But something like auto attack that gets a highlight too, has the proper skin.

And yes, I'm running like 50 addons. Lots of stuff is getting updated right now, so it may just be a coincidence that this just started when I updated Macaroon! Since I probably updated something else around that same time.
I think I know what the problem is then.

Isn't that a bug?
Yup, a bug, which should have been fixed for 40000.1.2, did you update to that version yet?

Bug report it and I will look into it. Thanks

Not a bug, that option turns off that text field for all buttons, be them macro or action....yaarr...

Issue with Button Facade and Macaroon.

Everything was working fine, all bars set up, all the buttons modified by Button Facade nicely. Logged out to ensure all my settings were saved (incase of a server crash / random disconnect).

Logged back in and none of the Button Facades are there. Infact, when i go to Interface > Addons > Button Facade > Addons .... Macaroon is no longer listed in the Button Facade submenu.


Is this a problem with Button Facade or Macaroon? I tried to relog and shut wow down completely, still no change. I am going to reinstall Button Facade to see if that changes anything, will update.


EDIT: Deleted Button Facade and all the saved variables to go with it. Reinstalled with latest alpha, no luck. Reinstalled with latest release of Button Facade, no luck. It seems something from Macaroon is blocking Button Facade from hooking.

No idea what caused this, as it worked fine all yesterday and most of today. No changes were made, simply logged out and back in to find Button Facade no longer working

EDIT 2: Going into the macaroon profiles and loading from there (i had saved Mac Profiles about 30 min earlier), Button Facade is now working again since restoring from my last safed profile.

EDIT 3: I did respec my character before logging out to save my settings. No idea if its related or not, just wanted to be thorough, as that was the only thing that actually changed between all my log outs where Button Facade and Macaroon played nice.
I will look into this. However, if you could make a bug report that will make sure I get to it.

Re: Creating menubars that only show up in certain forms

Originally posted by torin
I was trying to make a bar that only showed up when I was in demon form [form:2] but I couldn't seem to find the right magic. Typing in the box for Custom States didn't seem to take. It would always be blank after I went back.
This is because of the wacky nature of stances for Warlocks. First, make sure you have your "normal" state defined too, which could just be an empty conditional -

[form:2]

Had an interesting oddity happen. one of my buttons was set to be a Action button, and had First Aid on it, but I noticed it had an up arrow like a flyout. so I clicked it to see the flyout and it had a list of trinkets?! every action I put in that space ended up with the same flyout. So I entered button edit mode and changed the button to a macro button and there was a flyout script attached to it! (for trinkets) I exited button edit and drug the button off the bar, then re entered button end to change it back to an action and all is well now.


Oh, and I also looked at making a Totem Flyout for quick access to all Shaman totems in one place and half of them didn't show icons. So for now I deleted it.

I cannot recall, but are you using a non-US client? If so, your flyout issues may be related to the other post I made about the encoding mistake I made.


Any chance we could get a feature to reposition action button tool tips if a flyout covers the tip location? I already use Tipsy to move my tips away from my bars, in to the bottom right just above and right of my bars. (I have kind of an L shape of buttons along the bottom and up the right side.) (been some time since I tested things without it!! maybe I will)
I generally try to leave tooltip positioning up to a tooltip addon and just put it basic anchors that are in line with how Blizzard positions them with their UI objects of the same nature. I will see what I can do, however

I know you must be extremely busy but a well written updated user guide I think would help for little things like this instead of rewriting the code. I know I would really like reading about all the new features that are in macaroon that I can't work out yet.
Maintaining the addon code itself, playing WoW, living a real life and trying to get the documentation done is quite challenging to fit into a 24 hour day A guide/documentation will be forthcoming, it just tends to simmer on the back burner.

On the topic of text on buttons, where is the option to hide macro text? Macros created with the Blizzard system and dragged out on to the bars will show the name of the macro on the bars. I am sure this use to be a global option to turn off and there is nothing in the Blizzard options. Really need this option back in if it is gone please.
This was an oversight on my part and I re-added it. It should now be located in that same elusive area

Finally not as big an issue but I remember reading quite a while back that you were looking in to making the key binding text scalable. I see that you have added colours now but no scale yet?
Text element position and scaling are something I will add, but are lower priority than other things. If you add it as a feature request it will remind me that someone is requesting it as a feature

Keep up the awesome work Maul on the best bar addon ever, I recommend it to everyone and just laugh at others that use that other one that belongs in a PUB. [/b]
Thanks!

Ah, thanks. Was looking for some kind of information on it, but there was none. Not for the Macaroon flyout nor for the one by blizz itself.

Is the blizzard-one working the same way? Or what are the differences?
The Blizzard one is hard-coded on Blizzard's side as to what spells are available for their flyout.



Oh, there "might" still be a problem, because

/flyout item:Ruhestein:...

did not match (which it should, if I'm not mistaken). Any ideas about that? Small bug within localisation code?

Uhm... Ok, at least in the newest version it does work...
This is a "doh!" on my part. When making the new file in Macaroon from the old file in Macaroon: Extensions I forgot to make the file an UTF-8 file. It is currently flagged as an ANSI file. This makes lua files not work quite correctly when dealing with certain characters of languages other than English. I have corrected this on my side, however until I post a new update you can simply open up the Macaroon_Extensions.lua file in a text editor friendly to German and then re-save it making sure to change the encoding to UTF-8.

If you could post this as a bug report that would be great. So far I have not anything yet to cause that. Also, does this happen when only Macaroon, BF and the Trinity skin pack are the only addons enabled?
