Conditional Formatting only works when control has focus

I am attempting to use conditional formatting on fields in a continuous form, but the conditional formatting only works when the field has the focus. When I click on the field, it selects the correct conditional formatting, but when I change to a different field, the conditional formatting turns off. I do not have conditional formatting set to "Field has Focus". Is there a setting I'm missing? I am using MS Access 2010 & 2013. Thanks!

Check the background style of the control and make sure it is not transparent, should be "Normal"
