Description of issue
According to the new protocols for add-ons, certain add-ons need more actions from the user than simple activation, before they do anything. This is an excerpt from the pie menu example:
- With Pie menus, First you activate the addon & nothing happens!
- You need to expand the Addons Preferences.
- From here you can individually activate the menus you like to use.
This is bad UI design, as it requires the user to know that activating the add-on does nothing. Blender also requires them to click a button that doesn't appear any different than before (and thus doesn't visually indicate there is something else to see there now).
Automatically opening the add-on's preferences panel when it is activated would help a lot. At least this allows the user to see that there are options to inspect, and possibly activate.
