This is probably not on anyone’s agenda, but I was wondering if it is possible to disable the circle that appears around lookups when referenced by another row. I’m very sensitive to certain details and all of the shapes on the screen can really become an issue for me. I try to use lookups and then reference them with a select list, but then if I change the name on those lists then it breaks the chain, and it also requires additional setup.
Really disabling is not possible, as its a feature to recognize the lookup.
The good news is that you can create a view of the same table where you call the lookup column as text and can hide the lookup column. In this way you can make the “front end” looking up to your preference and at the “backend” keep the possibilities to select as needed.
