I use plugins. Nowhere to be found in the new UI, the top menu, the help search, there is no sign of them. Are they well hidden? Do I have to build my own from scratch? This alone defeats the very purpose of using Lr as a tool to speed up your process. Now I have to work more and take more time. Oh well.I'm closing this and going back to Lr Classic. See you in 2 years.

They're not in there yet, but I'll switch this to a feature request. Classic's the right tool for you right now.

Is allowing plugins to work with LR CC Cloud based in the plans? If not, it really cripples the app!

I want to use the Negative Lab Pro plugin to convert scans of negative film into positive but am unable to use this plugin in Lightroom, it's only available on Lightroom Classic. Why Adobe??! I love the creative cloud and all the other features in the new Lightroom but this ruins my workflow and I don't want to pay for both versions of Lightroom as they are basically the same give or take a few features. A single version of Lightroom with the features of both variants would make everything so much easier...

I have been using LC CC (so I can work on my iMac and / or iPad Pro) for years now and there is still no support for plugins?  I understand that it may be tough to support heavy-weight plugins that require a bunch of local processing power, but there aren't even any plugins for customer distribution / sales platforms to distribute to customers?  I transitioned away from LR Classic a while ago thinking Lightroom CC was the future because it is multi-platform, which brings me great flexibility.  Adobe has fallen very short of my expectations on how the Lightroom CC (not Classic CC) as a product has evolved.  If there isn't a plan for plugin support in the future, please tell us customers so that we can decide if Lightroom CC is still a viable solution.  Years of waiting has really brought me doubts as to if Adobe will actually run with this ball or just drop it.  Please advise on your future vision for this product. Thanks!

Hi Pablo,  just want to report back that Adobe hasn't made a lick of progress on this in the last 3 years, quote sad really.  Multi=platform support is such a good idea too.
