Conditions making fields visible when they should not be

    I have a simple fromula in place, where my form has the current time, and below that has a calculation to show the time in Epoch. I have 12 text boxes, each to represent a month of the year. Each text box is set to hidden, and then each has a condition to be shown when the time in epoch box is greater than the equivalent of that previous month's start, and hidden again when the field is greater than that month's start.These are fairly simple conditions, which I know I have set correctly.

    I have previously run into and mentioned this issue of hide commands in the conditions overriding the hidden setting toggle in the field's properties sidebar, but I am not sure the matter was fully addressed.

    I have been checking your form and actually see some conflicts in the conditions, you have several of them showing and hiding the same fields, when one of them is met then the conflict will happen. 

    What I would recommend you is to instead set conditions based on a range, for example: 

    If field is greater than 5 and less than 20 then show text. 

    This way you will avoid the current conflict you're experiencing. 

    Thanks.

    Are you saying that this stuff needs to be in the same condition? Because I do not have any conditions telling the same field to do different things with the same value as you seem to be suggesting.
