    I have two items that I have identified in a conditional to be shown. Subsequently in the sequence of user interaction, I have a conditional that if true hides the two previously shown items. 

    Testing the form the two items are not hidden when the second conditional specifies they should be. This happens whether or not the first conditional is listed above or below the second conditional in the settings list.

    The only way to hide a field that was shown based on a previous condition is by creating a nested condition. Instead of having two conditions:

    1) If field A is equal to "something specific", then show field X

    2) If field B is equal to "Something specific", then hide field X

    You can create one nested condition:

    If field A is equal to "something specific"

    And if field B is equal to "something specific"

    Then show field X

    In that way, both statements need to be true for the X field to be shown.

    I assume that this is the form in question: https://www.jotform.com/91158731469162

    Could you indicate what are the fields and conditions in question? We will be glad to show you how to create nested conditions.

    Did a workaround on my form to eliminate the issue. Good to know this is an alternative. I understand how to do it. Didn't think to use it though.
