Thank you for contacting WebViewer support.
Could you please provide us with what you have on the variable “DISABLE_ELEMENT_LIST”?

Thank you in advance.

DISABLE_ELEMENT_LIST have the name of data-element “toolsHeader”
I also tried with below code
instance.UI.disableElements([ ‘toolsHeader’ ]);

if there is any workaround to hide this? Either through custom css or programmatically using JS

I tried with custom CSS but custom CSS not applying on there.


Thank you for the provided information.
I was able to reproduce the issue. Since this is an old version of our product I was wondering if would it be an option for you to upgrade the WebViewer to at least version 8.1. This issue is fixed on this version and you would only need to disable the “toolsHeader” and “header”
