Form Field Highlights
I'd like to see a small change to the Form fields. Simply add a fill color for the active field. Similar to the way that it works when creating actions. As shown in this image.

Agreed, Tony. The blue outline cursor is a little subtle, in some cases.

Agreed. This used to be better in the old UI, but in the new UI this has become difficult to see. It is particularly relevant as a lot of my users tab through the fields with the keyboard as this is faster than using the mouse, but since the new UI they are no longer sure which field they are in.

Unfortunately styling control's background won't work in all cases - text boxes are indeed universally styleable, but with other control types we are running into a problems. IE's prior to v9 do not support dropdown lists styling, checkboxes and radio buttons are hardly styleable at all.

For anyone doing data entry, this sort of thing slows you down, and ends up adding head count (just from experience with customer service systems). CS people hate when they cannot see where the tab is.

For that matter, it's probably also a bit of a challenge for CS people when tabbing to multi-text fields, because the cursor goes to the buttons one by one. It would be great if that did not happen...

Focused cell's label is now highlighted with a color of the data cell - the scheme we had in old UI.
