Hm, when setting an extra path for plugins to look up I really think this should go in the preferences dialogif we want to be in the GUI at all. At least it shouldn't be in the plugin manager dialog, IMO.
I think the plugin manager is the most logical place to configure a plugin directory.
I also think so. But when I look at the "Preferences" dialog again, I
It just would make it more bloat especially since setting an additional path for plugin lookup is something most users won't do at all and even if they probably do it only once, therefore I'm pleading for the prefs dialog.
plugin manager itself can be moved there as well. Probably too drastic a change. :-)
Not really a big difference I think. If Enrico's idea is implemented, something like "Directories where plugins are searched are set under the Edit|Preferences|Plugins menu item" added to the notice in the Edit|Preferences|plugin manager window will be helpful.
Maybe. However I'd say this should go into the documentation not the plguin manager dialog itself. Though I don't have a strong opinion on that.
Yes, agreed -- and very well said. I came to geany because it wasn't bloated. That should always be its distinctive feature.
Finally done (sorry for the delay).
The preferences dialog got a new path option to set an additional lookup directory for plugins. HTH.
