I was having the issue here (logintoboggan/file_permissions combo): http://drupal.org/node/1722134 which is now patched and fixed. However, I have several fields that are set to 'View anyone's value' but those fields are only showing to logged in users.

If I disable field_permissions module completely, they re-apprear for anonymous users so it has to be an issue with some permissions getting messed up?

Is there a way to clear/rebuild the permissions in the db to see if that fixes things? any other suggestions for getting this working would be great as there are some admin only fields I have in places which really need hiding but the rest needs to be visible.

p.s. unchecking everything/rechecking doesn't fix.
p.p.s. setting the permissions to 'public', instead of custom, doesn't fix the problem either - so the incorrect field_permissions perms are overriding the standard ones even when not set to 'custom'?

I am having this problem now. As it turns out, I don't have any fields that need to be restricted so I've disabled the module entirely to see if the problem gets worked out. I am rebuilding my permissions as I speak, which reminded me that this might also be the answer to your issue.

Go to Reports > Status Report > and find the link on that report that says "Rebuild Permissions". Make a backup of your database before, just in case you did something that you DON'T want corrected.

Hope that helps.

And to follow up, disabling and rebuilding my permissions did not restore visibility to my fields. I may have a different issue than you.

I found a solution to this issue, see commend #2 here: http://drupal.org/node/1936898#comment-7243678

I don't know if the problem needs to be resolved in Field Permissions or in Feeds.

Issue is old enough I'm closing it. There's a chance this is fixed anyway.
