When using a CAF field of type 'Long Text' on an inline subpage CAF implementation, such as PS_COMMITTEE, the CAF field is always shown with Rich Text enabled regardless of whether or not this is selected on the CAF attribute.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Go to Set Up SACR > Common Definitions > Common Attributes Setup > Common Attribute and add new attribute without enabling rich text editing.
2. On Record Context page for Record ACAD_PROG, associate new attribute to Inline Subpage using attribute record PS_COMMITTEE.
3. Run the Entity Property Sync process and wipe entity cache by navigating to Set Up SACR > System Administration > Entity > Entity Property Sync. Also, click on the Wipe Entity Cache button.
4. Go to Records and Enrollment > Career and Program Information > Student Program/Plan. Go to Additional Information tab.

The issue has the following business impact:

Due to this issue, users cannot implement CAF field without rich text enabled.
