@Nic Brough [Adaptavist] Dude - you are the man! Thank You so much. That was it. How in the heck does the JIRA Toolkit get uninstalled... Wow! Great service provided by you today.
I am dealing with two issues here, both related to the custom field "Text Field (read only)"
I appreciate any assistance that can be provided.

Correct. It says it on the help screen - a custom read-only text field *must* be populated by code, it's the only way to get data into it. There is no bug here, the message you're getting from the "where is my field" is correct - The field 'Component - Impact - Instructions' does not have value for issue (issue number here) and will not be displayed on the view issue page. Set value for that field so that it shows up. What I *suspect* you might have done is mixed up the (built in) "read only text field" with the (Jira Toolkit provided) "message text", where you set a value in the default and it splats it out on to the screen?
You are correct! I didn't even notice that limitation when I created it. It was the only read only field option and I "assumed" it was the one I remember. It appears that they have removed that functionality from JIRA. Why the heck would they do that. Thank you for your time, much appreciated!
See screen shot 1.b I am confused, are you saying that the only way you can input data that is displayed as read only is via Code? When I used this in the past I was able to configure it just like I did in 1.b. While that is an interesting point, before I go down that path, why the conflicting "Where is my Field" analysis? One would think that we should solve that issue first before moving on to the how the field gets populated.
