    Q: InDesign Extension could not be removed from file system when it was removed in Extension Manager

    Xiaoyi Tong Adobe Employee


      <p>All files of an ordinary extension will be removed from file system when this extension is removed in Extension Manager. But InDesign extensions with <tt>"plugin-manager-type"</tt> attribute in mxi file are special. Extension Manager will NOT remove files of this kind of extensions from file system when removing these extensions. Instead, Extension Manager will use other way to tell InDesign not to load these removed extensions when InDesign is launched. If you want to make your InDesign extensions removable, you can just remove <tt>"plugin-manager-type"</tt> attribute from the mxi file when you generate an extension.</p>
