Yes, I enabled the Dual Spec in macaroon menu.
Yes, from all accounts, it has been working very well within the beta group. Are you trying out the preview version on the PTR or live?

Ok, but then i don't get why it bothers you that your blizz bar changes buttons.. if you don't even use it.
Unless you mean that having the blizz bar hidden changes the buttons on your macaroon bar?

Did you check what kind of button it is? For example, if it is set to pet:id 1, no amount of dragging and dropping will allow you to put a macro on that button. Try setting it to macro, then doing the same and report back if that fixes it.

Then i can go to /mac menu and click on enable blizz actionbar.. then when it is hidden the buttons have been replaced by some random ones.. then i click on a keybind and a noice sounds and changes the buttons back..

Its really confusing and atm i can only play with blizz' bar shown. i would really much like it to work when it is hidden. Can some of you help me? i am totally lost. [/b]

But I'm quite curious as to why you want your Blizz bar shown at some point when seemingly you can play with it hidden.
Why not just always have the Blizz bar hidden and have a Macaroon bar instead of it?
Well thats exactly the problem. I want the blizz bar to be hidden at all time. But when its hidden it somehow changes the buttons in it under a fight..

Just to clearify, what is the difference between 'Possess' and 'Vehicle' states now?

Does the 'posess' state work for mind control and simmilar abilities, while the 'vehicle' state work for vehicles? Might sound like a stupid question, however, my real question is; If the above is true, then I wonder what actionbutton IDs are used for the posess state abilities? Are they the same as vehicle?

And there's two bugs I'd like to report:
- The pet actionbar switch to vehicle bar even when vehicle is not checked in the state checkbox list
- When both 'posess' and 'vehicle' states are checked in the state checkbox list and you leave a vehicle, the bar turns into 'posess' state instead of 'normal'

I am using the 3.1 preview version of both Macaroon and Extras

This is fine if the button was defined as an actionbar ID to start with, but would it be possible for Macroon to check - If the button is current defined as a macro type instead of actionID type - can it COPY the macro out of the button I'm trying to drop on it and stay in macro mode instead of switching to an actionID?

Just curious if this is possible.

I keep two hidden buttons in the middle of my screen, and when I do a quest like ACES HIGH! (or do maly), I drag my two aces high macros to these buttons... which makes them switch to actionID's instead of macros.. if I then drag a healthstone or fishing button onto one of these later, it changes the actionID assignment instead of changing back to a macroon macro. Ugh. I can't afford to burn any more actual actionID slots.
I will look into this again. I can't remember why right now, but I did have a reason for doing it this way.

However, you can go into the main menu and enable the right-drag copy option. You can set up a hidden bar with your macros, and then right-click-drag those Macaroon macros from that bar to your buttons in the middle. The hidden bar buttons will remain unchanged.

I followed the instructions in the faq's about making a pet/posess bar that works. Although this post helped me in the past...i don't think that it's current and it's no longer working. Is there anyway you or anyone else could help me figure out how to fix this issue and create a bar that works? If so i would be greatly appreciative.

P.s. this is the faq to which i was referring:

http://www.wowinterface.com/portal.p...=faq&faqid=351
If you are using the latest 3.1 preview version, that FAQ is not quite correct, as I added a new "Vehicle" option to the bars.

I do like the vehicle bar however. As it has the leave and aim buttons. To be honest it might work sticking with the posses bar but i would still like a bar with the leave/aim buttons. But that just me and i am wired.

(gonna post this in bugs also)

I have been using that version myself on the live realms. My main intent on releasing it is to see if there are any upgrade issues. It can be used on live and PTR.
