You're talking about Profile swapping on spec change.
Means you need to have 2 different Profiles saved and then you type the profile names in the two slots.

thing is, i'd say that the mod you want is actually BTex, itself. if i am reading its decription right, you can use it to build your own art/skin/whatever, whereas Elf-Art for Btex seems more like a fully premade skin for BTex.

er, docesam? could you clarify which it is, for us? i'd like to hear it from the horse's mouth, as the saying goes.
Well, his words:
even if i increased the alfa to 1 still i can see what is behind the buttons

so that even if the buttons are empty i can not see anything behind it .

or is it just that you DO want showgrid to show, but not as clearly as it normally does?

what i am looking for is : the button background become completely opaque ( and thus so the entire bar become completely opaque ) so that even if the buttons are empty i can not see anything behind it . but ofc if the button is occupied by a spell you will see that spell icon.

it can make looking for a certain button much faster if the raid environment is fussy

i tried hacking the addon script to change that but no success

thank you

you see, when you drag a spell onto a button that is in macro mode, it will auto-write a really short and simple macro for that spell, in that button.
