    I have a form with a section that needs to show on the form when the person is completing the form, but I don't want that section to print when the person clicks the Print button.  How can I code a certain section to show online but not print on paper?

    Hi @menstom,

    Unfortunately, when you click the PRINT Form button, there is no option to specify what section to print. It prints the whole. However, you can try this workaround below:

    I think that can be achieved by hiding the field when the user is about to print the form. Here's how:

    1. Add a checkbox at the bottom of the page labeled "Do you want Print the form?"

    2. Add a Show/Hide Condition that when this checkbox is clicked, it will hide the fields that you don't want to be printed.

    3. And to prevent the user from clicking the Print Form button before ticking the checkbox, add this button to the previous condition. It should only be visible when the said checkbox is field.

    I created a demo form and implemented this suggestion. Please feel free to test and see if it meets your requirement:
