If you were getting 50mb+ I may be concerned, depending on how many buttons you had on the screen. Macaroon has to do a lot of emulation in Lua to make the macro buttons look, act and feel like regular action buttons and this emulation creates many variables that create memory usage. Action ID based buttons (default UI or a standard bar addon) that have macros on them have the advantage that many tasks are performed in WoW C-side, which is much, much faster than Lua and also does not report it's memory usage to the Lua environment.

To give a bit of reference, take the following macro -

/cast [harm] <spell 1>; [mod:alt] <spell 2>; <spell 3>

I can set that macro to a button object and you can press it and it will work fine. But most players would like the correct icon to show, whether the current spell that is being cast is active, to dim it out if it is not castable, to know which tooltip to set *at the very moment* the condition of the macro changes. All this requires frequent re-scans of which spell is going to be casted based on if the target is friendly or not, whether a modifier key is held down or not, etc.

I always try to make Macaroon as lean as possible. But when you want a Ferarri the last thing you are thinking of is low fuel usage. If you want a bar addon that does everything Macaroon does, minuscule memory usage is not going to happen The only point it becomes a problem is if it impacts FPS drastically, which for most users with average computers Macaroon should not. I know, I have a now out-dated computer by 2 years and I can play fine and raid fine.

Now, could I make Macaroon a bit more efficient and maybe shave off a megabyte. Perhaps, but it would require a complete ground-up re-write, which I do not have the time for. But, if you are at 3mb or at 5mb when the WoW game itself uses an order of magnitude more than that, that re-write would be more an exercise of just wanting to do it, not that it really needs to be done.

There anyway to make the actionbar not be visible when in a vehicle, and to make it so its click through so it ignores all mouse clicks and mouseovers.

Currently using Ovale as an non interactive actionbar, it does it well, but looking at other options.

i understand it wont write any data out. it was just weird since my bars had been created for days, and it overwrote spec 2 with spec 1. instead of leaving spec 2 as spec 2

very odd.

ive switched a few times

it seems to have overwritten them... not sure why or how. but im sure it had to do when the BG crashed

going to restore my config file and pray.

The Escape key used to be sort of a cancel button in pc-world.
In Macaroon 3.x, the macro window merely losing edit focused saved the macro, be it from hitting ESC, TAB or just closing the window. In 4.x, there were issues so I had to explicit make it so that the only way to save a macro was to hit ESC or TAB. So this is no real difference from how Macaroon has been for along time. But you do make a valid point that I really never thought about before.

Using Escape to safe your work is imo not a good idea

Escape is normally the key to abandon anything.
Maybe just use Tab?

Great app btw I love it!

In the default Blizz UI, the possess bar actually replaces your main action bar, it does not swap out with an entire new UI like the Vehicle UI.

This is why Macaroon has two options - possess and vehicle - as the default UI treats them separately. If you want to use Blizzard's possession bar, you need to enable Blizzard's main action bar as well.

Thanks, I would have never found that.

Right, I have not yet tested it in combat. will do.
