Hidding the summary field from Everyone On The Internet group?

I have discovered when I make access equal to "none" to a child record summary field for Everyone On The Internet, that this hides the custom submit button as well. This is not desirable.

The summary field is a link to a related work ticket in another app that is not externally facing.

Is it possible to hide the child record summary field from role without the submit button vanishing?  I would like to avoid creating another form for the purpose of removing one field.

One option would be to set up a Section heading, position the Summary fields you want to hid beneath that, and then write a dynamic form rule that says "if the user is in the role "X" hide the Section "Y".

This technically leaves the field on the form, but uses a form rule to hide it from the everyone on the internet role. Using the User permissions section on related tables can be tricky because it's easy to create permissions that contradict one another. Effectively you are saying you want the role to have access (when you set the access on the button field" then you say you don't when you tell them they can't view the results of the button they press.

See iuf that works and let me know.
