When creating a new field in lotus notes it will be good to have the possibility to choose if the field will be hide or not in the document properties .
 
Actually it's not easy to do it:
 
- Replace design and hide Formula\Lotuscript -> will hide all fields sometime we need to see some of them for troubleshooting.
 
- Add $KeepPrivate in the doc, but you can see the beginning of the contains of the field .
 
- Encrypt field, or create document in other database is really not a usefull solution.

I vote 'no' mainly because I'm against 'security through obscurity'. If there's information you need hidden, and you've got a user who's smart enough to try the document properties to look at it, then hiding the properties is a poor fix at best given that there are so many other ways, such as private views, Shift-F9 ( { Link } ), etc.

It would be nice to be able to have "readers/authors" functionality at the field level, which would solve your problem in a secure way and make coding much easier than separating the sensitive info a separate document. I'd vote "yes" to such an idea.

*blush* It turns out there IS just such an idea already posted. { Link }

IMHO, a good solution - show the tab with the fields and their properties regardless of the hide of design, but only for the level of access "Developer" or above.
