Improved Blizzard UI  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.3.5
by: kaytotes [More]

Known issues can be tracked / submitted HERE.

Improved Blizzard UI is an attempt to improve the World of Warcraft interface by styling frames, implementing additional functionality and restructuring / hiding existing elements.

This has been customized to out of the box be how I personally like my UI set up however there is extensive configuration available in game by using the Escape -> Interface -> Addons menu. This interface is primarily tested at 2560x1400 but should largely work at any resolution.

Ya the window can be moved but think that is actually the best place for it cuz with your UI tahts kinda a dead area and that area is practicly only used during raids and raids wont activate loot window my opinion ofc keep up the good work m8.

Also in my opinion moving the party frames little bit closer to character frame makes it easier for mouseover macros for healers that's just my opinion though.
Well today I learned about the Loot Rolls window... only been playing since TBC. Damn. I'll take a loot at this some time this week. I agree the party frames could be a little closer.

Edit: I just checked. The loot roll window is moveable just by clicking and dragging the window top bar.

Just been doing some testing and haven't noticed an issue with the auto selling junk. Are you using any other addons?

Please could you also provide me with a screenshot of the issue you are having with the loot window as I don't seem to be having the same issue.

I'll take a ganders this weekend if I can. Had a motherboard blowout so fingers crossed the replacement gets here tomorrow.

Edit: Pending update "should" fix this issue.

I can't properly test until I can get an artifact on Live but so far as I'm aware it should be working okay with the exception of this known issue but again I can't test properly until the features are on Live.
