You can't delete fields, but you can slide them up or to the left. This sliding is only visible when you print or preview the layout where you've enabled sliding.
You'd specify sliding for both the field that may be empty and the fields that will slide up/over if it is.
How do I enable sliding?
- Enter Layout mode.
- Select all the fields and objects you want to slide if the field is empty.
- Select the desired sliding options in the sliding and visibility section of the Position tab of the Inspector.
- Preview your layout to see the result.
