    I have 4 hidden fields on a form that I use for some calculations. These are hidden on first use, but if I return to the form using the Edit link they are no longer hidden.

    I see here how I could make them hidden but my question is if there default condiftion is hidden why do they not remain hidden when I edit the form?

    Kindly try viewing the edit link as the user and not the form owner. By default, form owners are able to view hidden fields in the edit link.

    Make sure you're not log-in to your account when you view the edit link.

    You may try viewing the edit link in the incognito or new private window.

    Please give it a try and let us know if you have further questions.
