    I was also able to encounter this glitch when I test on my end. Sometimes the show Columns will not show properly. It will only work when you refresh the browser.

    Here is the problem


    An alternative way you can do is to use the Option in the form view submission page.

    You can just check/uncheck the field you want to show/hide in the view grid.

    Check this video for guidance.

    I will submit also a report to our higher team support so that they can fix the glitchy column header option.

    We will let you know here when we have update on the status.

    Let us know if you need further help.

    Is it possible to change the fields shown in the grid without it affecting the pdf/print settings?  I want to keep all the headers/text etc in the pdf/printed submission but not view it in the submission grid or the preview.
