Hidding shapes in summary admin? Content summary?

I'm attempting to make my content list (when clicking on content in the admin area). The list because of modules I've added as fields make the list pages upon pages. Below is a placement I'm attempting to use to block it (atleast in the summary not in the detail/edit).
    <Match DisplayType="SummaryAdmin">
        <Place Parts_Files="-"/>
        <Place Parts_Files_Edit="-"/>
If I could use the shape tracer in the admin area that would help. Any ideas?

I'm not sure that I understand the question or the issue, but I'm assuming that you attached a part to a content type, and now you are seeing the shapes rendered by the part's driver in the content list view in the admin. To block those, I'd say your placement.info file looks correct.
  • Make sure that this placement.info file is part of your module generating the Parts_Files shape, and not for example your theme.
  • Verify that the shape names are correct
  • Sanity check: remove the Match element, making your Place elements top level elements. If you're still seeing your shapes appear in the admin summary list view, something else is wrong, but it would be impossible to tell what with the current information.
