Hi all,
Thanks for the quick answers. I will give them a try.
I just found another solution that seems even smaller but less configurable.

hide field id 1012 with dissolve

show field id 1012 with dissolve

Now I just need to set it up in a way that it doesn't stop the rest of the
work that is being done in the background


Have a great weekend,

Pascal
