    Is it recommended practice to put all or a select group of MBS plugins in your plugins folder?

    If I have MBS plugins included in the plugin folder and I don't reference any of their functions, does it slow down my debug compiles or increase my app size?

    It is recommended to put only the required plugins. This will speed up the Xojo startup and compile time. It will not increase the app size.

    You can only install the plugins you need so the IDE is a bit quicker.

    On a Mac having all those plugins will just slow it down. On Windows, however, there is a DLL limit you will run into. So, bottom line is to use only those plugins you actually need. I keep a minimal set that's common to most projects but occasionally I'll have to add one for a specific project.
