shown just by a blue dotted box when you click on them. How can I change the colors of the boxes back to blue as when I started.
Can you confirm the exact version of your software and operating system?
Also can you confirm if you change your display mode?
With the selection tool activated (black arrow), click in an empty area to make sure nothing is selected and press W on your keyboard.
I thought the blue boxes showed when previewing
I'm on a Windows 10 x64 Build 1909 computer, (state computer run by our IT Department), and am on InDesign 2021.
I'm always in View, Display, High Performance Display. I've toggled to the other displays but it shows no difference. I like to see the blue colored boxes so I can see at a glance where they are, but now they are only visible in InDesign if I click on a box then it shows the dashed blue line around (stroke).

In InDesign, form fields have a dashed blue border.
In Acrobat, form fields have a solid blue fill.
Your InDesign screen capture looks as it should.
OK Bevi, I could have sworn earlier today they were solid light blue. Thank you for your reply! Everything is well then!
