    This is currently not possible on the form builder. However, if you use the full source code, you might be able to edit the code and disable some of the fields for edit. You can add "disabled" and/or "readonly" variables to the input fields. Or you can disable them using JavaScript.


    To get your full source code you can follow steps below:

    1. Open your form
    2. Click on "Setup & Share" tab
    3. Click on "Embed Form" on top menu
    4. Click on "Source" icon

    then you will get a window like below:


    You can get your full source code when you click the link that arrow points in this picture.
