A new Hide-When property to hide items from the property box also.
Or Property box should only contain the list of fields for designers?

I'm for option 2 + Admins.

Show fields in property box only for access level 'Designer' and above!

Certainly visibility of fields is needed for Designers

If a user can access a document / item there's no hiding it. What's the point of hiding the items from users? Is it purely cosmetic? Surely you're not suggesting this as security feature?

Sorry, demoting this one.

Hi Mark,

But this is a security feature, as a user can see some "technical" fields or fields that are hidden from him on the form.

I know....encrypt them. But You can't encrypt everything. (management on encryption keys are nor so easy for users, and admins)

btw, let's see this from another point of view: why the user needs to see those fields, and other TECHNICAL data? Is there any practical reason for this? I think NO! This function is simply NOT-FOR-USERS!

Cardinal Rule # 1 of Lotus Notes. If you have sensitive information in a document that a user has reader access to and should not, that information should be in a separate RESPONSE document with READER field. Pure and simple - there is no way around this by trying to hide information using the client. If you serve sensitive fields, that information has left the server and arrived at a client host computer and easily accessed one way or another.
