Hi :)

I'm trying to simplify the Alfresco Explorer UI. I created a web-client-config-custom.xml file to override some of the default configuration rules. I was able to remove actions in the browser view and the Details view for folders (spaces) and documents but some of them are still visible and I don't know how to remove them.

These actions are :

- the Copy action in the Browse screen and the Show Details screen (for spaces and documents)
- the Preview in template action in the Browse screen and the Show Details screen (for spaces and documents)
- the Start Advanced Workflow action in the Browse screen and the Show Details screen (for documents)

Here is the part of my web-client-config-custom.xml file which contains the customization of the actions:

<!– Actions for a space in the Browse screen –>
   <action-group id="space_browse">
      <show-link>true</show-link>
      <style-class>inlineAction</style-class>
      <action idref="details_space" />
   </action-group>
   
   <!– Actions Menu for a space in the Browse screen –>
   <action-group id="space_browse_menu">
   </action-group>
   
   <!– Actions for a document in the Browse screen –>
   <action-group id="document_browse">
      <show-link>true</show-link>
      <style-class>inlineAction</style-class>
      <action idref="download_doc" />
      <action idref="details_doc" />
   </action-group>

   <!– Actions Menu for a document in the Browse screen –>
   <action-group id="document_browse_menu">
   </action-group>
   
   <!– Actions Menu for More Actions in Browse screen –>
   <action-group id="browse_actions_menu">
      <action idref="details_space" />
   </action-group>
   
   <!– Actions Menu for Document Details screen –>
   <action-group id="doc_details_actions">
      <action idref="download_doc" />
      <action idref="create_shortcut" />
   </action-group>
   
   <!– Actions Menu for Space Details screen –>
   <action-group id="space_details_actions">
      <action idref="create_shortcut" />
   </action-group>
   
   <!– Actions Menu for File Link Details screen –>
   <action-group id="filelink_details_actions">
      <action idref="download_doc" />
   </action-group>

   <!– Actions Menu for Folder Link Details screen –>
   <action-group id="spacelink_details_actions">
   </action-group>

I didn't see any action configuration regarding the workflow in the web-client-config-actions.xml file so I don't know where to disable these actions  :(

Thanks for you help :)

ps: I'm using Alfresco Community 3.3G
