First of all, I've got to say that Macaroon! is the one reason I'm currently over-thinking the whole way of having most of the add-ons i use share their SavedVariables, because I'd absolutely prefer the way Macaroon! provides those additional ways I've been looking for to combine macros and what some people call stancing and paging, basically to save space in the macros for other things than all the [stance] stuff with my druid, in addition to the very cool fact that it works around the game's built-in limit of having only 18 character-based macros.

That said, I'd like to address the main issue I have integrating Macaroon!.
Since for reasons of convenience all my characters share the same SavedVariables directory using hard links, I can't separate a specific add-on's file from the others, except if I would separately link every single add-on. The actual problem with just sharing the same Macaroon! SV with all characters, is that this would also make all my characters have the same macros. What I'd prefer though would be class-based or at least character-based settings. So what I'm trying to say is that I think Macaroon! needs actual profiles that aren't saved as character-based but as account-based (global) SavedVariables, enabling each character to use the same profile as another character, including just about any setting in Macaroon! there is, so there can be completely different profiles instead of just partly different profiles as it is now. (In other words, this would make setting up characters a lot more comfortable by enabling sharing the exact same profile between e.g. an elemental troll shaman on realm 1 and another elemental draenei shaman on realm 2.)
If there already is a way to exactly do all that, I wasn't able to see it with all chars sharing the same SV, since there's no characters' names or classes being saved in the character-based SV. (I could get along with having to set up every single thing for each class once, but it's pretty hard to copy the settings of one character to another if they're being saved in the character-based SavedVariables, especially when changing one single thing and then having to re-change it again with every other character.)
Most of the add-ons I use either separate some stuff into the character-based SV and the probably more important rest for every character into an account-based default profile - or they just have "global" profiles (which is pretty common among ace-based add-ons), saving everything for every character either in a default, a character- or a class-based profile, which is then reusable by other characters.
Sorry to have repeated some things - just trying to make a bit clearer what I think of, not easy to get it myself.

On a side note, I wasn't able to find out what the 8 sliders at the options panel are good for, as they miss a description and don't seem to have any effect on any of the bars. I guess, that is either because they're unfinished or because they miss a translation or something?
Additionally, I find the buttons on the 'Stored Buttons' option panel are pretty hard to see (dark grey on black) and I also couldn't really get which ones of my buttons should be of those stored buttons, since the buttons on the actually visible bars seem to be completely independent of them (as long as they're macros - and the stored buttons don't seem to include the macros).

Other than that, Macaroon! has been rather easy to set up for me with my main character and I'll eventually find a way to cope with having no real (as in global) character-based profiles, though I'd still think that Macaroon! would greatly profit from them.

Or maybe someone else even has a better idea as for how to automatically share most parts of the SavedVariables directory between characters, without specific files in it getting overwritten/deleted.

Welfare to you, Maul.

Hi Maul, good to see you're back

I hope you recover fast because feeling healthy is so damned important.

There's something I want to ask about the combination of Macaroon and DrDamage: I use an old fashioned (Trinity Bars style) setup for my Macaroon bars with all buttons using Action ID's.
I only use a few simple macro's so I don't need macro functions under each button, have tried it for some time but after some strange issues I went back to the Action ID buttons setup and I'm very happy with the way Macaroon works now, no other action bar addon can be setup that way... it's awesome.

The only small downside when you use Action ID buttons is that the information coming from DrDamage doesn't show up on the buttons like they do on macro buttons.

I hope there's a simple way to change that... if not: Please forget I ever started about this issue, because you better use your energy for more important things at the moment.

Greetings, Chilius

I'm so happy you are back, Maul!
I was feeling like this was an end to a WoW Age.

For a while I had even thought that Blizzard had finally hired you to make their UI.
That would be their best move

Wellcome back

Re: Pet/posess not showing

Originally posted by CyberZombie
I'm sure this has been answered before, but I had no luck getting answers from the faq, official thread, nor google...

I am having issues with the possess and/or pet bar not automatically showing when I mount a vehicle, summon Humar, etc. I summon and nothing appears to happen - I have to click on the Macaroon button to enable changes (and hope I'm not in combat), and cycle through the modes for that bar until I get the actions to show.
Look no further, than a few posts earlier than the one you just made. (If separating your pet bar from your possess bar doesn't help with your problem Phanx seems to have sorted things out.)
Originally posted by Phanx
I use custom state definitions for all of my bars, and have 100% working pet and possess states on any bar by making sure that [bonusbar:5] is always the first state defined. I also include [bonusbar:5] in the same state as [nopet] on my pet bar, since some possessed units are irritatingly defined as both a possess and a pet, and will pop up an extra, usually mostly empty, pet bar if I don't account for this.

So, non-pet bar with possess page:
[bonusbar:5]
[otherstate1]
[otherstate2]

Pet bar with no possess page:
[bonusbar:5] [nopet]
[pet]

Pet bar with possess page:
[bonusbar:5]
[nopet]
[pet]

Defining things in this order when the non-custom state checkboxes are used should fix all of the issues people keep reporting with Malygos, etc.

definitely check your pet bar like deep said above. also as a priest or warrior i'm not sure what you're looking for your pet bar to do. as a priest the ONLY thing that comes up on my pet bar since wotlk is my shadowfiend. everything else goes through the posess bar now, mind control, vehicles, etc.

as for custom states, i've never had the need for them myself, so check the post phanx made a few before your first one and the faq if you'd like to look into that further.

You probably have a data error and may need to delete that character's specific MacaroonXtras saved data -

\WTF\Account\<account name>\<server<\character>\SavedVariables\MacaroonXtras.lua

Backup or delete that file while exited out of WoW and try again on that character.
