How do I grant anonymous users 'edit' access to form while locking down customize form settings? Tried hiding UI for creating and customize report with no success.

I have granted access to anonymous users on the internet with ‘EDIT’ access to one of the tables in my application while locking down all other functionalities (i.e, Hiding UI for creating and customizing reports). The anonymous users can edit the data via an editable embedded table inside a form I created. What I discovered was that even with disabling the ability to create and customize report, the anonymous can still get to the form settings by right clicking on the editable embedded table by selecting ‘Edit the property of this form element’.

My question is the following.....Is there a way to restrict access such that they can only edit the data field but without access to customize the form itself?

Is that Role set to "Basic Access" in Role Permissions?

I was just struggling with this myself on an App I had downloaded.  I found that there are many "Hide" check boxes on the Roles page that will allow you to hide various parts of the UI.  The one you are looking for is the "Hide UI for Creating or Customizing Reports."
