I much prefer "easy" install....I can hit the button and go about my business...
and I will rarely uninstall, rather than download each package in go through
the install process 100 times, just for the ability to uninstall?  I can go to the 
VST Folders if I want later and delete them...much easier to me!

But actually it is the easiest way, Zo ...  Going to folder with your VST2, marking all not wanted and DELETE 😜

I am disappointed... Adding scalable GUI for ALL plugins don't require so much effort as they have only few fixed values and are not really scalable (what is ok for me).

So probably the 'hardest'  thing is to prepare 5 different size  pictures sets for all plugins (not that it would be nice to have it in design like license register support/checking etc).

Just few plugins updated with possibility to scale and many still hard to see on smaller screens   😞

Seems so :) I know I am little impatient :)

Every update from PA I am expecting scalable'ish GUI for ALL and completely redesigned cabs loader for ALL amps which is the most terrible ever seen :)

But every little child does know not to use in GUI design such windows control like drop-down list for longer lists. Especially with risk to be longer  than screen height...

It s not so ezsy Piotr , if they didn t had extra pixels at first you need to redo the gui with high res for zoom or you will end up like mc dsp joke ...

I am aware they need to prepare additional 4 sets for every GUI but the rest (like resize, switch picts etc is already in Windows API). 

I assume (maybe I am wrong) they have dedicated person(s) for graphic preparation. It is not so challenging for skilled person even if they didn't predicted it on beginning.

Nowadays not only sound tools are very powerful ;)

Well, maybe it is not bad idea to ask plugin owners for help with graphic files preparation in return for some voucher or so if they lack of men power  ? ;)

I bet there are plenty of very skilled about graphic processing guys between us :)

At one point in life I swore I would never ever get PA plugins. Now I realize I have 24...
(ok, 2 more but they are 32 bit and getting the installers is a pain, I don't use 32 bit plugins anyway).

Anyway I downloaded all the installers, installed one by one, opened Reaper, activated them all with one single action.
Lo and behold it was a GREAT surprise to see almost all of them (23 of them, except Deverb (not Pro or whatever) had a better size, text included.
That all guitar amps could have the cabinet bypassed (although I fear it was always the case?) I wonder if you can use only the cabs. Or just bypass the amps.
And that some could be rescaled (I learned not to say resize, as I just learned with Superior Drummer 3 that you can resize and RESCALE, I just got SD3 in a deal, couldn't be happier) so now Vertigo, Focusrite (was way big), SPL Iron now looks MASSIVE! Yay.
