thing is, it sounds like to me, macaroon could be what you might be looking for after all, if you were you leave bartender4 altogether and just use macaroon for any actionbar and macro things you may need.

like Lightbright said, macaroon has unlimited space for macros, not counting your computer's limitations.

the really cool part is, you can create a separate profile for each mode you are planning on being in. IE, you can have a profile for holyPvE, another one for retPvE, and so on.

but, before you switch out of bartender4 altogether, ( if you think you might do that at all, ) i would first suggest telling us all the features you are getting from bartender4, so we can tell you how to get those features from macaroon. if that's ok to ask, that is.

(like with DTK tharon'ja last boss skeleton form)

With vehicle bar it goes like this:
1st spec = works normally when mounting
2nd spec = works after I edited the buttons to be pet bar buttons instead of blizz bar buttons, like they are in 1st spec


edit:
Yes, this happens on all my characters and I have tried recreating, macro master etc solve this but that possession bar just doesn't want to work.

Adding about vehicle bar that when speccing 2ndary spec and making the bar, the vehicle leave, vehicle up, and vehicle down buttons doesn't generate when adding buttons to that bar, so I always have to copy pasta the macro code to my secondary spec to get those buttons be visible.
have you tried using a control bar instead of a possession bar or a vehicle bar?

you see, the control bar is an version of bar that does both functions, and is closer to the way the blizz UI works anyway, which results in less bugs from macaroon. in theory at least.

point is, if you have a control bar, then you shouldn't need to worry about having any possession or vehicle bars

nope. reload, relogging, nothing works. i have dual spec chars that the feature works perfectly on, not so for the shaman.

also this patch (for me anyway) broke being able to see the totem bar when enabling the blizzard main menu. finally cracked and got aTotemBar.

make sure when you disable auto switch you're not just doing it on the profile page. there's an option on the main menu to enable dual spec, uncheck that also.

You may find that you can completely replace your Bartender setup with Macaroon, however.

What appealed to me intially was the unlimited macro space. I've spent an hour now and for the life of me have no idea how I cna create amcros and attach them to my current button bar addon (bartender4).

I've tried scrolling through the comments but with over 3000 to look through i'll be honest and tell ya i stopped after the 10th page or so. can anyone give me an idiot-proof as possible step-by-step guide to doing this?

I had this happen once before and ended up having to delete every profile and start over. I can't do that again. Any ideas out there? Are there any other mods out there and maybe are still being supported?

I got so hooked on Trintity and Macaroon that this is killing me.

Also, I do apologize if anyone has already answered this, but I simply do not have the time to look through the 3k+ comments.
I think I noticed something like this even back before WotLK. I never reported it though, but I think I mentioned it to Maul at some point. Don't think there ever was a fix for it.
BTW, these factions you're referring to are they opposite factions?
Like you get increased status toward faction1 and decreased towards faction2?
and it's always the status-decreasing faction that get's selected?
I think that's cos the decreasing of the status happens after the increasing.. and thus selects the status-decreasing faction as it's the last faction to have it's status changed.

Re: Druid Stances

Originally posted by magicgraduate

Usually I have to go through and manually copy each macro and paste them into each button on the new stance bar. Is there an easier method to this or can I disable it changing stances from "caster stance" when I change to just those forms?

Thanks for any help.
The easiest way to copy Macros is to simply use the MacroMaster. Go to the empty macro button and go button edit, as if to write a macro, then klick the MacroMaster bar and you'll see all Macros for any character you got on any realm(if my memory serves me right) Chose the macro you want the button to have and you're done.

I just added a dual spec to one of my toons and cannot get the new profiles saving correctly, either. I recall having to do a lot of trial&error fiddling with a prior toon, saving with new names a couple of times before I could get the correct profiles associated with each spec.
