    We are running Groupwise 6.5.4 and just installed Formativ Runtime with the Presentation Pack that includes Multiple Signatures, Remote Image Inserter, Stationery and Template features.

    The only one of these features we are going to use is Stationery. To reduce toolbar clutter and avoid confusion among our users, I want to remove the other icons from the GW toolbar.

    I am able to do this by dragging the icons off the toolbar, both in the mailbox view and when composing a new message – but when I then close Groupwise and re-open it, the icons have returned.

    How can I remove them so that they stay gone?

    Thank you,

    Christy

    You can remove these applets from the GroupWise toolbar by updating each applet integrations. By default, all these applets are integrate with GroupWise toolbar. You need Formativ Studio or Creator to edit the applet integrations.

    Once you installed the Formativ Studio or Creator, start Formativ IDE from GroupWise toolbar, select the applet, click the Integrations tab and uncheck the ‘GroupWise Main Window’ toolbar checkbox option. See the ‘Developers Guide’ for more information.

    Hope this helps.

    Another way to remove the unwanted icons is to remove/rename the corresponding applet files which were installed by the Presentation Pack installer. For each of your users, follow the directions below:

    • If you chose to install for the current user only, use File Explorer to find the directory similar to:

      C:Documents and Settings[user name]My DocumentsAdvansysFormativApplets

      If you chose to install for all users, use File Explorer to find the directory below:

      C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataAdvansysFormativ1.0Applets

    • Delete the following files (or rename them with an extension like “.bak”):

      Multiple Signatures_Flexalock.vbf
      Remote Image Inserter_Flexalock.vbf
      Templates_Flexalock.vbf

    You may need to do an equivalent file removal if distributing applets via eDirectory.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks, this worked great.

    A follow-up question: my users are also bothered by the “Formativ Portals” icon that appears above their Inbox in the Folders List. I have deleted it, but it also reappears. Can it be permanently removed?

    Thank you!

    You can remove the portal folder using the Formativ Control Panel applet. Click ‘Start’ – ‘Control panel’ – select ‘Advansys Formativ’ – select ‘User Interface’ tab – uncheck ‘Create a portal folder in GroupWise called:’ checkbox.

    Hope this helps.
