    Yes, but only by using a custom CSS codes. However, using custom CSS codes would also make it hidden to your end. You will not see it as well to the Jotform editor.

    If you want a field to be hidden to the live view but make it visible to your end, then I would advise using our Checkbox field instead. You should be able to hide the checkbox field using the HIDE function from the field properties:

    The checkbox is then hidden to the public live view but visible to your end as the form owner.

    Let us know if you have any questions.
