  6. Set operator to "equals"

  7. Set value to "false"

  8. Under "Search" select "Object Permissions"

  9. In the box next to it type [Object: Read] - notice the space between object and read

  10. Click "Find"

  11. Under "Available Settings" select [Object: Read]

  12. Add item selected above to the right-hand side under "Selected Settings"
