Hi Maul, thanks for a great add-on. I am transitioning over to macaroon but don't use macros as much and if I do they are very simple ones.

I have used the tool to import the trinity bars from macaroon. I was able to make every thing look great but I am having a small issue. I used to use Right Click as my self cast. I do not see this in the options. I made a macro I thought worked but then I realized no matter what mouse button I press, it casts on me.

The right click self cast will still work on my priest and looking at button edit, they seem like they are action bars.

Is there an easy macro or some instructions that will help me with this?

Any help is appreciated and I also apologize if this questions was asked and answered already. I didnt see it.

Thanks. This is the greatest addon mod I've ever used, all the way back from XAB back in vanilla WoW. I've been getting along (unhappily) with Bartender and Bongos and you blow them out of the water. You rock Maul!

I got to say that so far this Mod is super..

I dont know what is causing it. but i know that it is repeatable as it does it to me all the time now. Also, not sure if your aware but when i am in combat I cannot bring up my Char. screen via the char button, but i can bring it up when i hit the "C" button. is that also a bug? or intensional? orther wise this is super great man..
Yup, I was kinda expecting it to happen. Though I finally after 4 years got a new computer where I don't see that hiccup, I had a feeling others might. That is why I already posted 27.2

And 30000.27.3 is on the way...I made some more refinements that I think allows Macaroon to put item charges on custom macro buttons without a performance hit.

Tooltip scanning is always a performance sink hole, and unfortunately that is the only way I can get this done. But changes in 27.2 and 27.3 I have minimized the need to re-scan items.

Re: pet bar....

It always reverts to <no pet> and I have to go into edit mode, click the bar to make it pet again after every encounter so that it works propertly.

How do i make it so that it only shows up when I have a pet? If i set it to autohide, it is always there when i mouse over it and if I set it to hidden, it never shows up when i have a pet I can control.

I've read the faq and it does not work like the way its described or I'm still doing something wrong.
After reading this I logged onto both my hunter and warlock. I called/summoned and dismissed pets several times. I mounted/dismounted several times and even used "stay", went away from the pet until it despawned then re-summoned. I let the pet die, let its corpse despawn, then revived/re-summoned. In all cases the pet bar worked just as expected.

So I am not sure what to say Except maybe create a new bar and make it a pet bar and /mac delete the old one. If you have been using Macaroon over a few versions, it could be that the pet bar you are using is corrupted. Up until 30000.27 I considered Macaroon a beta and that means that sometimes I might do something that changes how a bar works.

If that does not work, the last thing left to do is email me your saved vars so I can load it up and see if anything is going on that is not happening with my setup.

Suggestion: Macaroon and Macaroon Extras

Maul- Just a suggestion: You might want to consider folding Macaroon Extras into the Macaroon download and begin treating them as a single project. Perhaps add some options in the Macaroon main menu to enable/disable individual "extras" elements so that players don't have to do so by managing their addon loading at the character selection screen. The ability to enable/suppress the UI elements which the different Macaroon elements replace using a simple configuration option, such as the "Enable Blizzard Main Bar

Macaroon is doing everything TrinityBars2 was doing for me, and more. It just does it better (usually). You should be very proud of this project. In my opinion, it is far and away the best action bar replacement mod currently available.

Hi, long time Trinity user here, always been a big fan.

First, I too am experiencing the lag whenever an item in my bag moves. Was trying to figure out the source and eventually found it was Macaroon, came here to post about it but I see it has been mentioned already.

The other thing I was wondering if you were planning on re-implementing the "clamp to screen" option Trinity used to have. In Macaroon it is active by default, and I'd be fine with that, but in my opinion the bars are placed too far from the edge of the screen. Ideally the clickable area of the buttons should be used to determine whether a button can move any closer towards the edge of the screen. I feel this way because when I want to click a button placed at the edge, I like to quickly move to the edge of the screen, not having to worry about missing a click because of the few pixels between the button and the edge of the screen. However, this might not be everyone's opinion, so I'd be fine with just being able to remove clamping and manually moving the bar pixel by pixel until its placed correctly, like how I used to do it with Trinity.

Thanks a lot!

charges and performance

Hi Maul and many thanks for this wonderfull addon.

Regarding this message and the related change in the code, I have maybe something to check that this is really the cause of a slowdown. Protractor is an old addon, but a pearl with blizzard code profiling feature.

You can get the addon here :

http://www.wowace.com/projects/protractor/

then,

1 - deactivate all addons except macaroon and protractor
2 - type /protractor profiling. This will reload your ui. Beware to the fact that wow will now be really slower, due to the profiling code running.
3 - feel free to play with /protractor show and to change from memory view to cpu or function view. You will get in detail where wow spend cpu cycles and for how long.
4 - after this, don't forget to type /protractor profiling again, as deactivating the addon without doing this let wow continue profiling, even if you deactivate the addon. This is really slow, as profiling may take up to 50% of cpu cycles on slow computers.

you should see some points where to optimize things, and if this really needed. In my case, this helped a lot to conclude that macaroon (without the latests changes for charges) is really not ressources hungry, even with complex macros/stances and hundred of buttons.

I hope this may help
