I have a List and users with access cannot add items but only edit items. I've using a custom permission to ensure they can edit but not add or delete the details of the list item. However, if I remove the add permission, the edit field icon disappears and the user now needs to find the edit option in the ribbon. Any idea why add permissions and edit field may be tied together?
