The Plugin Manager is available from the menu {{man menu|Help ->Plugin Manager}}. Many of the features of the Plugin Manager are intended for developers, and the dialogues described below are those seen by developers. The features for normal users are noted below where they are different.
The Plugin Manager allows you to control how Gramps manages plugins.
