I believe all the global options are currently set by /ion; there is no gui config for those few options (like TimerLimit and BlizzBar)

In macaroon you did this by disabling both upclicks and downclicks on the bar config menu. When I tried this the buttons no longer worked, but the bar still grabbed input. Seems like a bug to me.

First of all, do you have Ion-GUI installed and enabled? You won't get visual configuration without it.

Second, do you see the minimap or libDataBroker icon for Ion? It supports left (config) right (edit) and middle (bind) edit-modes.

Third, try "/ion config". Your bars should highlight when you hover over them. Left click to select the bar, then right click to open the configuration pane.

Don't have any bars? Try "/ion create bar" before "/ion config".

They don't care about characters either, do they? I'm guessing not, because I can't figure out how to use different key binds for each character.
OK, so my workaround (for Hydrogen-2 Beta 08-30-12) is a bit ugly and won't be for everyone, but...

First I created bars on one character that would be used for all my characters. My main bar basically covered the lower part of the screen with (60 x 4 = 240) buttons. None of these had bindings.

Then I created a hidden bar that had all the keyboard bindings on it. You could even make it look like the keyboard if you like, though I didn't. This way you have all your bindings and it doesn't really matter where they go or what the bar looks like.

On your regular visible main bar you put an unbinded copy of whatever you would normally create for that character, but without the binding. Unfortunately this has the disadvatage of not displaying the keybind on the button you can see, but hey, if you are keybinding, you probably don't really care...

One reason you would care to see the button, even if you only ever use the keybind is to see the cooldown of the spell (or its special highlighting, or range maybe, quite a lot of reasons I suppose).

For example I have Blink bound to G (for GTFO) on my hidden bindings bar and have a copy of Blink on my visible main bar to check the cooldown.

When you create an Ion macro button by dragging and dropping a Blizzard macro button to it, the Ion macro button will associate with the Blizzard macro from then on and tries to keep it updated, usually when the Blizzard macro window is opened.

Unfortunately, both the inital copy and the updates do not correctly update the icon.

As a workaround, you can just create your own Ion macro button from scratch by just copying and pasting the text only from the Blizzard macro. Obviously this will not update any more as you change the Blizzard macro, but then, I never wanted it that way anyway.

hi

forgive me, but i can not figure out how to change the buttons to action, macro, etc.
when i place a pet or mount on my bars, it's a question mark instead, with the old macaroon this was because i needed to edit the button... i can't figure this out in this version. any help is appreciated. thanks

You'll probably know this, but just in case, I've just noticed that Ion doesn't track spells and abilities that has a stacking amount of uses, such as Conflagrate (2 charges) or Angelic Feathers (3 charges).

Keep the good job Maul can't wait to see an update

Making an Enemy Cast bar

I tried to make an enemy cast bar using the status bar addon but am having trouble. I was able to get it to work fine on the first character I tried, but the rest don't seem to want to allow both a normal cast bar and an enemy cast bar. Each bar is named differently to indicate which is which. Once I go into button edit mode and set the enemy bar to target, the normal cast bar's has changed to target also.

I looked back to see if this was mentioned at all, but didn't see anything. Any thoughts? Again as I mentioned, it does work for the char that I first created the bar on, but not for the others.

Thanks,
Don
