I am using Sharepoint 2010. I have several lists whose view includes the column "Edit (Link to Item)" in the default view. I am the site admin so when I view the list the "Edit" column appears with the small "paper and pencil" icon and it works
I needed some users to only be able to view and edit existing items (not add or delete). So I have created a site level permissions that I copied from "Read" and only checked the "Edit Items - Edit items in lists, edit documents in
document libraries, and customize Web Part Pages in document libraries" under Lists.
This new permission level does allow users to see the edit menu item on the standard "Title" hyperlink dropdown, but in the"Edit" column there isn't an icon or any clickable link to edit in the column. Only from the menu. Its as if the icon won't
appear if I don't give them Add capability which is what I don't want.
Thanks for any tips,
