    Limit creation of document types

    I was wondering if there is any way of stopping a document type from showing in the “Create new document” dialogue.  My scenario is that I have certain document types that I want the site to contain, I want all my editors to be able to change information within the documents, but I don’t want them to be able to create a document of the given type.

    After you created the node you could change the structure of the parent documenttype and to not allow that documenttype as a child. The node of the documenttype you already created will stay, but the user can't add any more nodes of that documenttype because the structure won't allow it.

    As Jeroen says, it´s the only way of doing it in current versions of Umbraco. It would have been nice to have a boolean flag on the doc. type that says it can be created at root level. Maybe something for v5???
