Yep. First you should check to see if the Extra Action Bar is listed in the bar listing, when you bring up the bar configuration menu. If not then follow these steps and you should be able to re create it.

1. Open the Ion Bar Config window: Left click on the ION icon, then right click on any bar.
2. Check to see if you have a "Extra Action Bar 1" in the list of bar names in the Ion menu. If so skip to step 7
3. If you do not see that bar type this command: "/ion create extrabar".
4. A new bar should appear, right click on it while still in the Bar Config Mode
5. With the bar selected type this command: "/ion vis extrabar 0 hide"
6. The following should be printed in the chat window:

0: No Extra Bar - Hide

1: Extra Bar - Show

This sets the bar to only show if there is a ability associated with it.
7. With the Ion Bar Config open and the "Extra Action Bar" selected, click on the right arrow to set the button Count to 1.

This should allow you to now use the Extra Action options when available. If the Extra Bar does not hide after leaving the config mode, try reloading/relogging and it should be hidden until active.

Okay, I JUST figured it out. Somehow the issue was Masque. I didn't think a skinning addon could do something like this, but here we are...

Sorry to hear that Ion is giving you problems. One of the recent updates added the use of profiles which sounds like might be causing the issues. I'd recommend deleting the Ion.lua file in the main SavedVariables directory as that is what now stores the character bar info and may be what is causing the problems. Once you do this, with luck it should start working correctly again.

As far back as I can remember that's been an issue, dating back to at least the Macaroon days. Sometimes it works, significantly more often than not it doesn't and I've never figured out a workaround of any sort. I'm long used to just going into the spell book to change the autocast status of pet abilities. While it would be nice if it was fixed, the longevity of that issue leads me to believe it probably won't be.

Hi, I deleted the bar and recreated it and it still appears on all of my chars. I turned on the auto hide feature and it's gone. I haven't gotten a pet on my druid yet to see if it appears when I actually have a pet. Will let you know.

EDIT: I tried this on my warlock. If I hide the bar it only appears if I hover over it. As I said, the pet bar appears with all my characters on different accounts and it's always visible, pet or no pet.

I captured this image from my blood DK. The auto-hide option is not selected.

@kulbaen: I'll look into the hight CPU issue. It can probably be a bit CPU intensive due to constantly needing to check for cool downs and such. Also another cuplrate can be that it uses a bunch of ACE libraries, so if it is the first addon to load the libraries then any other addon that uses those libraries will show under ION in the usage monitor. You may want to try running the monitor with only ION enabled and see if it is still showing such a high CPU usage.

Maybe I am using incorrect terminology. Does any one know a script/addon/etc. that would allow me to anchor an ION bar to my target frame (parent)?
This used to be built into Trinity/Macaroon.
cheers
I appears that that functionality is not currently in Ion, but I shall add it to the list of additions that I would like to make.

As for another addon to do what you are asking, you may want to try King Kong Frame Fader. I haven't actually tried it out, but it appears that it may do what you want.
Thank you, kind sir. I will try that addon, until the functionality is built into Ion.

Great to hear from you, man! I hope things are going well for you and you get some fun time in soon. Still by far the best Addon I've used even since the Trinity days. SLOKnightfall has been absolutely amazing and thank you for allowing him the trust to continue with the extra access. You are missed!
