I keep unchecking "Display as a link to the related record" to remove links from reports and checking it to show as links on forms. Both keep changing back, perhaps after other edits?

How do I lock this down? It's time consuming and frustrating.

The one option controls how it's shown in any instance where the field is used. So, if you select it, it will show as a link in both Reports and on Forms. If you need it to show as a link in one instance and not in others, you will need to create a Formula Text field and use the original field as the value of the formula. You can then use the Formula Text field where you do not want the link to be shown.
