To enable the design button, grant the user (or group) "Modify" permission to /etc/designs/<designName>. This can be done as an administrator via the useradmin [0].

Can you provide more detail around specifically which node under etc/designs needs to have 'Modify' applied?

I think I want a particular group of users to have access to Design mode via the Sidekick so they can add and hide components from a particular template. But I don't understand what else they will have access to if they get 'Modify' for ALL of etc/designs/. I don't see an obvious <design name> under etc/designs that seems appropriate?

What else will they have access to if they get 'Modify' for etc/designs/*?

Thank you for your reply 🙂

I also want to hide "design" [img]2.jpg[/img]  button from the sidekick. How can i restrict the visibility of Design button for the particular user/group   ??

To hide the design button simply "deny" (uncheck) the modify permission for the particular user or group.
