    Hello Richard,

    We don't currently have this feature. What you can do is hide/show the field based upon previous values:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/196-How-to-Hide-or-Show-Multiple-Fields-at-Once-Based-On-a-Single-Conditional-Entry

    - I set a simple form up with these fields:

    Then I added a condition such that if the conditional value field has a specific text, in this case "hide" then the text field will be hidden, and the hidden text field will be displayed.

    Then I set the Hidden field, to Read Only:

    Let us know if that will resolve your issue. Thanks!
