I am trying to make a fillable form. I seem to be running into some issues with the form boxes when I use \TextField

When I open the PDF There is a red box displayed around the area I can type in. I wish to remove these red boxes. Also when I go to print the PDF, it prints with a faint red box as well.

This is how the PFD looks like when I go to edit it. I am using the default Reader app on windows 10. But using Adobe reader shows me the same thing.

This is how it looks like when it prints.

I tried fixes like




But they do not fix the issue. Here is my code:

\usepackage{amsmath,amsthm,verbatim,amssymb,amsfonts,amscd, graphicx}


%Additional Packages
\graphicspath{ {images/} }

\newtheorem*{surfacecor}{Corollary 1}

\newcommand{\floor}[1]{\lfloor #1 \rfloor}

        \includegraphics[width=6cm, right]{ace}

%And another one
    \TextField[name=four, width=3cm, borderwidth=0]{type here:} \\

    \TextField[name=five, width=3cm, borderwidth=0]{type here:} \\

If someone can please fix this issue or have another alterntive to \TextFeild, please let me know. Thank You

You can make the bordercolor transparent. Then the border will not show up, even if its width is larger then 0:


    \TextField[bordercolor=, name=four, width=3cm, borderwidth=1]{type here:} 

    \TextField[name=five, width=3cm, borderwidth=1]{type here:}
