Insert - Select format dropdown


Hi, is there any option in IV (or is it possible to do this with code) to remove the default option 'Original' from the Insert -> "Select format"-dropdown?.

I've found this in the IVCore database:

MediaFormats \ 

Id TypeId Data Hash Name SystemFormat Deleted
1 4 {} 92225b935ad37a50b983c5e7c90ae93b Original 1 0

but if I change the Deleted field to true I get this error:


Sequence contains no matching element

More information about this error can be found in the logs.

If I try to change the Original name and/or data column I get the same error..

We have no configurable way to remove the orignal option from the insert menu.

Marking the original format as deleted is a bad idea since the cleanup job will find it and effectively wipe out all original media from the core service.

Hi again Dan,

is there any other good aproach to format the images that the editors will put in the TinyMCE-field?.
The problem is that our customer will use alot of very big pictures, and don't want the editors to choose "Original format" on these 5000x5000 images :).

Well, you can always hack the html for the insert menu and remove the Original item.

It is defined in the views\Library\_toolbar.cshtml file, line 52 and is a jquery template

Remember that this will be overwritten if you upgrade the installation.
