So I have created a form that has hidden fields in the middle of my form. These fields are hidden based off of specific selections from other fields. My problem is, I have fields after these hidden fields. So when these fields are hidden, I have a lot of blank space between the viewable fields. Any way to remove this empty space when fields are hidden? sorry I said hidden so much. Cassy Freeman Emily Billing Philipp Lucas

Good Morning Josh Shutts – What you'll want to do is place these conditionally hidden fields within a panel and use rules to show/hide the panel according to your needs as opposed to doing so with the individual fields.
As long as your form controls aren't overlapping the panel and are fully contained within it, the panel will both be hidden and not occupy any blank space.
Thanks for the response. I do have a panel around all of these "hidden" fields. And I reformatted so nothing is over-lapping. Still getting the empty space.
The fields inside the panel. I have a field above these fields that is a pass or fail. The fields stay hidden when the pass is selected and populated when the fail is selected.
Here's a quick example using Office 365. I've got a panel that's fairly large with the attachments control within it. I've set the panel to not be visible and you can see the additional blank space isn't being occupied.

I've done this with O365 and SP2013 so I don't think that's the culprit. Here's a few things you might try:
I just altered my test form and am able to see the space disappear when I toggle a Yes/No boolean.
