    It finally started working on this form.  But now it's not working on another form:

    Could you please explain what exactly is not working on the 52744226585158 form? Do you need help with showing/hiding some fields with CSS? Thank you.

    I'm trying to hide a substring widget field - "First Initial".  It doesn't need to be seen at all, it just helps fill in the user's email address.

    Thank you for your update. I have found the widget field ID with Chrome DevTools.

    And then added the next CSS.

    #id_94 {
    display : none;
    }

    Please re-check the form now.

    Also a feature request ticket has been forwarded to our Development Team to see if we can add the show/hide field option for our widget field.
