Interactive Editor App - Customizing functions/toolbar

    as we had to develop a customized workflow for a customer with the interactive editor app (IEA), we did not wanted to pass control of a document outside our control. As with the standard functions i.e. PRINT is possible for the user to choose and print a document locally before it is passed on inside the workflow and could be sent to a customer without review or archiving.

    The toolbar inside the IEA is customizable via an XML file inside the program folder where the IEA had been installed.
    Typically you'll find features.xml under the path of: C:\Program Files (x86)\Pitney Bowes\EngageOne Compose\Interactive Editor App\.

    1. make a backup of features.xml to features-xml.bkp
    2. Use notepad or any other texteditor to open the file
    3. look up the features you want to enable/disable and note their ID numbers
    4. browse to the end of the file where <featuresets> begin
    5. Inside <featureset name="Interactive"> there are all the currently enabled features 6. You can comment out the non-desired features by putting <!-- before <fsentry featureid="xxx" /> and behind this: -->
    6. restart the app and you will see your feature has disappeared!

    Note: to disable PRINT the featureid is "17" !

    When distributing your interactive editor app, make sure you distribute the modified features.xml to apply your settings to the client - this is not server controlled.

    Hope this helps others!
