Cascade in-contect edit

I am trying to restrict access to the format editor for user groups... is there a way to hide that from the in-context-editing window?
Again this would need to be hidden for regular users only (specific groups) not for my administrators. Not sure if there is a setting for that or how would be best way to hide this.
Please see attached image.
Thanks in advance!

    Hi Perla,

    To disable the ability to edit the Format from within in-context, you would need to set the user, or group, permissions on the Format to either NONE or READ. The edit icon (ie pencil) will only appear if the user has WRITE permission on the Format itself.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Not a problem at all, I am glad to hear adjusting permissions on the Format did the trick.

    I'm going to go ahead and close this discussion, please feel free to comment or reply to re-open if you have any additional questions.

    Have a great day!
