    I created a sample form for you using different types of fields, so its easy for you to understand


    Sample Form Layout

    To apply the condition you need to design the condition in following manner

    I created 2 separate conditions for color field, if color Red is selected

    Change the value of Shape field

    Change the value of Size Field

    @irfanmoosani is right. This is the way that you can set up your conditions for the example you specified. You can also define your drop-down field's calculation values such as it it pushes its value to another field. For instance for the color options you can define feet values:

    on the Surveying setting which will handle the calculation values for the selected color:

    You can do this with one condition:

    The form will work like this:

    You can hide the inserted field on your form and use for your other needs:

    Here is the form that I created :


    You can clone this form. Here is a guide about it:


    Please also clone and investigate the form that @irfanmoosani shared.

    Is there an "else" anywhere? If this action is done, this answer will appear, else the other answer. I want only to limit one answer that is only associated to another answer so they are linked.

    There is't "else". However you can set your condition that "else" will be resolved if some condition is not met. For example, if you set condition to show some field based on selected option, you do not need to set opposite condition to hide same field if other option is selected.

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/63428909000957 

    I have set only one condition to show email field if selected option in radio button field is equal to Yes.

    If No is selected email field will remain hidden and there is no need to set condition for that option as well.
