    Thank you for contacting us.

    Please try to remove any text that you have in your hidden Text Box and Submit the form. It should override the field and remove these html tags.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    Hi,

    You may have to show the autohide text first.

    Then when you edit the submission you can then add the html links in this format <a target="_blank" href="https://www.jotform.com>JotForm</a>

    Please inform us if this is not what you were looking for.

    Thanks.

    That does notwork. It is what I was trying to do.

    After putting the links in in the format you suggest, it is impossible to remove them (sometimes).

    It is OK if you want to try and remove the content in the "Register" field of the submission with Regatta Name of "Triangle Cup" for testing

    Wa this issue ever resolved?  I am having a simlar issue. 

    I have a form where someone can upload a document and I have added a condition to hide other "required" fields since they are already included in the uploaded document.  It works great on the initial submission, however when I need to edit the submission it is asking me to "fill in" those required fields.  The condition I have added does not seem to work on the editing of the submission side.

    Thank you
