I cant set the fill color on a field.
I have fields with a fill color but even they show the setting is on no fill
I closed and reopened, same issue
In 16 you are expected to use the Layout Object Explorer to select objects you wish to format. Perhaps you have the field set to be a button; FM 16 sees this as a group and won't let you format the button group (or other "artificial" groups I've noticed in 16) directly. Using the (extremely slow) Layout Object Explorer, you can select the specific object(s) within the group you'd like to format.
Yes, it showed as a grouped item
