Hi there! Is there any way to know which custom plugins/behaviors my project is using?

There's nothing in the editor, but open the .caproj (or save as a folder project first if a .capx) and near the top the "used-plugins" and "used-behaviors" tags list everything the project uses.

What do you need it for? If there's a good reason, I could add an option in the editor.

Thanks ashley!

Im working on my project both at home and at work and my girlfriend is also working on it remotely.(We use dropbox to store the project folder).
At the moment, the usual popup that alerts about the missing plugins has been enough, but in the future I fear Ill loose track of what custom plugins/behaviors are being used(also, some of them may become dated).

I think some form of "Store plugins/behaviors in the project folder" option could be useful, so instead of depending on the plugins locally on your Construct folder you could have them inside your own project folder, making working on teams/updating the plugins easier. ;]
