I have to reset the field permissions every time I edit a field. Resets to default (no access) after every save.

You wouldn't happen to be using the contrib module Login Toboggan, do you? I'm investigation a problem that sounds like yours and I've tracked it down to Login Toboggan.

Yes I am using it.

Just for reference, it sounds like there's another conflict with LoginToboggan too: #1407564: CSS conflict with logintoboggan, prevents using Custom Permissions (field_permissions module)

But if I understand this issue correctly they are actually not the same bug...

Hello there!

I am having the same issues on our site. However, I'm not using LoginToboggan. Do you have any other suggestions on what this could be?

If anyone is experiencing the same thing now, could you provide more information here? A few things could be happening.

Some questions:

- Do other settings on the field save properly? -- Label, Help text, Number of values, etc?
- If you set the permission to "Public" or "Private" do those options stay (in other words, is this purely an issue with the "Custom Permissions" option?
- Do the settings seem to work otherwise? (Are custom permissions applied, even if they're forgotten?)
- Is there any chance you're trying to save the permissions on a per-instance level, instead of a per-field level? (In other words, saving a Body field as "public" on Articles, then seeing values overridden for the Body field on a Page.)
