I'm using QGIS 1.7.1 on Windows 7. I want to import a delimited text layer, but that option does not appear in the "plugins" menu. This problem persists, despite the following steps I've taken to remedy it:

  1. Disable then Enable "Add Delimited Text Layer" plugin
  2. Restart QGIS/Restart computer
  3. Uninstall QGIS and GRASS using add/remove programs, then re-install

Is there any way to completely remove all plugins, then re-install and re-enable "Add Delimited Text Layer?"

Thank you


  • The plugin should appear in the 'Plugins' toolbar, not in the menu: right click on the toolbar/menubar then check 'Plugins'

On my computer the add delimited text plugin doesnt add a menu item in the plugins menu, just a button on the Plugins toolbar.

You can go to the View > Toolbars menu and make sure Plugins is checked.

    It should be noted that this option is moved to the Layer toolbar and menu as of version 1.8.
