    Thanks for your response, but this now leads me to a new issue. When I pull up designer, I can't even see the fields I want to edit.

    I believe the fields set to hidden or those conditionally hidden will not be displayed in the Form Designer Tool. Here's an example test form I made:

    Here you can see I have an address field that is set by default to hidden.

    In the form designer tool, it won't show up. 

     

    Same cases for those fields that are conditionally hidden.

     

    I believe this is somewhat a bug or a design flaw. The fields displayed in the Form builder should also be displayed in the Form Designer Tool to further design the hidden fields without requiring them to be unhidden. 

    I will forward this to our developers to have it checked. Apologies for the inconvenience. For the meantime, you might need to disable or un-hide them first if you are designing them in the Form Designer Tool.

    Apologies for the inconvenience.
