How to recreate a plug-in [message #34882] Thu, 12 July 2007 15:03 Go to next message

Hi everybody,
I have a Problem with a Plug-in that I deleted as it was just some kind of
a test-plug-in, but now I need a Plug-in with the same name and trying to
create that one gives me the error message that i can't create another one
with the same name although the first one is deleted.
I made some investigations and found out that in the library the deleted
Plug-in is still recorded. Is there any possibility to solve this, but not
with another name as we have a naming convention.
thanks in advance.

Mmh, was the delete somehow interrupted? If you can reproduce this, please
file the exact steps as a bug.

To clean up the library (after backing up the file you have right now), I
would manually delete the plugin directory on the file system and open the
library again afterwards. Open the Problems view and check if there are any
errors. If yes, right-click on these errors and select Quick Fix.

Let us know if this helps,
Peter.

Hi Peter
It worked! Great! Thanks for your help!
we were able to create a plug-in with the same name again.
Just one small question is left, does EPF support a change of the plug-in
order in the library window at the top left. My boss wants the plug-in to
be at another place. Sorry that I have to bother you again.
I'm looking forward to your answer.

In EPFC 1.2 plugins are displayed alphabeticaly by name. In addition you
can use a "." notation to create visual groupings of plugins.

For examle, if you create plugins with the following names: A.B.C, A.B.D,
E.B they will be displayed like this now:

A
|--B
|--C
|--D
E
|--B
