I need adobe sign document, where needs to be changing forms depending of certain checkboxes. There will be 3 different topics pointing to checkboxes and when each checkbox is true there should be certain form set visible positioned right so there wont be any empty spaces on the pages. I mean if i use show/hide, other content's position wont change and there is just empty space when forms are hidden. How i can show / hide forms while remaining visible content updates its position nicely?

You can't, Sign forms are just not that dynamic. You can hide the field, but can not hide the space the hidden form takes up, something that comes from the fact that underpinning the form is a statis PDF form.

If you want true dynamic forms, then an API based solution is needed, where you can use different form tech (html form ms forms, power apps, Adobe AEM xfa form etc) and have the form submit to create a Sign agreement via the api.

I would love to see more dynamic capability in Adobe Sign, as with Sam post I have a document (background check) where if someone marks "Yes" on a check box to the question "have you ever been convicted of a crime" I want another form to populate (a self -report form where they explain the nature of the crime). Of course this form is not need/ doesn't need to be visible if they mark "No"

Yes, I understand I could have that form and its fields be conditional to the "Yes” but the issue is the form would be visible to everyone and just be 3 blank (not filled out) pages in the final PDF in most cases.

We currently have a little pop up message that conditionally pops up when “Yes” is marked that basically says when you are do with this form you now also need to go fill out this other Web from for the Self-Report form. So it isn’t clean at all with either avenue.  

This sort of “conditional page” was also not possible in DocuSign when my university used that signature software, would be nice if Adobe Sign could develop it for future functionality.

Agree with Eduardo. Users need a conditional FORM, not just field. I can think of many uses for this functionality. Please add it to your list of tools to develop.
