Question Where does calibre store plug-ins on computer?

OS: Mac OS 10.9.4 (Mavericks)

Can someone tell me where calibre stores user-installed plug-ins?

The Mac analog to Windows' "C:\Users\UserNameHere\AppData\Roaming\calibre\plu gins". You could also just search for *.zip .

In the Configuration folder,
: sub directory Plugins

Preferences: Misc... : click the 'Open calibre configuration directory'

Thank you, theducks, you (and eschwartz in another forum) have provided the easy answer for Mac users: Open calibre, from menu go to Preferences > Miscellaneous > Open calibre configuration directory. From there, go to folder plugins.

P.S. I didn't realize eschwartz had already provided the info in another forum. You mobileread participants surprise me with your fast replies.

Please don't cross post the same question.
If you think it is the wrong forum: Please ask (PM) a MOD to MOVE the question and not start another thread with the same.

Answers may take time. None of us are paid to be here. Please give it a time to settle. More than likely, someone will come by that knows the answer.

Will do.

Guilty. I asked this question in another forum as a "by the way..." It was part of a longer post (and an ongoing thread), and I thought it would get lost in the shuffle over there. I sure was wrong.

Answers may take time, you say? I wish all support forums took your kind of time. I'm getting replies to my posts within minutes. I thought that after the first few replies, my original thread would be considered "solved" and forgotten; but I see I needn't have worried about that.

Yep, I move fast. (When I am subscribed to the thread at least.)

FWIW, we will almost definitely answer any question in the original thread, but sometimes we need a little time.

Sometimes we don't.

Threads *never* die. Sometimes to the consternation of the owner.
