Using the format of the attached form. I would like to make it to where the unused fields are not visible unless needed. Is there a way to create a row of fields that the user could unhide or copy and insert under the previous section if additinoal info is needed? As you see, currently there are 10 Dependent fields, that most will not use. Can I create a button that will insert a new "row" when needed? I tried the hide option, but then it just left a big open space. I would prefer it to not look like that. I hope this makes sense. Thank you for any assistance.

I am currently using Adobe DC.

PDF forms are not dynamic in this way, unless they were created using LiveCycle Designer.

In order to do it you would need to convert all subsequent elements on the page (and following pages) to fields and use a script to move them all in unison. That's very complicated and requires a lot of work, although maybe not in your case if that is the full file. Either way, I don't think it's worth the trouble, but that's up to you...
