With the plugin updates, it’s been made incredibly difficult to remove a plugin. There used to be a Manage Plugins under the Figma Icon > Plugins, now that’s gone. I think there was a Manage Plugins under the top Plugins actions on Desktop, now that’s gone. And within the plugin/widget icon, my settings keep going to ‘Recents’ which only have a ‘Run’ option.
Only using the plugin/widget icon, then changing the dropdown to ‘Installed’ then the 3-dot kabob menu seems like the only way. And it’s very difficult to find!
Bring back Manage Plugins or Uninstall at a more easily viewed level, like in the Plugins actions or master Figma actions please!
Thanks for tagging the spots where it is @tank666 . I still find from the Editor Resources (Shift + I) › Plugins › Installed and from the File Browser Profile menu › Plugins very un-intuitive, and difficult ways to find it.
@tank666 I’m not sure where “From the Desktop App (Windows) Additional menu › Plugins › Manage Plugins…” is supposed to be. Is that the Figma icon menu on the desktop app? I don’t see it there on mine (Mac Desktop App)
There used to be an much closer, direct, related option in the top Menu bar > Plugins menu, and Figma icon > Plugins but that’s gone now. I’d propose to bring it back.
Screenshot attached showing expanded menus for Figma icon > Plugins > Installed and Menu bar > Plugins > Installed. Note there’s no manage or uninstall options.
Plugins don’t always work, often they do not deliver what is promised, almost anyone can make one and they often require personal information to be activated. The Figma experience can quickly become a losing battle if it surrenders to the inferiority of obsolete plugins. Is Figma becoming too big and in danger of being the next hated but forcibly used ‘WordPress’ solution? Why make it so difficult to remove a plugin? Why remove the manage plugin option? Why go to the effort of prioritizing makers of plugins over the end-user experience? Is Figma becoming a marketplace for developers? I thought the success of Figma was due to their focus on Designers as the key audience.
More than managing my favorite plugins, I need the basic ability to remove/uninstall plugins from the Top Menu Bar > Plugins, or Figma Toolbar > Plugins. Where it’s obscured away now is very hard to find, use, and very poor UX.
How do I get to Manage Plugins using the Mac Figma application? I’ve tried all the locations mentioned above and still don’t see it. I’m having a lot problems with the Miro plugin and would love to uninstall and reinstall, but I can’t do that.
Thank you! I finally figured out that “installed” and “saved” are now the same thing. My plugins only show in recent area until I “save” them which I didn’t know I had to do. They run from the plugin menu option so why “save” them. The labels don’t make sense and it’s not consistent. Now, if I can just the actual plugin to work properly again.
Well, I can’t speak for the OP, but that’s not how I define “remove”. Personally I expect it to be removed everywhere. I don’t want stuff cluttering the menu, increasing acquisition time (Hick’s Law) and possible mis-clicks.
I just want it gone completely…or at least provide an easy way to clear the recents menu.
I cannot believe how difficult this has been made. Now plugins show up even though they are not installed… Just let me remove the clutter from my recent plugin list easily (which are just tryouts mostly until you find that perfect pluging). I then don’t want advice on how to remove all my settings (including the recent plugins) to fix a UX issue the product itself created. Please fix this problem (which was never a problem before).
