How To Create An Invisible Controlled Section

In any form, if you want to control editing in certain section of the form, you
need to create a controlled section specifying who are the authorised editors.
What I am going to show you is to build a controlled section in the form but is
invisible to the users.

Steps :
1. Create a controlled section as per normal
2. Under the Section Property
a. Select Auto-expand for Previewed, Opened for Reading, Opened for Editing
and Printed under Editors Option
b. Select Auto-expand for Previewed, Opened for Reading, Opened for Editing
and Printed under Non-Editors Option
c. Select Hide Title when expanded
d. Hide the paragraph when document is Previewed for Reading, Opened for
Reading, Printed, Previewed for Editing, Opened for Editing and Copied

By using this method, you can create many invisible controlled sections on the
form without affecting the visual display of the form.
