A layout in my database has text fields with scroll bars. I have users who use the layout only to browse records. (They cannot make changes the records). If I uncheck allow field to be entered in browse mode, The scroll bars get disabled too. How can I allow a user scroll through a text field but disable Editing the text in the text field?

The "easy" way is to make a calculation field that equals the text field, and display the calculation field.

A smarter way might be to use access privileges to not allow editing in the field, but I'm not sure whether that disallows entry as well.
