List Manager Issue

Hi there!

1. Cannot seem to change properties of a "Name" column. When you hover over the column, the box outline appears, but the dropdown does not display to change properties. This is true for all Name fields (with or without link).

2. "Make read-only"...isn't really read-only. It actually hides the contents of the field from display, so in effect read-only is "hide". Would love it if entry/edit forms could have viewable, but read-only fields.

1. You can only change the properties of the custom columns. All the columns created by the system itself such as name, modified by etc...aren't amendable

2. Read-only is the way SharePoint's read-only field works. To really make a field appear as read-only in edit/new forms, it requires a much heavier customization but it's doable.

Best Regards
