2. How to Set the Field Shading?
From the above several examples, you will find that when you find or locate a certain field, the field is displayed in gray shading. When the field is not selected, the display effect of the field is the same as other text in the document. Therefore, the field shading allows us to identify and distinguish which content is a field.
