@Jeff For some reason, the fields popped back up on their own and included all the original data stored for that page. I tried the method you proposed when the problem persisted, but it unfortunately did not fix the problem. It only created duplicate fields without the original data. As this is fixed – magically – I will mark your answer as having solved my question. Thanks for the response!
