I want to hide the workflow button: Ribbon.List.Settings.ManageWorkflows

Which scope should the feature have (web or site)?

Now I try:

<HideCustomAction Id="RemoveRibbonButton"

on site scoped feature. But it doesn't work.

This is XML to hide ManageWorkflows button.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Elements xmlns="">
          Location="Ribbon.List.Settings.ManageWorkflows" />

Is it possible to revert this operation (if I need this ribbon button in the future)? – Anatoly Mironov Sep 6 '11 at 12:48
Just retract solution and you have your button back. – Vedran Rasol Sep 6 '11 at 12:50
