I haven't tried this myself but, perhaps it works on an ActionID button. Other than that.. there has to be a macro one can make to swap to a specific gear set in equipment manager. Probably says somewhere on WoWWiki.

For the part of the lost macro, I usually get the same, this is due to the fact that you have to SAVE the profile after any changes (in fact, before the profile loading).

If I well understood, Macaroon uses currently 3 profiles for your character :

A - spec 1.
B - spec 2.
C - current profile loaded.

So, when you change any setting, this is the C (current profile) that is changed.

But, when you switch your spec, A or B get loaded and replace the content of the C profile.

To be clear, this makes sense in a certain way, but makes me crazy as I spend all my time to change buttons and forgetting them (I have to many toons, and too many bars... xD).

Maul, if you can one day add a setting to ensure that all changes to the current profile are saved on the corresponding profile for spec changes, this would be SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO wonderfull, no more hasle to hit this save profile button / macro xD

EDIT : there is also an enhancement request for this feature Autosave current profile

This is a bug on Blizzard's end when they ***tried*** to fix these spells for the macro system. Even a Blizzard macro on a Blizzard button behaves the same. This affects priest Holy Word: Chastise as well with the Chakra system. The partial good news is that this "fix" did seem to fix hunter traps in macros.

Macaroon actually had a bit of a work-a-round for Sunfire and Chastise, but this last patch broke it.

In that situation, it will still make that button always prioritized reguardless wouldn't it, because with all the pages keybound the same say, it would seem that no matter what stance I'm in, the prioritized button will be activated, or is there a way to conditionalize the priority, depending on the state?

Re: Is it possible for a macro to be too Complicated for Macaroon to sift thru?

It isn't showing me the tooltip, it does the abilities as they are supposed to, but no toolip, but when I copy that macro from macaroon onto blizz's macros and then drag the button to macaroon actionbars its shows the tooltip and all. Also on the button that is dragged down form blizz shows the CD and the 1 build in macaroon doesn't, hopefully this helps to understand the issue above.
I can only answer why the CD shows on a blizz made Macro Button I don't know why a Macaroon Macro Button can't seem to update the tooltip when other conditions are true.

Why the CD shows is because the blizzard Macro Button gets situated to an actionID# and is handled by blizzard and you got CDs shown on Blizzard Buttons in general. A Macaroon Macro Button however is not situated to an ActionID button and doesn't get handled by the blizzard gui, it just sends the macro as if you should have typed it in to the chat frame. So even though Blizzard handles the actual macro on both buttons Macaroon handles the actual button on a Macaroon Macro button but not the blizzard one.

I had an issue some weeks ago, or so, where I tried out some things on my druid. Suddenly some of my Macaroon buttons returned a ?. I looked around on the buttons and found that the buttons that were changed was buttons where I had dragged the spell from the spell book and gotten #autowrite <macro> in them.. they had shifted from
/cast <spell>() to /cast <spell>(autowrite) which rendered them unusable as there were no (autowrite) criteria for the spell.
I changed all buttons back to /cast <spell>() and it worked fine.

Perhaps it has something to do with this?

Somehow I can enable a stealth mode like in the old fashion, but it won't react on shadowdance).

mh.. sry, for that maybe stupid question.
Shadowdance is [stance:3] If you just make your main bar a stance bar you should get another state for Shadowdance. Don't forget to add buttons to the state .

As long as macaroon is activated it keeps me from setting individual facades while having bf and raven active everything is alright. Using BF, Bartender4 and Raven works also flawless so it's something with macaroon.

This wouldn't be an issue but Macaroon seems to need an individual facade as it doesn't take the defaults set in Button Facade menu.
After updating Macaroon and refreshing BFs saved variables everything is back working as usual.

From Caster Form, hit the 7 Key cast Healing Touch (that is the displayed bar, displayed spell) Result is a Cast of Healing Touch.

Bottom line it seems like there will be a problem with keybinding, I figured if the state isn't active, teh binds shouldn't be either, therefore I'd have to have each page that is linked to all 5 states of a druid with different binds? How can this be resolved if possible?

Latest 40000.2 is bugged for profiles

Uploaded it, checked my profiles, nothing was there, not even the GUI to create and save a new profile.

Re-downloaded the 400000.1 version and all is back to normal.
