Apparently I was not clear in my question. My AdditionalPluginFolder plugin is only in the native folder as I mentioned earlier. I was asking about all the rest of the plugins. It was unclear which you were advocating: Other plugins just in the Dropbox folder or in both the Dropbox folder and the native folder.

If by "it" you mean the folder setup putting most of my ~1GB of plugins in E:\Dropbox\plugins and identifying that path in AdditionalPluginFolders, then yes. These plugins are the plugins that were originally all in the native plugin folder.

Because of the strangeness of the "working and then not working" problem and the difficulty of troubleshooting it, I've decided to abandon trying to use AdditionalPluginFolders and go ahead and have each computer with its own native plugin folder and go back to trying to keep them both up to date (probably by synchronizing the folders after changes).

Thank you for taking the time to help.

To summarize:

- AdditionalPluginFolders --> SU native Sketchup plugin directory
- plugins --> either in Box folder or in SU native Sketchup plugin directory but not both.

Note however that most plugins won't load twice, even if they are in the two directories.
