Preventing user entry of data into global field

I made a Help layout with a Global Field. I would like to prevent the user from entering data into that field. I tried the "Field Format" and unchecking "Allow Entry into Field" but then the user cannot scroll through the Help section. Is there another way for me to enter the Help info but not allowing the user to change that info...

thx

Sure: make a calculated field that = the global field. Then let them browse the calc field.

One limitation however is that all text formatting will be lost.

Vaughn's saying:

If the global help field is named g.help, make a calculation field (I'll call it cg.help) with the only text in the calculation dialog being "g.help". Put the calculation field cg.help on the layout with Allow Data Entry enabled. No relationship is necessary.
