How do I hide a report item in SSRS 2005 and have it not take up space in the generated report?

I have a report written in SSRS 2005. I conditionally hide some elements.
The elements hide fine, however, they still take up screen realestate  in the generated report.

How can I hide some thing in a report and not have it take up space in the generated report?

For example:

My report design has:
Rectangle A

Rectangle B

Rectangle C

I hide Rectangle B and I see in the generated report
Rectangle A

(space for what would have been occupied by Rectangle B)

Rectangle C

What I would like to see is:
Rectangle A

Rectangle C

How do I accomplish this?

One way is to stack the rectangles on top of each other and hide or view.
