    Hi, If I hide a required field based on a show/hide condition earlier in the form, does the hidden 'required' field remain required?  Or does hiding the required field make it so the required field is no longer required?  This is important with my stripe integration that must be presented to certain applicants based on the choices made earlier in the form.  Thanks.

    It will remain *Required.  Even if you hide a mandatory/required field, it will remain in *Required state.

    So this can become a problem sometimes on your Conditional statements when the form cannot be submitted -- which turned out there was just a hidden required question.

    There is also a condition rules that can enable/disable or required/unrequired field. You can use this in combination with Show/Hide rules as well to for a more sophisticated logical conditions on your form.
