I have updated the code of [properties_workspace.py] to sort the list of addons by categories and names as by default, everything is mixed and it is really a mess to find easily the one you want to enable or disable.
Do you think we can include it in blender ?

hi, maybe I’ve misunderstood this but it is possible already to filter add-ons by categories, see: image|523x500
submit Pull Request if you want your fix to be part of blender repo: Tools/Pull Requests - Blender Developer Wiki
sorry I ment in the view panel in 3d viewport, in the tab view > workspace not in parameters
Ah, right. You had already mentioned about
I think you can submit the PR.
@pablovazquez , since you handle the UI, do you think this change is useful?
Alphabetical order is definitely useful! But you know what would be even more useful? If the list used an actual
UIList already has a built-in sort option, plus search, and scrolling for long lists.
Mockup of how it could look:
@chris_scholl Do you want to give this a go?
Edit: Made a design task for it: #111272 - UI: Replace list of workspace add-ons with a UIList - blender - Blender Projects
I think it’s a great idea to clean up the sorting.
It would also be nice if the list (by default) had all in the list “checked”, when you turn on Filter Add Ons. I generally wish to remove a small number (say, 2-4) from a particular layout, not start with “none” and then check mark 40 of them.
For me this is essential to use this list. Or have an option that will enable all the options.
