Razoon,
I can think of a few tips / steps that might help you troubleshoot this problem.
I was able to use the general idea of your macro on my rogue using Ion. There seem to be a few minor bugs in macro editing, but there are some workarounds that can be effective.

Step 1: Create a new 1 button action bar in your character's "main spec".
Note : Make sure this new bar's dual spec option is initially unchecked in the bar's General Options for your testing purposes.

Step 2: In the Bar Options, check the "Stance" button.

Step 3: While not in stealth, Drop a spell of your choosing on this new button. Activate stealh and put a different spell in this same button, either sap or blind would work for now.

Step 4: Activate and de-activate stealth. The spell icon / tooltip should change properly here.

Step 5: (Note that there are several ways to do the next few steps, but this way worked fine for me...)
Open up your macro in the Blizzard Macro Interface, select all the text and "control-c" to get it in the buffer.

Step 6: Right-click on the Ion button on the mini-map to get into button edit mode.
For the new 1 button bar you made, make sure the "Stealth" state is highlighted in the left column of the editor. You should be in stealth at this point as well.

Step 7: Delete all the text in the editor box, and "control-v" the buffer text. You should see the macro text from your Blizzard macro in this area now and the icon should show "sap". If this is correct, press the "tab" key. You can set the macro name and hit "tab" again to finish off.

When I used the macro made with these steps on my rogue, when I activated any mod key the icon and tooltip changed from Sap to Blind. I removed the "targetNearestDistance", but I don't think they were causing your issues.

#showtooltip [mod] Blind;Sap
/cleartarget
/targetenemy [noharm][dead]
/cast [mod] Blind
/stopmacro [mod]
/cast [harm,nodead] Sap

I hope my tips helped, please let me know how it turns out.

Same here,5.2 still works,its 5.2.1 and 5.2.2 that dont work for me
I posted a fix over on the OmniCC github site. Hopefully, the authors over there make a new release with the fix.

For those that are handy with editing lua files the fix is posted here https://github.com/tullamods/OmniCC/issues/62

Ion seems to be the cause of my loading screen lockups, if nothing else it by itself causes a moderate delay when loading into the game.

Edit, just ion by itself also seems to cause my lockup.

Edit 2:

Applied kouik patch, seems to be fine. Looks like it got stuck in a nasty loop.

Well don't I feel stupid now. I would have bet anything I was using the most recent version but I downloaded and installed it and now the tooltips are working fine.

On the topic of my UI, the unit frames are Stuf. The shard frame is done with WeakAuras, I use the same setup for multiple classes (Paladin Holy Power, Monk Chi, Rogue/Druid Combo Points, etc) They're colored to match their class of course and I adjust the number/size/spacing based on the class.

Anyone know if there's a way to fix the tooltips of the new way some spells/abilities are handled in MoP? For those that aren't aware, some spells now change to another spell based on your spec such as Rogue's Eviscerate changes to Envenom in Assassination and Warlock's Shadow Bolt changes to Malefic Grasp in Affliction, among others. What happens with Ion is that it will still only show the tooltip of the original spell which, while not a huge deal, is a bit annoying. Here's a screenshot of what I'm talking about:

For everyone lamenting the lack of profiles what's stopping you from creating a bar anywhere on your screen and setting your bindings to it? Edit the buttons on a per characters basis and then set the alpha value of the bar to 0. You'll have an invisible bar that you can customize per character. Sure, it's not profiles but it works amazingly well.

Out of curiosity, why are you changing your keybinds so often? I understand switching characters, and maybe a big of changing around on a spec change, but why?

Personally I set up the bars and keybindings the same for each character. I honestly don't understand why you would need to change your keybindings between each character.
Because not everyone plays the same, to avoid having to change keybinds I had to make 120 buttons with all of my keybinds so I didn't have to change them for each character or spec every time.

Curse Client has a new beta out now.
Actually, the new update is to the "Ion: Menu Bar" sub-addon. The main Ion addon, itself, has not yet been updated for 5.2 (as of this writing). So depending on which Ion addon (or sub-addon) is generating that person's errors, it may or may not be fixed with this update. (probably is fixed, but you never know)
