SharePoint Online, I have following 4 site content types Word Document Excel document PowerPoint document General document

These content types are being used in a document library and "Word Document" is the default content type, When user clicks on "new" menu, all 4 content types are shown.

I don't want to show "General document" in the new menu but I want to show in edit form, I have marked it hidden in the library settings but now it is not visible in the edit form.

Any idea how can I hide content type from the new button but show in edit form? JavaScript hide is not preferred.

    One thing would to create new forms using Infopath. In this way you can create totally different forms for new, edit and display. – Christoffer Mar 5 '15 at 6:32
  • Looks like it is not possible, I would go for JavaScript solution. – Ali Mar 5 '15 at 23:14
  • Or, you could use powershell to hide the content type column in the new item form for the specific list. Works out to. :) mroffice365.com/2012/05/… – Christoffer Mar 6 '15 at 7:17
