I have a number of users which should have access to create/edit/delete content on my site, including inserting new components to pages. To ensure that they can insert and change components I have given them the roles:

  • sitecore\Designer
  • sitecore\Author

With the above roles, the users also get access to the "Edit Experience Editor Options" which is not something I wan't ordinary editors to have access to. Is it possible to limit the access to this?

& apply corresponding security on this item.

It would look like :
