Hi,
I agree there should be more choices and we are planning to revise UI and add new features bit later in MM5 Dev stage.

Feature Request: Consolidated extension configuration menu

by TIV73 » Sun Jun 25, 2017 4:19 pm

Currently, there doesn't seem to be a central place to configure installed extensions, so every extension needs to implement its own method via button/menu/etc somewhere on the UI to allow the user to change its properties. Why not add some dedicated section in the options menu, or just a button in the extension menu which then launches the configuration for a given addon?

Of course, it's up to the addon writers need support this, but this way at least a possibility for unified extension settings is given. A sample addon to show the implementation and some basic best practice guidelines would probably make implementing something like that quite painless.
