    I created a form with a Single Choice element with 6 choices. There are 2 other Multi-Choice elements on the form. With 1 of the first elements choices, the 2 MC elements are both hidden. With 1 of the first elements choices, 1 MC element is hidden and 1 is shown. With the other 4 choices, the other MC element is hidden and 1 is shown. The problem is that one of the Multi-Choice elements is not expanding fully when it is supposed to show so you can't see the options and use the form element. I see an error warning come up when navigating between Other and State but I can't figure out what the problem is.

    This is all I can see of the Select State(s) multi-select element. If I re-save other conditional statements, it will switch and this one will appear correctly but the other multi-select element will look this way instead. One or the other is always like this.

    Hi Lisa,

    Thank you for your patience and understanding while I look into this. I cloned your form to test it and I easily replicated the issue. There is an easy fix for this, we just need to adjust the conditions that you have set up. Please always prioritize Show instead of Hide. All fields set to show with a condition are automatically hidden in the form until logic is met. Please check the screenshots below and apply these conditions to your form.

    Check out the cloned form I made here. You can clone that form. Just follow this guide.
