    Thanks a lot for your answer.
    Somehow I’m a little surprised (maybe because I’m kind of a noob and don’t understand the system behing custom fields) that there is no built-in or relatively easy solution to display custom fields values in the backend.
    What actually surprises me is that more people don’t need this functionality (I had googled a lot before posting).

    Anyway, I really thought I could build a great system with ACF alone but I’m starting to wonder if want I want to do is out of ACF scope. If you don’t answer that’s fine 😉

    – I have a “product” custom post type with custom fields, including many internal ones.
    – I have a “proposals” custom post type with a repeater field to add products.

    – It would add some internal warning message related to Hotel XYZ below the table. Can be read-only, no problem.
    – It would also add the Hotel XYZ description (as a field in another repeater field, I suppose). However, I want this description to be editable (so, display the product description as default value of the field).
