Drew, this fits is a category of requests we are seeing a lot of lately. We call it conditional rendering. It is on our roadmap to implement throughout Skuid, but is not available in the declarative builder right now. In your case the Field Editor (or particular fields) would take a condition that makes it show only if the field’s record type was a particular value.
So, the official answer is that we know this is a customer need and are working on it.
Probably not good enough, but its what I’ve got.
I appreciate the honesty, and I look forward to the Solution.
