Once a new QGIS plugin is selected and loaded from the "manage and install plugins" toolbar selection, the plugin automatically appears somewhere on QGIS' toolbar panels.

Often, the new plugin icon is grouped with other icons and cannot be separated out from its assigned group, which may not be ideal.

If the default placement position is not the one desired, how is it moved to another location?

  • Would you be able/possible to upgrade to a more recent version of QGIS? – whyzar Dec 20 '16 at 20:22

    do you mean, moving a tool icon from one toolbar to another (e.g. by dragging its icon out of one toolbar into another, or dragging an icon inside its toolbar to change the order of icons ?) – Steven Kay Dec 20 '16 at 21:02
  • @whyzar QGIS 2.19.0 is already the newest (dev) version. – AndreJ Dec 21 '16 at 6:39
  • even though I would prefer a built-in solution for this inconsistent handling of plugins in qgis I suggest using the plugin customize toolbars. – hilpers Dec 21 '16 at 13:59
  • Thank you for your comments. As an example of my dilemma, the plugin "Attribute based Clustering" is installed in a group that contains nine others including "coordinate capture," "DFX importer," "GPS tools," et al. If possible, I would like to move "Attribute based clustering" out of its default group and to another location. Attempts using "customize toolbars" were unfruitful. – Charles Huett Dec 21 '16 at 23:24
