I contacted the dev about an annoying bug in 2.0.2 : not only he answered almost immediately but the bug was eliminated and 2.0.3 was available within an hour !
Wow !
I requested a Print option too, and I support the ~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins request, both woulld be great in th future.

The user interface is not standard and it's also not very "discoverable".
* The buttons on the lower right should also be on the menu.
* Since they bring up a dialog they should be tagged with ellipses...
* The "Delete..." button should be in a contextual menu as well.
* The control to switch views should be visually distinct from a button, perhaps a labeled arrow.
* The animated rotation for Mac OS Software was surprising: simply having more tabs in the tab bar may have been preferable.
* I still can't figure out how to enable or disable a plugin rather than delete it completely. I would expect this to be a button and a contextual menu.

It looks like it could be a very useful tool, once these quirks are ironed out.

Gah, I don't know why I missed the big blue checkboxes next to the items.

WHAT? The user interface is clean and beautiful! I don't understand what you mean by saying it's not very "discoverable." It doesn't get any easier to navigate its feature set.

Not discoverable:

No cue that the button on the lower left will rotate the window.

No indication that the buttons on the lower right will provide a dialog before deleting the selected item.

No menu items to add/delete/activate or deactivate items.

No menu item to select the application sets.

No contextual menus.

With the addition of activating and deactivating capabilities, PlugINCool just got better! BIG thank you to the developer for creating such an excellent gem.

Instead of "Add" and "Remove", how about the more useful "Enable" and "Disable"?
