Ok, As always I'll suggest to uncheck SnapTo if you have it checked. That might solve the problem you have with the displacement of your bars. If not, then it must have something to do with some saved variables.

For your teleport/HS problem I have no answer atm. Are there specific buttons that get locked or is it all of you buttons? Instead of logging, have you tried /reloadui ? Does it do the same thing to your design?

Ah, I thought that was the issue. I was saying this because if you look on the photos it has a check box for "Possess" and it wasn't there so I was thinking it was some type of additional addon.

The argent Tourny is a vehicle bar and my blizzard Vehicle bar still pops up so I don't have a problem there, though I'll probably mess with that later as well... What I mean is more like on the Queen fight where when you get the bite and the time is almost up and it replaces you main action bar with just one spell (The bite) till you bite someone else or get MC'd.

I tried linking a bar to the main bar but it doesn't seem to be working. I'll play around with it more. Thanks for your advice though.

EDIT! :

I figured it out, somewhat! As I was reading over the things I can do with macaroon I noticed that the action id's 121 - 132 (As it says in the guide) is the possess states so I managed my buttons to be the id for 121-132 and it worked on prophet in DTK HOWEVERRRRRRRRRRRRRR it appeared AFTER I was out of combat... So basically I need to figure a way out to make them appear in combat and disappear afterwards....
idea! have you tried making the control bar a separate bar from the main normal combat bar? and setting the key bindings for the control state to priority?

if you use this method, the control bar will need at least 2 states, one for when you are controlling, and one for when you are not controlling. for the second state, just make state with no buttons and especially no key bindings.

i could try to describe the way i am using it, but knowing me, it'd be at insane length, so i think it'd probably be better for you to just mess around with different methods.

one last bit of advice, though. if you want to test a control bar setup, the Argent Tournament's mounted dueling stuff is a great way to test a setup without having to go into battle until you are ready.

It's rather annoying and I can't figure out how to make it show this. I've tried damn near everything and the little "Possess" Check box in the edit menu on mine is not there so I can't just click that >< Is there an additional addon that I need to download for this?

Thanks, Kou.

P.S. I love you addon Maul, its the best action bar addon evaaaaaaaaaa! -Rocks out-

Then, could it work with:
[actionbar:1]
[actionbar:2]
[actionbar:3]
[stance]


perhaps? then you should get a paged bar that includes a stance bar.

Might even want to make it [stance:1] according to wowwiki

you kinda need that to enable custom states.

ok, custom states may not be finished yet, but it is finished more than enough to do what you want.

so, just stick the conditional in there, instead of in the macro itself.

As far as the

That does work, but I can't stick a conditional in there.

I tried to read maul's area on Custom States, but it isn't finished yet

then, you just assign the buttons that are in the place where you wanted that macro to be separate macros.

so, the first stance should show the selected icon, and the second stance should cast the greater heal.

if you don't know how to write the macro to show the icon you want, try something like this:

Code:
#show item:29460
just be sure to replace the number there with the item ID of an item that has the same icon as the one you want.

sadly, for some reason, blizz hasn't yet made it possible to show a spell icon by the spell ID number, go figure huh?

anyway, if you need help figuring out how to set up custom states for actionbars, the following page explains how:
http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21617
once you go to that page, just do a search for the word "stance". the first thing that should come up is a quick explanation on stances.

This is because those too buttons are most likely "pet id" buttons. go into button edit, and toggle through clicking the buttons until they are both either set to action ID or Macro
