Why do my fillable text fields no longer show as highlighted in Adobe Acrobat?

There used to be a button to press to turn this feature on. Where is it???  I'm using LiveCycle ES4.

This is something you can turn on/off in Acrobat ... View ... Tools ... Forms ... More Form Options ... Highlight Existing Fields

Or do you have some code updating the app.runtimeHighlight property.

Thanks Bruce. That is what I used to do with ES3. I’m now in ES4. I went to View/Tools and did not find More Form Options, but I did find this. It is in View/Tools/Prepare Form/Open. Thanks much.

I think I'm missing something the More Form Options option is in Acrobat not Designer ES3 or 4.

It does keep moving, with Acrobat DC (the latest version) it's under Edit ... Form Options ... Export Data,

Aha! Thanks. Why do things keep moving? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
