I have few Custom fields on Lead. And i wanted them to be visible on Detail page but hidden on Edit page Layout. So i made those fields "Read Only" from Layout of Lead. But to my surprise those read Only fields are still visible on Edit/Create New Lead pages.
Anybody knows what am i doing wrong? OR its not possible to hide a field on edit page layout of Lead. (without creating formula field or VF page)?
ps. I am trying this with Custom Profile.
Thanks for your time!
