    In the form submissions page, you can uncheck an item in the settings. When it's unchecked, it won't be visible in the print output. You can do this to any field, hidden or not.

    No that does not solve my problem

     

    at the end of the form are buttons for submitting and printing.

     

    I want his to be submitted by omitted in the print version when it printed from the form not from the jotform console.

     

    To give you a idea why i want it. it has a client reference number that is not appropriate to be printed on the form.  but we still use the value

    This can be possible with the help of custom CSS codes added to your from. 

    For example, this is your form, https://form.jotform.com/60416114020941

    You need to get the "fieldID" of the Reference Number field that you would like hidden when printing.

    You can do that by inspecting your form from your browser.

    Then, add the CSS code similar to the codes below to your form, make sure that the fieldID is correct.

    (To select an element with a specific id, write a hash (#) character, followed by the id of the field)

    @media print{

    #id_6{

    display: none !important;

    }

    }

     

    Once you've added the code with the correct #fieldID, it should work like this:
