Hiding an embedded object in a document

About this task

You embed an object in a form for autolaunch so that users can make modifications to the object. You then specify a rich text field to display the latest representation of the object. If you want to display only the latest version -- not the original version -- of the object, you must design the form to hide the original embedded object. After the user makes changes to the object and returns to the document, only the changed version appears in the document.


  1. Open the form containing the object.
  2. Select the object you want to hide.
  3. Open the object's properties box.
  4. Click the Hide When tab.
  5. Select one or more options for hiding the object.
  6. Save and close the form.
