Thank you Speedy Gonzales,
Are you suggesting that the plugin should have a ‘restore default’ setting in it’s own interface somewhere?
(CE hasn’t for as far as I can tell)
If you are referring to Picard’s ‘restore default’ and ‘restore all defaults’ buttons that are pretty much ‘always there’ at the same location at the bottom, I always hesitated and refrained from using those.
The reason is that it wasn’t clear to me what it ‘restored/removed’ exactly.
Your suggestion made me try it out again.
I didn’t touch ‘restore all defaults’, because I am guessing it resets Picard itself completely?
Or maybe only the panel that you are looking at?
Trying ‘restore defaults’ indeed seems to restore the CE plugin when it is in view.
But it is not only restoring the tab of the plugin that is in view (what I would expect), but it resets the whole plugin.
These are just some observations, trying to understand how this works.
I’ll poke @MetaTunes about this, perhaps he has some ideas or remarks about this too.
Hm, I seem to have missed that these two buttons have pop-up notifications.
The first one indeed restores Picard completely.
So, would it also restore/remove all plugins, their settings, your scripts, etc. etc.?
It’s a bit of an odd location for such a powerful (and potentially damaging) feature, isn’t it?
I would suggest moving that button to ‘general’ in settings with some brief explanation.
And perhaps add a some refinements for what you want to reset exactly?
The second one says ‘reset all settings for current options page’.
In the case of CE, that doesn’t seem true, since it resets the plugin as a whole, not only the current page.
