It works in one spec, but not in the other spec.

I'm starting to notice this as well. This didn't happen before 4.1. Now it's randomly occuring on my characters. I have profiles saved so I can just reload it... but it is very annoying.

And you're sure it's not something new Blizz added in the latest patch then?

I'm having buttons that won't act on clicks.

My main action bar is 1 bar with 16 buttons (8 wide by 2 high). The bottom 2 buttons on the far right (say 7 & 8) do not respond to button clicks.

I'm also having issues where it won't save both specs properly. I do not have the dual spec option in the menu options to load different profiles. I do have the dual spec "on" in the bar specific option turned on.

What happens is if I'm in 1 spec and then go to my alternate spec, it'll switch the buttons accordingly. However, when I go back to the first spec, it still has all the button information from the second spec in place.

I was having issues like this before, and I found it was because I had a few profiles saved to have both the menu check mark enabled AND the dual spec bar specific option to all. I completely wiped all Macaroon information and started from scratch to convert to the fewer profiles option.

I have 2 of each class with varying races and specs (IE: 2 shamans, 1 is enhancement and restoration, the other is restoration and elemental). It gets a bit daunting to have to redo roughly 30 - 40 different button layouts with this kind of thing going on.

I really do love Macaroon's in house macro system for things like my healers since I use macros like the below:
Code:
 /cast [@mouseover, help] [help,exists] <Helpful spell>; [harm, exists] <Harmful spell>; [@player] <Helpful spell>
With my healing classes it averages about 8 different macros not including my druid which ends up using closer to 14. Blizzard just needs to give us more macro slots.

Ctrl inop

May or may not be Macaroon, but my Control modifier key no longer functions since 4.1. On a Mac, if that matters.

Does anyone know a similarly awesome addon to replace Macaroon, should it remain unsupported? I can't button-click much longer.

What's the exact error message it's throwing up? I run a lot of addons and Macaroon is one of the few that works 100% without an error so far since 4.1.

Very odd, because I'm not getting a single error from it and it continues to work fine. No framerate issues.

Sadly it looks like it might be dead for good now.

So, what alternatives are people looking at for replacing the functionality Macaroon provides?
