Does 13 have the hide feature in the inspector? Let's assume it does:
You would select your field and in the hide caclulation enter something like
Field X = Y or whatever. Then the field hides if not Y or if Y etc.
If not, then you could use conditional formating on the field and set the calc as needed and then the background and text of the field to the same color as the background of the layout. It would then be visible when Y and invisible when not Y.
It does have the hide feature!
Please excuse the questions I am about to ask:
So the field I want to hide I click "Hide object when" then I would build the code as:
Field That is Checked ≠ ....Then what?
I can send screenshots if it helps.
The your condition is satisfied, the field will hide when the layout is in Browse mode and Find mode but not in layout mode (so you can see it).
I use this to hide a button to dial the phone when a device is not the iPhone Get(Device) Not 4
Alright this one is solved. Any chance you could help me on the Year issue?

Set up both a global field (or a global variable) and a non global field for the year.
When you want to change the year, go to a layout with this non-global field and edit the field to show the new year.
Use the OnFirstWindowOpen trigger to set a global field or a global variable to the value of this field. The global field and/or global variable will be accessible from any layout, script or calculation in your file. (You would only need a field for this for certain specific tasks such as using it in a match field in a relationship.
Thank you! That's perfect.
