  • %ACTIVATEDPLUGINS% lists all activated plugins
  • %ALLVARIABLES% and %%SHOWPREFERENCE%= list all preference variables
  • System/Macros lists predefined macros

I want a quick way to see all registered macros for activated plugins. e.g.
  • CALC{format}
  • CALENDAR{attributes}
  • COMMENT{attributes}
  • ...

That is, only the macros that call or drive the installed & activate plugins. Not the preference or configuration variables for those plugins.

It's the moral equivalent of listing the new function calls that are added to Perl when a set of libraries are installed.

This needs a feature request.

See FormaliseMacroSpecification, which is required to automatically do anything with a registered macro's arguments - but we could certainly add a macro that at least lists the names of registered macros.
