Feature request - Favorites plugins sub menu under effects.


Recommended Posts

Hi Rick

All of us have our favorite plugins/effects we use most of the time.

but each time we want to use our favorite plugins/effects

we must reach them after menus of 100 more we barely use.

can you add

1. under the effects menu a sub menu called "Favorites"

2. the option to mark a plugin/effect as "favorite"

doing so it would make its name show up in the Favorites sub menu

saving the need to go thru all the other menus/sub menus of

plugins or effects.

---

you can also just create under the effects menu a sub menu called "Favorites"

and allow us a way to move/add/ drag/drop our Favorite plugins/effects there.

thank you

Avi

p.s.

can you also add this option the "Adjusments" menu too?

If you're not using them, simply move the plugins to another location. Paint.NET will start faster and you'll have fewer menus to navigate.

well i was thinking about doing so , but i can't figure out which files ,belong to which effect , to be removed from the effects directory and which files to leave there.

Relocate all of them. Find and return those you actually miss. Some are usefully named, some not so.

What I do is have a sub folder in the Effects folder. I call this folder "'temp" (original huh?). Any plugin I'm not using regularly rarely gets flung in there.

Thanks Ego

i have done it , its not so comfortable since i need to close Paint.Net to load/unload a plugin.

which is time consuming. but i guess that's how workarounds work.

Rick

since the work on plugins would be cut from 4.0 and redone in 4.x

here is a small simple work around for my request. (based on Ego answer to me)

under the directory effects, there would be a directory called "Favorites"

all plugins that would be placed there , would be shown under a "Favorites"

sub menu.

this way you would not need to add code to deal with the need to mark plugins or any other

way to say this plugin is Favorite.

just read the plugins from directory called "Favorites" too, and place the names under the sub menu.

thank you

I'm not sure this is not going to work as plugin authors assign a directory when they create the plugin.

Nice idea though.

(i'm sure authors would find a way to deal with it, if this was an option to consider )
