Plugins in a custom location
Ability to put plugins in a custom location.
It would be incredibly useful for people using source control (like P4), to have the ability to put plugins in a custom location, so they can share it across workspaces. Right now, the problem can be solved with symbolic links, but that's messy and creates a whole mess of potential issues that could be circumvented if the shared location could be referenced directly.
Agreed for this.
It would be immensely handy to have this just be another folder in the custom shelf locations.
One of the things I've heard that might be an issue is plugin versions but I'd honestly say this could be handled by "Make sure you know what you're doing" OR throwing an error that says you've found more than one folder with the same plugin name/version?
Having plugins in the shelf (even if they are hidden on the shelf tab in painter) would be great. We do have our custom shelf versioned anyway.
