[Feature request] Enable/disable plugin checkbox
It would be nice if there were a checkbox to enable/disable each plugin from the menu. Indeed, some of us have a long list of plugins, that we use relatively rarely. They take a while to load and make the program heavier. By allowing the user to enable/disable the plugins with a checkbox, the user would enable only the plugin he desires at the right time.
To be seen by developers of Notepad++, you must make a feature request in the correct manner; see HERE for info on how that is done.
Your need feels familiar; please look for existing requests of the same nature before creating a brand new one. If you find an existing request, you can add your support to it, and/or point out any differences you’d like to see from what has already been asked for.
This is closely related to different plugins for different unprivileged users w/ one install?. The original poster in that thread created a feature request.
While the situation you describe is simpler, implementing the feature request as suggested would include adding what you want. Take a look at the feature request and add a comment explaining your use case if you feel it is appropriate.
