    Make sure you add the dropdown menu with all the options, as well as the fields to be shown or hidden.

    Then, follow these steps:

    Go to “Setup & Embed” and click "Conditions".

    accessing conditions


    Select SHOW/HIDE option

    conditions wizard


    At  IF declaration, you must choose your dropdown menu :

    On the THEN declaration, choose the field you wish to show only if that conditon is met (otherwise it will be hidden)


    See this example:


    I hope this helps, otherwise let us know.
