1) Make sure you are completely logged out of the game.

2) Go into your WTF folder for each character and delete the MacaroonXtras.lua file for each character affected.

3) Delete the current installation of Macaroon Xtras. Also, ensure you do not have any outdated versions of any Macaroon supplemental addon installed. The only ones that should be installed are what is currently available for download on this site EXCEPT Macaroon: UI Elements - do NOT install that one, it is outdated right now.

4) Download and install the latest version of Macaroon Xtras.

5) Log in.

If the above does not work, you may need to repeat the above for Macaroon itself.

In that case, I was able to restore most of my profiles since I had backed them up into a different account's WTF folder recently, and had made few changes to them since. This time, however, I've made major overhauls since my last copy and I can't simply restore them. This is the worst bug Macaroon has. Deleting all my profiles is horrible. It'll take literally weeks to reconfigure all my characters' profiles.
by chance if your using windows 7, you could use a "previous" version... if you dont have it turned on, i recommend it.

it saved me some work a few times.

I reverted back to 40000.1 which seems to fix this, however with 40000.1 I also had all my button assignments disappear when I activated my alternate spec :/ - fortunately Alt-F4ing out of wow before this gets saved seems tow ork, so you don't have to lose your buttons if you notice it before you log out.

Not sure if 40000.1.1 fixes that.
I was having this same issue last night did not try reverting tho

I have been using Macaroon since 2008. I love the addon. It's everything I want in a bar addon. I have roughly 2-4 profiles per character, and I have 10 characters on my main account and 10 on my other account. Each profile is configured with a full keyboard layout of binds. The druid and warrior have binds for every form and macros for all these forms. All my dps abilities have "up clicks" and "down clicks" enabled, but my healing abilities do not. Everything is configured for every button.

I just had the most horrifying thing happen to me. "No Saved Profiles". Macaroon ACTUALLY deleted all my profiles.

It'll take literally weeks to reconfigure all my characters' profiles.

If it helps, the profiles file in my other account's WTF folder is 12MB, which seems ridiculously huge for something that just stores some relatively short macros. Maybe Macaroon has bugs writing that file, since it seems to have been multiplying in size over the years, despite not adding anything; just changing macros around.

I would estimate that the profiles file in my main account would have been 25 MB or more before it got deleted.

Please look into this. I don't want it to happen again. Setting up all these profiles takes at least 20 hours of work for me, since I have things set up in a very specific manner to maximize pve and pvp performance.
Wow, I am truly sorry this happened. The profiles part of the addons is largely untouched save for the addition of some confirmation buttons when saving, loading or deleting a profile

I can't really think of anything that would have caused this as the only method of deleting a profile is one by one. I will go over all the code and see if I can find anything where profiles may be deleted inadvertently.

As for the size of the profile data, this is mainly why it is a separate addon and is loaded on demand. Data for a single character can be large and when it is multiplied by several characters and several profiles per character, it is a lot of data.

Also, I noticed that in the latest version of Macaroon, middle-clicking doesn't toggle hidden while in bar edit mode. This is a bug.

Also, "enable Blizzard Vehicle Bar" never works for me. I don't know why. I always have to set up a weird system to enable myself to use the standard 1-9 vehicle abilities while I have some abilities bound to 1, 2, and 4 on a separate bar from abilities bound to 3, 5, 6, etc. While trying to bind the control bar itself from 1-9, it unbinds the other bar, which is really frustrating. How do I work around this cleanly? I've been making both bars control bars and having to have them both switched to showing Control Bar in bar edit mode, then binding them separately. It's weird, and it works, but only if you do everything in the right order. Otherwise, it seems to randomly unbind abilities from the other bar. I just want to use the Blizzard vehicle bar to work around all this hassle, but the Macaroon option for it doesn't do anything.

Current Known Issues-

-Bar editor not always updating properly

-Macro text is not an option to toggle as shown/hidden, an oversight on my part.

-X/Y coordinates no where to be seen - I just did not get to adding them yet. As before, shift-clicking a bar puts it into a mode to change it's position with arrow keys

-The right-drag button copy option is not in yet, again just had no time to get it in yet.

-I am looking into the loot window issue

-There are issues with Blizzard's macro parser where some spells do not work as expected, this is beyond my control atm unfortuantely. Blizzard macros using these spells have the same issue. A quick fix for this is to make a button an action button.

Just and FYI on the above, please use the bug report tracker (the link is on the info page) so I can keep track of them

Re: Right Click Drag Button Copy?

You can copy macros(buttons) by left clicking in the macro edit box and then, without using TAB or ESC, save the macro on another button by just clicking that button.

This is probably an unintended function as you can overwrite your other buttons a bit too easily this way. Could therefore also have been fixed.

Re: Hunter Problems !

Originally posted by BorgkingZero
Hi There,

I can't use my Explosive Trap, Freezing Trap and Ice Trap they are dark in the Bar. When i use them wirh Trap Launcher they work.

Misdirection, Black Arrow, Serpent Sting, Widow Venom and Explosive Shot are always dark in the bar like they have CD ?

Kill Command is complet brocken i cant put it in the bar.

I really need help here^^

Thx
I have been having the same problem on my Hunter alt, but I don't think the problem is Macaroon unless it's some how interfering with the blizzard macro system. Because I made a macro in the blizzard macro UI just to test it, then dragged that blizzard macro to the blizzard action bar and had the same problem, the freezing, ice, immoliton, and explosive traps are all unusable but work after you click the trap launcher. The snake trap on the other hand can be dropped or launched. The 4 previously mentioned traps can be dropped though if you just drag the trap from the spell book to the blizzard bar.

So pretty sure this is a blizzard issue as far as macroing certain skills and spells. I have the same problem macroing or using Aimed Shot other then just dragging it to the blizzard bar.
