Hi,
i'm new to Mathmap, i've installed all expressions, examined which ones could be useful for me, then removed from the expressions folder (user\.gimp-2.8\mathmap\expressions) those i guess not to use; when i launch gimp i found under filters\generic\mathmap\ all the sub-menus with all the entries, even those removed, while if i use the sub-menu mathmap itself - as you suggest - everything is OK : i found only those expressions names i've selected. What is the reason to continue having the full list? should something be removed from somewhere else?
Many thanks (and thanks for the extra-expressions!)

Did you re-boot your pc. Sometimes I have to do that to clear things that I have deleted. If that doesn't work, I am sure someone will come along with the answer you want.

I suppose the extra menu items are gone now

Anyway i suggest you to avoid to call MM from submenu EXCEPT mathmap/mathmap (is at the very bottom ) because is the only that allow to access to the full interface and at any filter you wish

Yes Pc you are probably right. Here is a screen of it. This is the way I go into MM too.

yes that scrolling all down
If you start MM from there you may confront different filters , and access to tabs and option that are not available in other way

in other word as example you may click Mathmap/mathmap then chose in the filter list Distort/Sphere if you not happy try Map/sphere and Map/sphere with reflex or what else

Instead if you call Mathmap/map/sphere from the menu you may use only that ,or quit
and are other "advanced" option not available, basically no advantages to use that other submenu calls seem there just to confuse

Thanks to everybody.
To Molly: yes, i did restart my PC: unwanted sub-menus and entries were and are still there (obviously unusable, because if you call one of those the expression is not in).
To PC: yes, i will use always the last entry, both because it's more flexible and because there are only my selected expressions listed.
But...my curiosity is still there: from where does gimp (and/or mathmap) take the unavailable entries?

I think if you have deleted those entries from your user folder, then they are no longer available for call up from MM.

Hi Molly, i know the deleted entries are no more available for call up (i wrote that in my previous msg), but: do you have an idea why they still show up? if you have my environment (win 7 32 bits) you may try by yourself: take a complete sub-menu out from the expressions folder, for instance "colors", then restart gimp and you will still see "colors" in the sub-menus list of generic\mathmap...

Post Scriptum : GOOD NEWS!
Molly, i found the solution: i deleted the "pluginrc" file from my .gimp-2.8 folder and now i see only my selected entries!
Maybe this info can be useful for somebody else who adjust plugin list of possibilities...
