Sorry if i missed this issue &/or a fix in a previous post, but there have been so many its hard to keep track. :-)

Thanks again for all ur hard work.
with the latest version 30100.1.4, you can button edit and bind edit while in bar edit mode. so that should be fixed


I should really get in the game again. Haven't played since before patch

I've also had this issue. Loading my "Paladin - Holy" profile takes at least 10 seconds of the entire game being frozen.

That way I don't have to go in and manually save my bar profile every time I change it so that I still have new abilities on my bar after switching to a different spec and back.

Thanks!
I was going to add something similar. The problem is that currently Macaroon is switching the 2 saved profiles, junking any changes you've made to the current one and rolling you back to a previous one. I don't know that you could save a profile properly with the way Macaroon is currently doing it. The only thing I could come up with was either to hook a routine to the save button in profiles to reload the ui which would force a save and would be kind of awkward, or for macaroon to use 2 internal scratch profiles which it maintains the way it used to.

Also, macaroon is failing to load my profile saved list fairly often too. Haven't tracked down why, it may just be Dalaran busyness lagging things up. Anyone else having this problem?

I managed to fix my problem by just clearing out the macaroon saved variables for my druid and starting fresh.

Did you still want a copy of them to see if you can fix the problem b4 i delete them?

Since I didn't get a chance to start active raiding right after patch 3.1 release and didn't want to install newly-updated addons, so I decided to play without any addons for a couple of days.
While making daily quests in Icecrown and Howling Fjord I got some bugs with default vehicle UI. For example in Icecrown switching from "repair mode" to "bombing mode" in "Putting the Hertz: The Valley of Lost Hope" quest didn't work.
In Fjord after finishing daily q and leaving vehicle actionbars locked and didn't swapped back from "vehicle mode", and only UI reloading fixed this issue. So If you're encountering bugs with vehicle UI while having Macaroon - that's probably Blizz fault and not the addons bug.

should I blow out the macaroon files completely and start from scratch?
My main is a spriest and holy off. Try setting up your bars in your main spec and enabling dual spec on those that change. Then saved your profile and activate your secondary spec. That's what I did and it worked perfectly. Pet and vehicle bars setup perfectly as long as I didn't combine them into one. The one thing I wonder about is the snap-to on all the bars fits them close except the xp bar has a decent size gap when snap is enabled. Meh, still got it all setup perfectly though. Thanks for providing a great addon.

I was having a LOT of trouble with profiles screwing up. Basically I got to the point of deleting all my saved variables for macaroon, turning off all the dual spec stuff and just manually switching to another profile, rather then dual spec. Seems ok now. I never figured out what the real problem was though.

Maul,

do you have time to figure out how to connect your addon with Reflux for me?

Reflux is supposed to grab profile data out of an Ace2/3 DB. Doesn't work with your addon. It's also supposed to be able to emulate profiles for addons that don't have profiles.

Reflux links:
wow ace forum thread
Project Page

I think a quick skim of the project page should be enough for you to help me out, hopefully.

I might be slightly less intelligent than average, but I really dont understand what you/maul mean with that. Right now I tried setting it to Possession only, Vehicle only, or both. None works.

I just tried the icecrown tournament. It seems that the tournament mount now uses the pet bar instead of the possesion bar and that seemed to work nicely. The only thing is, when dismounting, my pet re-appears but the pet bar only shows the 6 buttons available for the tournament mount. However, this is easily fixed by dismissing and resummoning the pet (I'm a hunter).

I haven't been able to test any other vehicles (or anything that uses the possesion bar) but it definitely works better than last night.

Thanks Maul, for investing so much time in a great addon!
