Again Fields Have More Conflicts Than Iris Could Ever Think.

When you use an editable text type multi value field to store a numeric values
such as Phone or fax numbers, and you want to dispplay these numbers in other
format and sizes, you will set the attribute of this field to hide when opening
for reading/printed to display the other alternate computed for display field
which will has the attribute hide when opening for editing.

If you fill your editable field with more than one value (one of them atleast
then if you executed the @Command([ViewShowPageBreaks]) by an action button or
by a macro, it will execute normally, but when you execute the command again to
revert to normal edit mode then you will get the error message saying:

(Only plain text can be used in this type of field) and stop execution.

To work around, you can execute the command from the view menu directly to
revert happily to the normal edit mode.
