Upfront: I am now using Alfresco 1.4 Community Preview edition.

This post is actually 2 questions in one:

Current situation:

Upto now I only made changes to files in the following folderpath:
And the files created/changed upto now are:

blablaModel.xml  (custom type + properties + constraints)
web-client-config-custom.xml (show custom properties in PropertySheet + Advanced Search)

Specific Questions:

1) How can I restrict the field "type"  to only contain our custom documenttype (e.g. Bla Bla Document) instead of both "content" and "Bla Bla Document") shown in the "General Properties" frame when Adding or Creating Content? What configuration file(s) to change and in which folderpath(s)?

2.) Since I created a custom property (defined at  Bla Bla Document) Author (let's call this 'blablaAuthor'), I want to hide the standard property 'Author' in "Details view of a document", "Modify Content Properties Screen" and in the "Advanced Search screen" (under more search options). Again  what configuration file(s) to change and in which folderpath(s)?

I hope this can be changed in a file in the "C:\Alfresco\tomcat\shared\classes\alfresco\extension"  folderpath, thus keeping the changes simple, clean and portable to newer versions of Alfresco.
