    Hi I am having a problem with the Edit Submission feature.

     When you click on Edit Submission, the version that is then shown to the user displays all the fields which should be hidden. They are hidden on the initial version but not on the edit version. I do not want these to be seen.

    By the way, I have tried using the Get Form Page url widget to hide those fields when url contains edit. But when I do this, they are hidden on edit but not on the original version.

    Then I tried hiding when url contained 'jotform' to cover both edit and original version but when I do this, it messes up the other conditions - notably that a different version of the email should be sent to the user of the completed form depending on whether the 'Send problem email' field (hidden) at the end is triggered.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    If those fields should be hidden all the time, you can create a condition like the following:

    Whilst that solves one problem, it creates another. Some of the hidden fields need to be hidden at all times on the form, but on the auto-responder / notification emails show up. By using what you have suggested, those fields no longer appear on the emails.

    They are not displayed in the notification, because their values are being cleared due to the following setting:

    Please select "don't clear":
