Read only linked fields

Hi all!


I am trying to make some contact fields that are linked to company fields read only. As the fields are linked to the company I don't want my users to try and change the data on the contact screen as it will be over written as soon as some one runs an update all contact records from company records. 


My issue is that when I make these fields read only they stop updating when the field contents are changed on the company field. Thuse defeting the purpose all together.


Does anyone have a salution to this?


thank you!

Working as designed. Read only fields can't be written to unless the read only property is removed.
