In that privilege set, what options did you select in the "available menu commands"?
Additionally, would it possible to create a single script that runs anytime a field is selected that would prevent deletion of that field's contents unless the current user created that field but not require it to be added to every single field?
I know of now way to do that without a) a script trigger on each field and b) system of fields or records to keep track of who initially entered data into that field.

And that would be it. I knew I was missing something both obvious and dumb, but didn't see it. The menu commands were set to minimum.
