As developers, we all have hidden fields for computations, concatenations, etc. that we need to see during development and later for real-time debugging. I have tried many variations and have found one that works well for me.
Create a Role in the ACL called ViewHidden. In the Properties Box, check the box for "Hide paragraph if formula is true" and add the formula, @IsNotMember( "[ViewHidden]"; @UserRoles )
You can then easily add or remove yourself or others from the role when the fields need to be accessible.
This has worked nicely as a Hide Paragraph formula for my projects:
!@IsMember("Administrators";@UserNamesList)-- Brian B.
