I encounter some trouble removing a button on the page. 

When I use "Edit Section -> Background -> Art", an extra button appears on the page. 
It's the button to Play / Stop animations. Is there any way to remove this?


I managed to find it using 'Inspect Element', but I am not able to remove/ hide it. 
Could you please help a friend?

The button is there to allow users to pause the animations. This is because animations can ruin the user experience for many people. In fact, animation can make for a distracting, uncomfortable, or outright intolerable experience when users have a disability.

As a minimum, you should always include play-pause option for any non-essential element that flickers or moves across the screen. For more information see the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

Thanks. You are right. But is there any way to hide the button?
