Can't remove top "Save" button

I want to remove the top "Save" button from the formview of my custom module.

I know that we perform this by setting write/create to false in the XML, which I did and can't figure out why it is still there.

My view:

<record id="view_module_genall_form" model="ir.ui.view">

<field name="name">module.genall.form</field>

<field name="model">module.genall</field>

<field name="arch" type="xml">

<form string="Automatically generate bills" edit="false" create="false" delete="false" write="false">

<button name="generate_all" type="object" string="Generate bills" icon="oe_highlight"/>




The related action:

<record model="ir.actions.act_window" id="action_module_genall">

<field name="name">Automatically generate bills</field>

<field name="res_model">alkivi.genall</field>

<field name="view_type">form</field>

<field name="view_mode">form</field>

<field name="view_id" ref="view_module_genall_form" />


Do you have an idea ? Thanks!

when you click save, does it allow to save or does it throw an error?
