You can unload the add-in without uninstalling it by clicking the "Stop" button when the add-in is selected in the list box on the "Add-Ins" tab of the "Scripts and Add-Ins" dialog.

Unchecking "Run on Startup" causes the add-in not to be loaded in future sessions of Autodesk® Fusion 360™.

Additional Information

I like developing this add-in but I don't know how many people are interested in it and what price is acceptable.

So, for now, it's free.

Please give me the advice on how much you would be willing to pay.
