I actually want to hide the submit button on some of my forms to make them "Print Only" type forms. How do I do this?

Actually, the standard conditionals should let you do this - the submit button is just a section that you can apply a conditional to, like any other.
Do something like if <anything> then hide <submit section>
Or, you could add a hidden text then use that to apply the conditional on.

I'm using the IFRAME for Blogger so I was hoping there was another way. I tried using the full html code and then editing it, but for whatever reason (whether I edit it or leave it the way it is) the entire form looks wacky compared to one in IFRAME coding. This is upsetting.

Why don't you just delete the submit button from the form?

I tried that several times, but unfortunatley deleting the submit button also deletes the clear form button and the print button. I am trying to create a form that cannot be submitted online, only printed. The form that I'm trying to create requires a signature from the Department Head before it can be submitted to our office. Here's the example. Here is the alternate form. I wiggled a way around it by changing the properties to say "Do Not Click" and the return page to say that the form is not submittable (although we know it is). But you know people get that itch to be stupid and will click it just because it says not to LOL! Also I tried deleting it in the HTML version of the code, but I liked the IFRAME format as it's alot clearer and cleaner. I couldn't figure out how to clean up the HTML version. I'm pretty decent at HTML and CSS, but still learning.
Please advise. Thank you for responding.
By the way, I absolutely love your services. JotForm, by far has been the best I've seen. We currently only get around 15 submissions of forms a month, so we're using the free service for now. But we expect growth and are fully willing to pay for at least the 1,000 submissions tier. Great job guys! Keep us in mind if you ever start an affiliate program. We'd be more than happy to advertise your service.

I think you should use the full form source code and then remove the submit button from it.
To get full form source, open the form on the Form Builder:
1. Open "Setup & Share" tab on toolbar,
2. Click on "Share Form"
3. Click on "Advanced Options"
4. Click on "Full Source Code" and copy the form code.
Then, paste that code into a text editor and remove these lines:
button id="input_81" type="submit" class="form-submit-button"
The copy and paste that code to your web site. It will not have the submit button.

I tried that once before. I always end up with this:
My form loses the smoothness and professional look it had when I before used the IFRAME code:
Like this: (this is how it looks with the IFRAME code)
I don't know how to fix it. I'm stuck.

I guess the blogger changes the code. Do you have a regular hosting where you can just create an html page and post the form on it?
Then you can include the changed form on blogger.

I figured out something. In HTML on Blogger, it distorts the form no matter what I input or delete. For some reason it adds extra spacing to the original HTML code which distorts the form. If I go into "compose" mode instead of HTML mode, I can delete the spaces and bring everything back into it's almost original format. Took a few days, but finally got it halfway decent. Blogger is a real stinker for that. Thank you for your help! You can check out how it looks now. Not great but waaaaaaay better than before!

Thanks for the update. I'm glad it is possible to fix the spacing problems on compose mode.

This doesn't correct the issue when you use the "feedback tab" on your page. It would have been nice to allow for this when this site was set up. I suspect it's due to pricing for allowed submissions.
