Move plugins to it's own menu

Bug Description

It not takes at least 5 clicks to get into plugins and that is before customizing and executing it

1 - screenshot
2 - execute a plugin
3 - click on list to bring up list
4 - click on plugin (or 3-4 could be a click and drag/scroll action)
5 - click to execute
(then customize)

How about moving all the plugin's to their own menu
1 - click on plugin menu
2 - click on plugin name which executes it
(then customize)

Optionally - allow users to add plugins to the toolbar menu so frequently used plugins are one click

Yes, a customizable toolbar to account for many possible toolbar designs has been considered.

I suggested the toolbar as an additional feature - not a replacement for this suggestion. I would not put all plugins on the toolbar so I still think the menu change is an improvement (regardless of the toolbar change)

Changed in shutter:
assignee: nobody → Mario Kemper (Romario) (mario-kemper)
importance: Undecided → Low
milestone: none → 0.89
status: New → Confirmed

Some people hate toolbars and would prefer the plugins in their own menu.
Given that essential functionality can be expected to live in a plugin for many workflows, a "Plugins" main menu bar entry would be reasonable. Burying plugins several clicks deep makes them far less useful, and developing one far less attractive.
