in Hide when properties,

Try the above. Only persons having Manager role, can view the section.

The formula should compute to a user, group or role.  You can't use negations here.

So if you want to hide it for managers, you must give access to everybody EXCEPT managers (let's suppose you give everybody else the role Plebs)

I want to hide one section from the manager and another section
from all others.

So i make it "[manager]" for the former one
while !"[manager]" for all others.

I only define a role of manager in the ACL and
nth else there.

What if I need to hide the section based on
a field value, lets say field1!= "Yes"?

And why can't negation be used here?

Hide?  Or disable?

To hide:
    @UserRoles = "[Manager]"
    !@UserRoles = "[Manager]"

To disable, compte for display as follows:
    @If(@UserRoles = "[Manager]"; "Managers may not edit this section"; @UserName)
