I would like to generate a readonly version of a filled in form.
If I added a conditional logic piece such that if a field is altered to a certain value, then HIDE THE SUBMIT button.
Would this make the form effectively viewable (although people could play with the form) but not updatable?
Also, could I self-reference the field I would fill in to generate this condition? That is, if field A is XXXX, then hide field A. Would this make the field disappear real time?
I am looking for some easy type of workaround to provide a read only view of my form. Because the pdf versions change formatting they are not the best view for my users.
A mode feature that would allow a inoperable (filled out version) of a form would be VERY helpful.

If you will hide the submit button if a field is altered, it would be better if you just make the field ready only, simply follow this steps:
1) Right click on the field
2) Click on the gear icon
3) Click on Show Properties
4) Set the Ready-only property to "Yes"
On regards of hiding a field, that is possible it will hide in real time if you set a condition like this:
