yes i had experimented with this already but it doesn't work, i must be 
doing sth wrong ...

so i edit my user and put this into the Backend Users TSconfig to for 
example hide the field contact_data_source:

page.TCEFORM.tx_realty_objects.types.0.contact_data_source {
   disabled = 1
page.TCEFORM.tx_realty_objects.types.1.contact_data_source {
   disabled = 1

And for this to work i have to have tcamanipulate runnig ? (which i do)

What about the editing of extTables.php through the $TCA browser, 
shouldn't that work since it generates a list of things/fields in 

I'm sorry for my ignorance, i've battled myself through a lot of 
tutorials and TSref and TSconfig ref but i have no experience with this 
and am still a bit lost
