Can't make extracted text private?

I am using the Extract Text module, and when I try to set the resulting extracted text property to private on an item record and then save, it keeps switching back to being public. Ultimately, I’d like to have the extracted text be searchable but not appear on the item page on the public site. Is there another way to make the extracted text field private?

There’s an issue (now fixed) with the Extract Text module that interfered with users trying to set the extracted text values as private. However, switching to private isn’t exactly what you want, since that will also exclude those values from being searched.

Maybe the Hide Properties module will do what you want; it will just stop the selected properties from appearing when all values are listed (like on the item pages).
