In previous version of Figma, we were able to easily uninstall the plugins by just right-clicking on the plugin name from the list and clicking on the “Uninstall Plugin” button. Ever since the new update came out, they disabled the Action menu for the plugins. Now, I can’t even uninstall boring/faulty plugins that I installed.
Can anyone please tell me where they hid the Uninstall button so I can remove those plugins?
No, there is still no way to remove a previous used Plugin. Look at my example, I have “Page Organizer” loaded under my Plugins tab yet I do not have it saved. So how tf can I remove it from the drop-down menu?
I don’t ever use plugins but thought I’d try one out today.
I was hit with a screen that said the plugin is in testing and to email the developer for a key. Why is that even allowed in the public repository?
I tried to “uninstall” it but since plugins aReN’t iNsTaLlEd anymore they just sit in my list as if I own and use them or something.
I think ‘uninstall’, ‘remove’, ‘stop running’, and every other destructive action regarding a plugin in the UI are synonymous to the end user in this context. We want it removed from our vision until we add it again.
There’s a psychological aspect at play here as well. When we hit “Run” the plugin seems associated with our file/account forever with no way to remove it, and now it will always be “running” or “taking up resources” because we can’t “stop” it - it’s certainly taking up visual space it doesn’t need to.
The issue isn’t how plugins work now, they seem way more modular and easy to use in a project which is great, but the presentation and management is so poorly thought out.
Figma please keep the Adobe engineers away from your product! XD
Absolutely agree… this is such a confounding, backwards user experience. Simply don’t add plugins I have tried out once (and probably hated) to the main menu for plugins with now way to clean them out except wiping my app preferences with a terminal command. That this is the official “solution” is simply wild.
Thank you for raising this issue. I, too, encounter the same experience. I really want to remove my unused plugins but can’t find anywhere how to remove it. Turns out everyone is experiencing this. I should not have to run terminal command just to delete plugins!
This is really confusing UX. As a user I don’t care if plugins are installed or not. I should not be bothered by inner workings of Figma. If a plugin is saved in the Local Storage there still should be an option on UI that clears the plugin from the Local Storage. Figma is for people who don’t necessary need to know what the Local Storage is.
This absolutely makes no sense. Why would anyone want to keep a full list of plugins they dont use? Clearing out the local storage clears all of my plugins. No one asked for this “feature”. A simple (-) worked fine.
This is the first time in my entire IT career where “Downloading + Running” <> Installing. Its saving…
Semantics just because the developers were in a hurry and screwed up the user-experience to hide behind words when they easily could have just kept a list XML or just plain TXT to help users remove unnecessary clutter is ridiculous excuses upon excuses. Its just simply not just bad UX but frustrating non-UX from a software company that should know better.
