Can't remove plugins from "Manage Plugins" in CC app

I can justify in my mind that Adobe on the back end would want to keep a log of the plugins someone may have at least tried to better understand what tools would meet that persons needs. But that can surely be a log file stored somewhere out of sight on the Adobe servers.

 

As for the average dedicated consumer of Adobe CC products, I think I speak for many of us in saying that we are a bit... obsessive to borderline demented about meticulously curating our assets and resoures.

 

I installed a plugin to connect to cloud resources, immediately found out it didn't meet my needs, found a better plugin, uninstalled 15 minutes later. 4 years now I see that plugin everytime I go in to do an update.

 

Installed a plugin for Punch and Roll in Audition, a month later Audition updated and had Punch and Roll natively. Installed a notepad plugin, realized it wasn't even a notes panel within the software, just a windows notepad luancher. 3 years later I still have cluttering up my "manage plugins" window.

It's maddening. It makes me hesitant to try other plugins that I may not like and be forever stuck with sitting there in my panel gathering dust. I've seen multiple complaints from other users that they are unable to get rid of plugins that are no longer even compatible with new versions of the software.

 

Us creators are a neurotic people. This is neglicence bordering on cruelty.

 

Ok... maybe that last statement is a bit much lol. But it seems likea no brainer to me. The "correct answer" to all that I've seen asking about this issue is pretty much a non-answer of "that's how it works. case closed." As if to say, "It's not broken or anything. It's stupid and frustrating on purpose! glad we could help resolve this for you."

 

If I can see the option to remove plugins from our Manage Plugins menu by years end, I will feel like I made a notable positive impact on this community. To me, it seems like an oversight. I don't even understand the logic of it being necessary.

in the future, to find the best place to post your message, use the list here, https://community.adobe.com/

p.s. i don't think the adobe website, and forums in particular, are easy to navigate, so don't spend a lot of time searching that forum list. do your best and we'll move the post (like this one has already been moved) if it helps you get responses.

that's a link to a different forum that the one where i found your post.  anyway, it's certainly understandable how that would occur and there's no need to belabor this.

 

thank you.

Strange. Oh well, I agree. I'm fairly new to using this forum so I'm still getting familiar with the functionality. But thank you. Happy holidays!

Thank you for your feedback. Many of our users actively use the Manage Plugins section on the Plugin marketplace in CCD. We hear valuable feedback from plugin users and developers on how best to help plugin users manage their entitlements and this feedback helps improve the experience.

In October 2023, we introduced a Plugin status filter which allows users to filter the manage plugin results by status of Installed, Uninstalled, Disabled, and Updates available. Have you had a chance to use the filter? This is a great way to filter out results you don't want to see. The filters are sticky so once you set them, we try and persist the choices for the next time you land on the Manage Plugins section. Hope you get a chance to try the filter and please do provide feedback.

Thanks again for your interest in CC Plugins. I hope you acquire and install many new plugins that could help you with your creative workflows.

Avanish

Product Manager, CC Extensibility
