    That's because you are using update/calculate field condition instead of Show/Hide Field condition.

    Note that text and images can't be set as an output field when you are using update/calculate condition. That's the reason why only selected fields appear on the list.

    Hope this information helps!

    Hello!

    I was trying both options including the show/hide field.

    My workaround was to close the google chrome tab and open jotform.com on a new tab. Then I could see all options in the show/hide field including IF: “Language”. There still seems to be the bug somewhere that language disappears in google chrome from time to time (also tested with IE -> same result). But as I can just close the browser tab, reopen it and then it works, it’s ok for me as a workaround.

    By the way I just want to say thank you: I think jotform.com is amazing! I never thought webforms can be created that easily. Great job!
    BR, Lutz

    Thanks for your quick response and sorry to miss your point. I think this is still related to the language that disappears at some point. Thought it was something else. :)

    Anyway, a ticket was already created from this thread and hopefully it will be resolved soon.

    Regards!
