okay, good to know, then I will remove everything related from the project.

In terms of: everything not in the defaultPlugins() list won’t be loaded, I 
guess. At least I didn’t find any other way to mess around with that. (which 
somehow feels as “the right thing” to me ;))

This still happens, I will try to investigate. I removed all the dirs in the 
sessions directory to have a clean start. When starting KTechLab (the program, 
I’m talking about the whole time ;)), in the Help->Loaded Plugins dialog, 
there are the 2 documentation plugins loaded. (CMake and Qt) I think, that 
shouldn’t happen. Any hints, why this might be? This isn’t importent, yet, so 
I might find some time to have a deeper look into this.

I see. So these aren’t loaded at start-up, so I suspect me doing something not 
right here. I will have a look into that.

I can confirm that. I had a .c file in my test project, when removing it, C++ 
support isn’t loadad. Cool. The C files in a project will only contain C code, 
because they are meant to contain code for microcontrollers. So once there is 
another language plugin, better supporting plain C, this will get loaded 
instead. That sounds perfect to me. :)

Thanks, so far. :)

bye then
