The ability to add explanatory text to a page layout would be very useful. At the moment we have achieved this by creating custom formula fields (type text area) with default text, but it only displays on the View screen, not the Edit screen (so is not much use for guiding the user on their input). Also, it means we are storing an extra 255 characters for each record, which contains the same default text in every record. If we added 4 or 5 of these 255-character explanatory notes on a record, this would mean saving an extra 1000+ characters on every record - what a waste of storage space!!

Found this after looking for a way to add descriptive text or disclaimers to certain parts of the page layout, available in display or edit mode. I can create a formula field that will display my text on the display page, but my boss keeps asking for disclaimers that explain certain things as a record is being created.
