Bear with me please, I am new to LiveCycle!

I am currently creating a form, which some questions are not required unless a particular answer is selected, So I am hoping to have the optional questions hidden from layout until an answer is selected and if the question is needed it will become visible.  This has been fine, but I realised that if someone wants to print out the form to fill it out, obviously those hidden questions are not printed.  So I started adding a script in the event "prePrint" for each hidden field - this.presence = "visible";

Which seemed to be working.  Until i came to a text field I have used as a "Caption/Question Title" for checkboxes.

For example:

// The below is currently Hidden (excluded from layout)

Example Question 2                         o Answer 1  o Answer 2 o Answer 2

I can get Answer 1, 2 & 3 to print (with their checkboxes)  but the text field I used to write the question in, won't let me put a script in any event. Is this something that is just not possible?  Or am I doing something wrong?

I would also like to know if there is a much simpler way to just have all hidden fields visible when printed?  Or if it is just adding to each event in each field like I have been?

I hope all of this makes sense!

I had made it a Text Object, as I couldn't figure out how to have two captions (The Question, and then the answers next to the checkboxes?

What would I use for the "Example Question 2"  so it can still be made with code in it?

For example:

Example Question 2                         o Answer 1  o Answer 2 o Answer 2
