I am a developer working on scanning software which provides a Gimp
plugin interface. As of Gimp 2.6, our plugin is placed in the wrong
location in the menu, and is grayed out until the user creates or opens
a new document.
I have been unable to find any up to date documentation or anything
documenting the changes to the plugin API for 2.6.
I have been able to figure out how to place the menu entry under the
File->Create menu (used to be Acquire) by looking at the code to the
screenshot plugin. However, I still have the problem that my menu entry
is grayed out until a new document is created or opened.
I don't quite fancy trying to figure this out by trial and error, so I
thought I'd post here to see if anyone happens to know how to fix this.
As a sidenote I was wondering why the screenshot plugin defines its menu
entry as "<Image>/File/Create/Acquire", but the menu entry shows up as
File->Create->Screenshot. Why is the extra "Acquire" there?
Thanks in advance.
