I am using V19 and am trying to create a new layout. I have created several fields that have a border and white background, and then selected those to copy. When I pasted those fields, the background is grey and there is no border. I was not able to change those borders and background. How can i fix this? I know I can individually create new fields, but I was hoping to be able to use a copy feature.

If you have copied and pasted a layout field it will not keep the copied field as you are unable to have duplicates, you will need to assign a new field to it.
The easiest way it can be done is by double clicking on the newly pasted field which will show you the list of fields available.
If you save a layout and a layout field has not had a field assign you will see that it has been greyed out by Act, this is to prevent you from entering data in a field that has nowhere to save it.
I have included an article which goes into more detail and may assist you through the process.
