Edit widget 'Editable' checkbox stays checked even after unchecking it

There seems to be no way now to make a field visible but not editable. The 'Immutable' widget has disappeared and unchecking the 'editable' checkbox has no effect since it appears checked again the next time you open Properties. (Tested on text edit widget)

Works fine for me.
Can you attach a sample project please.

I do not confirm the problem as described, but confirm the more general problem of, at this moment, there is no possibility of put a visible but not editable field.

This is because in Form View, text fields (text edit widget) despite being marked as not editable ('editable' checkbox unchecked), can be erased with the arrow button (see the image attached). This is a regression. The present form is useful because it allows us to select and copy the contents of the field, but still I think I preferred the old way (gray field, not selectable).

What about the best of both worlds? ;-)

If it's only the clear button, that should be easy to fix.

The original issue seems not to be reproducible and needs more information. If somebody is able to provide this information, please reopen.
