Error with Ion

So ive downloaded and tried version 3, 4 and 5 and all are giving me the same issue. I loved macaroon and am sad to see it gone, as it worked very well. Back to the point.

Everytime I start wow I am able to see Ions new button bars. I shift click on the minimap symbol, or type /ion menu and the in game menu that pops up is a blank black box. How do i get the menu to show up? Secondly, my bag bar is completely gone and im not sure how to bring it back on the screen. I have all the Ion addons for menu bar, pet, status and mmg. Please help.

Maul Luv your work. been around since trinity and never looked back.

this addon is copyright? cant a expert take it and make these little improvents, to add profiles and fix the new buttons? u guys heard about this word, help? THANKS

anyway i heard Maul ill upgrade it, right? but if not, please tell us if this addon is stoped or not, so we move to other addons, because is a pain for 1 year now. I know the other stupid bars addons and dont like them, thanks for this.
sry my english
We try to make your life easy but i guess if you want to make it more complicated its up to you. Key binds IMO should be setup so its most comfortable to use your buttons on your keyboard so that should not be dependent on your char,spec or even game just your hands position on keyboard and whats easiest way to press buttons on it for you.
Extra button on Ji-kun work just fine for me and i believe it was fixed long time ago by Ion authors.
I probably play more char and specs then you and ofc profiles is something i miss a lot as well ,but even for that i think there was some post that told you how to change it so Ion settings are per char but at that time Maul wanted to go with his own solution or something,but didnt manage to implement it yet.

Thanks
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.
sorry lol? each char or even spec have different bars... cant put same keybinds on all chars and spec oblioviously
lol no wonder you have so much problems if you need to come up with with new keybinds for each and every new spec you play
tbh keybinds should be about what buttons you are most comfortable to press on your keyboard and easiest-just customize your specs(position of your spells to keybinds) to keybinds not your keybinds to your specs

Right now I drag the macro from Blizzards macro window to a key. The macrotext is then copied into Ion. But Ion wont accept any changes I make to the macrotext.
If I need any changes to the macrotext I have to do it in the Blizzard macro window and copy it again to Ion.

This used to be a wonderfull flexible addon by the way
Just so you know, the targetNearestDistance command was removed a long time ago. During WotLK I believe. That's doing nothing for you that is any different than hitting tab.

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.
