It's not showing any cooldowns with omniCC on the bars, and I can't seem to find a macaroon specific cooldown setting in my menu.

Cooldowns were one of the last things I was working on in the beta. I did not notice anything strange on live and I logged onto all my characters. Is this with anything specific or just all spells all classes?

shows what I'm after, when a single button is clicked an entirely new bar then pops out, the bar appears to stay up until 1 of the sub bar buttons is pressed or the button that first triggered the pop up bar is pressed again. If I could be directed to how this is achieved it would be most appreciated.
In previous versions of Macaroon, that was Macaroon: Extensions. However, with WoW 4.0 Blizzard introduced a new spell type called a "flyout" spell. This spell type was given to a few classes like mages for consolidation of their teleport spells. Because of that, I integrated Extensions into the main Macaroon addon itself.

The flyout spells can be custom made with the /flyout command Macaroon adds. Previously, you had to learn the sometimes cryptic syntax to get them to work correctly. However, Macaroon 40000.x introduces an option to create a flyout macro via GUI. You will see in-game an option "Create Flyout" when editing buttons.

I hope this answers your question too, Dwargh

Extension gone?

Is the capabilities of Macaroon: Extensions implemented into the new Macaroon main addon? or will all those tweaks be lost?

well, the only change i made when making that fan update was to make the mod show up ingame as up to date. (Lightbright's old version is, well, old, and was showing as an out-of-date mod.)

just letting you know, so you have a better idea what to expect when you start working on the coding.

And here's another one for you: is it possible to create a macro in the Macaroon storage area, and then copy it to a button without actually removing it from the storage area?
Yes! And no. The code to do this is in Macaroon. However, I have not yet decided how to implement the option for the new 4.0 interface. In the previous Macaroon version this was the "Right-drag button copy" option. Basically, if you drag the macro with the right mouse button instead of left, the macro gets copied to the cursor instead of removing it out of the button. However, you have inspired me yet again to add this option to the button storage area. That would be a great place to have it

The only way to get Macaroon to track macro changes in the Blizzard macro interface and re-write a Macaroon macro as the Blizzard macro gets edited is to do some tedious and complicated tracking of which Blizzard macro the Macaroon macro watches. Kinda confusing :P

I suppose the core of perhaps what you want is to be able to edit Blizzard macros using Macaroon's macro editor instead of the Blizzard one. This is an interesting idea that I never thought of. I might make that so
OK. That makes perfect sense.

Actually, I was just looking for a slightly simpler way to edit the macro than switching to button edit mode, then selecting the button and editing the macro there. I'm lazy.

But glad I could (inadvertently) inspire you to look into something new!

On that note: I posted a bug report. I'm not sure if it's actually a bug, but I noticed that if I drag a macro (from the default WoW macro interface) to a Macaroon macro button, that button is converted to a ActionID button.

Cool. Thanks for the details, that clears things up pretty well for me.

I love the way Macaroon handles things, as it's so transparent to the user for the most part. One of the reasons I've been using it since back in the Trinity days.

On that note: I posted a bug report. I'm not sure if it's actually a bug, but I noticed that if I drag a macro (from the default WoW macro interface) to a Macaroon macro button, that button is converted to a ActionID button.

This was with the last 3.3.5 build, but it seems like an error to me. I would've expected a Macaroon Macro button to remain a macro button, and simply take on the macro contained within the WoW macro. Am I wrong?

I ask because my current Macaroon layout (designed specifically to handly my druid, though used on all my toons) has almost all of the actionIDs assigned to buttons I use regularly in one form or another. I'd like to know if I will I be forced to use macro buttons instead in order to have my layout work with dual-spec.

The main reason I stick with actionIDs on my primary bars is that they get saved server-side.

anything else leftover was oldschool and deletable?
Macaroon: Profiles is included with the main Macaroon download. The only one you may want to look into as well is Macaroon: Status Bars, which does the cast/xp/rep bar thing. But other than that, if it does not have a version number of 40000.x then you do not want it and actually those should vanish soon.
