I was trying to add some text fields over an image. However when i do so i want the backgrounds of the text fields to be transparent so i can put them over a entry line on the image. However there is always a box drawn around them. I later opened the document in a pdf editor and found that LibreOffice draws white boxes in the background behind every text form field. How does one prevent this behavior?

Hi @taylorh140,

Hmm... I believe you should be able to remove that white background.
