Formula fields should show on new/edit page

Customization & App Building

Currently, formula fields are not displayed on the page when editing an existing record (unless you are using in-line editing).    It would be nice if this information was displayed so that people who need this information to make the edit can see it on the same screen.

This should be super easy and quick to put in place since the formula fields are always read only anyway.

    This idea will be delivered in Spring '16 in the new Lightning Experience. On a broader level, we have taken steps to unify the fields a user sees in normal Detail Pages and New/Edit pages so that formula fields, summary rollups, embedded Visualforce and Custom Links (on Accounts, Contacts, Leads) will be visible on New/Edit pages for a user's reference.
