Fields Not Showing When Viewing A Form

I have several fields that I can see when I Add or Edit a form, but they do not show up when I View the form.  I checked the field's settings on the Customize This Form --> Elements tab and found that all of the fields are set to be visible for Add/Edit/View.  But they definitely do not show up in "View" mode.

Here are some screen shots to show you what I'm dealing with.  This is probably an easy fix that I'm just not aware of, so any advice you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

The last check I'd make would be to check the dynamic form rules that might be hiding the fields.

Thank you! I am building off a pre-loaded template and it has some funky rules. I haven't figured out how to use the rules yet, but this was definitely my problem because the fields would show up in one configuration of the form, but not in others. I disabled the rules and voila! 

Hiding rules? Who knew!

That was it! I had a rule that showed those fields based on the selection in another field.  If that selection was "positive" then the fields showed. Apparently if you are in view mode, it doesn't read whether or not that selection is positive and defaults to "hidden."
