    Hi,

    Actually the print button  prints everything also the hidden fields, so my advice  to you is to add a link to the PDF submission made by the user at the "Thank You page".

     Open your form builder.

    1 - Click on "Setup and Share" tab.

    2 - Click on "Thank you page" button.

    3 - Select "Thank you message"

    4 -  Add this link to the thank you page editor, be sure to use theInser/edit link to make it  a clickeable link.

    https://www.jotform.com/pdf-submission/{id}


    5 - Click finish.

    Then you can test it and you will see the option to download the submission as a pdf file so the user can print it(the hidden fields will not be there).

     

    Hope it helps,

    Let us know if you need further assitance.

    Hi,

    I am not able to completely understand your inquiry... BUT perhaps you are looking for a way to print the form's submissions? You can do it also in the My Forms Submissions page. On the selected form, you can show the options for printing using the 'gear' like icon on the right.

    I checked this form https://www.jotform.com/31772353754155  and I cannot find the HTML field you mentioned, and also the conditions on the form is just one.

    Please clarify if this is the form you are referring to. We will check further.

    Thanks.
