    When I hide a section/page using ‘conditions’, it still shows the ‘Next’ & ‘Back’ button of that page, on a small strip that looks very awkward. Having to hit Next, then hit Next, etc. On the form I am currently working on, there are 2 pages not shown unless a question is answered a certain way, this then causes 2 pages in a row to just have the Next & Back buttons showing.
    So how can I make the Next & Back buttons Not appear when the rest of the page is Hidden? In other words, I want it to go from the Next button on a completed page to the next full or visible page.

    The condition should be like IF field is selected or Filled, show Page Break.

    ex.

    Sample screencast:

    Another option is to use the Skip to a Page condition.

    ex.

    This is the form these questions pertain to.
    1 -
    Can attachments to Auto-Responder be conditional upon a particular answer to one of the fields?

    2 –
    Can this form be Encrypted now that it is finished? I didn’t know about your encryption capabilities until recently. I would hate to have to re-create this form all over again.

    Please advise on these 2 questions.
    Thanks much.

    I have checked your form and I see a lot of Show/Hide Field conditions. If you want to prevent your form to show a blank page with only the Next/Back button showing, you can use the Skip To/Hide a Page conditional logic instead.

    Based on your requirements, you can skip to a page or hide an entire page.

    If you need assistance in setting up the condition in your form, please let us know and provide us the details. We will try our best to help you.

    I have moved your other concerns to separate threads considering both have different topics.

    I had asked this awhile back and never received an answer.
    Can I add a cover page before my current 1st page on this form? In other words, insert a page before my current page 1?
