Customizing the EasyCatalog Panel Flyout Menu

User-interface elements of EasyCatalog can be suppressed (disabled) or hidden using a “SuppressedUI.xml” file in the root of the EasyCatalog workspace folder. The XML file must be well-formed, with a single SuppressedUI element at the root.

The root element can contain any number of SuppressedMenu and SuppressedAction elements. SuppressedMenu elements have a menuName attribute, which specifies the EasyCatalog menu name. You can look up the EasyCatalog menu names in the table below. The restrictionName attribute can have a value of disable or hide.

SuppressedAction elements are used to disable or hide menu commands. The actionID attribute is the decimal value of the EasyCatalog command; these can be found in the table attached. The restrictionName attribute can have a value of disable or hide.

Here is an example Suppressed.xml file that hides the Reports menu and the Update Furniture command.

NOTE: The uiName attribute is not required, but helps you document which commands and menus you are restricting.

When you add a Suppressed.xml file to the EasyCatalog workspace folder, or edit an existing file, you must quit and restart InDesign before you will see the changes to the menus or commands. If your file is not well-formed or does not have the correct root element, you will see an error message when you start InDesign.
