PDF form with buttons on multiple layers

I'm creating an interactive PDF with buttons that overlap on multiple layers. It's an interactive survey with multiple questions (always visible buttons) and I want to screen back the other questions(buttons) when an answer (hidden until activated button) for one question appears.
I'm trying to cover the always visible question buttons on the bottom layer with pop-up "hidden until activated overlays/buttons (a big box that screens back the other questions) on a higher layer so that the buttons below wouldn't be active with the overlay. It's so you don't accidentally answer question 3 while looking at the pop-up answer to question 1.
However, the pop-up overlays don't actually cover up the action of the buttons below. It seems the fact that they are always visible buttons raises them to the top layer and you can click and activate them even with the overlay on the screen.

Hopefully, this makes sense.
Does anyone know a solve for this?
Thanks

You have to show/hide the fields separately, as they are not (normally) associated with any specific layers and their visibility will not be affected by any changes you make to the visibility of those layers.
