    The Form Collapse I have added to my form does not allow me to see the rest of the form in the designer.

    Hi,

    I believe that's how the form collapse works in the form Designer, you could see the form collapse in action when in "Preview" mode. By default, the form collapse with be opened or closed depending on the "Status" you have setup.

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you.

    Actually, no, this doesn't help.  If I am to see the adjustments I need to make real-time in the designer, I need to be able to open my form.  In preview, I am simply interacting with it as it would in a normal context.

    I don't appear to be able to affect the collapse in the editor itself.  Am I missing something? How can enable my form in the designer mode so that I can see all of it. 

     

    Choosing the field doesn't work.

    Hi,

    As I have mentioned earlier, you cannot open or close the form collapse field by clicking them inside the Form Designer or the form builder itself. 

    But, what you can do is changing the "Status" setting to "Open" so that you can see the changes you are making.

    It will then show in the Form Designer that it is now open and you will see the changes, please do make sure to reload the page.

     

    Do let us know if you need more information on this.

    Thank you.
