Disable Plugins

I can't disable any optional User Interface Action plugins

Is this a known limitation, is it just me, or is it a defect

I have a vague recollection that I did disable all optional plugins at one time.

I can disable Metadata Source plugins

The CLI for the GUI has a No Plugin option

Code:
calibre --ignore-plugins
Ignore custom plugins, useful if you installed a plugin that is preventing calibre from starting

I only wanted to disable one plugin - not all of them

It threw an error, and so do all the User Interface Action PI's.

Has this always been so ?

That's what I did - AFAIK that is the only place you can disable plugins

Probably because it is the kind that requires a Restart when installed
IMHO the button should be disabled when selected rather than throw an error...More friendly
IMHO the same should happen for plugins that don.t allow configuration: Context sensitivity, not throw an error/warning.

All I want to know is

is this an error,
is it a known limitation, or
is it unique to me

Are you able to disable any User Interface Action plugins - simple yes/no please <sigh>

Thanks PeterT - has that always been so?

I have a vague memory of disabling them in the past, but my clear memory is often wrong so...

I'm not sure; I don't think I had ever tried to disable them before. Sorry!

The only ones I have disabled recently are the ones we can't discuss and some device output drivers.

I get the same message for User Interface Action

Looking in the source for calibre, disabling UI actions is disallowed by default.

User interface plugins cannot be disabled, unless the plugin author explicitly marks them as being disable-able. That has always been so. Other types of plugins, like file type plugins can be disabled by default, unless the plugin author marks them as not being disable-able
