Tested with macros deleted, Cache renamed, and Ion Disabled. Tooltips seem to be fine on all fronts. Can not find any tooltip errors on any items.

So something in the current build of Ion released for Legion does indeed seem to be causing a fuss.
I had the same problem, until I deleted the macro.cache.old and macro.cache.txt and my WTF folders. Also made sure that macros were deleted on every toon I had. Turns out it was a macro on my druid that I haven't played in ages causing the issue.

Been actively trying to track down the source of the tooltips issue that has been plaguing me and many others. Most recently there has been a lot of information coming out about it being related to outdated macros, and possibly some addons that access those features.

Being that Ion (as far as I know) uses macros to build it's UI. This might be why some have been reporting it as a possible cause.

I've gone through and cleaned out macros. Deleting/Renaming the Cache folder works as a temporary fix. Basically fixing any tooltips for items in my bags. However the tooltip errors keep popping back up for any new items obtained, viewed in mail, void storage, auction house, etc.

So it is quite possible, that if macros are the culprit. Something in Ion is also causing the bug to occur.

Below is a link to a post from a Blue, who also links to a topic with some tips on solving it from the macros interface. But nothing solid about what with macros is causing it yet.

I hopefully should have some free time within the next few days to check for any new changes that need to be made and get an official release done.

I was very reluctant to reconfigure my action bars from the ground up so I made this little addon that helps you migrate your old buttons to the new multi spec configuration. Worked fine for me. No guarantees though

Just wanted to say thanks for updating the addon. I've been using it since it was named Trinity Bars... This is easily the best addon I've been using over the years.

Let me know if there any way to support you guys !

Re: Re: Re: Re: Huuuuge performancedrop with Ion enabled in 7.0.3

And it's appreciated. Didn't mean to complain just wasn't aware until i actually checked

I think that even on live this was like this before also with the old version too. Not sure if it's related but putting it out there.

Bartender is a bit too limited for me with only 10 bars with 12 buttons each :/ And it's extremely clunky and lacking functions I use ion for button skinning with masque, free 'unlimited' button placement and hiding the blizzard button frame (naturally)

Been using this addon and it's predecessors since burning crusade, so it's hard to abandon it's few features i use it for, even though it has become very bloated and heavy since it turned to Ion i think bene having performance issues all WoD with ion active, but never this severe.

/Holo
Part of the reason why ION uses up so much memory is that it builds all the bars and buttons from scratch. Bartender and most the other bar addons reuse the default game buttons which means that they can get information about the button directly from the game, this is also why a those addons are limited to a set number of buttons. While previous incarnations of ION (Trinity Bars, Macacroon) did make use of some of the default buttons, the current version creates a new macro for each button and therefore needs a more overhead to monitor everything (spell range, cool downs, charges, ect). It may be possible to reduce the memory used, that is a long term project which is on my list of things to do. I did not originally write ION so I'm learning as I go and doing what I can with my limited free time.

Well I've tested multiple times now with only Ion enabled and it keeps happening consistently. With Ion disabled and only using other addons I have no issues.

Re: Legion Update Available

Ok. I just finished the fist pass of updating Ion to work in Legion. Most of the obvious bugs have been fixed and the bars set to "dual" spec have been updated to handle the additional specs available. The one caveat to this is if you are copying over character data from the live server. Currently the system does not store what spec you are actually in, just weather the game says your are in the primary or secondary spec. So your bars may not actually line up. I am currently looking into how I can update the current live version to capture actual spec info so when the game is updated Ion can map current bar settings to the proper spec.

The Beta branch can be found at:
https://github.com/SLOKnightfall/Ion/archive/Legion.zip

If you find bugs or things that need to be updated feel free to post here or make a bug report. If you do make a bug report select "Misc" for the interface selection as while I'm able to make updates to Ion WoWInterface does not give me the option to get bugs for it.

Cheers.
Is this working for Legion now? The game isn't seeing it for some reason.

Edit: I didn't have the folders in the right place =) It's mostly working but I'm getting an error over the Draenor ability bar from time to time.
