Descriptions Not Displayed When Solution is Deployed


As mentioned in the Discussions section, the field descriptions disappear from the New and Edit forms when this is activated. I love this application and it is in use in many of my sites but on others I need the field descriptions to show too.
Anyone have a fix for this yet?

I think it is defaulting to the wrong behavior. My guess is that until the editor (Form Setting page) is invoked on a list, its custom property isn't in the bag, and it does the wrong thing by default.

If you have a list that is missing descriptions, and you have never opened the Form Settings page for that list, go and open the Form Settings page and then hit OK, without changing anything, and I believe that sets the property and then the descriptions should appear.
