- fixed ChatFrameEditBox issue as reported by ameyaselene. Thanks for the great bug report.

Additionally, if anyone else would additionally be interested in working on maintaining this mod with me, I am looking in to setting NuN up on a repository to allow multiple contributors to work on it. PM me if you want to get involved.

AJ (Adrill of Eonar/US)




Feature-rich, searchable Notes database with many automated features, and additional NuN tooltips for viewing note details.

Make Contact Notes on other Players, or General Notes on anything else.

This AddOn is for making your own custom notes on players, and quests, and items, etc. and does not come with any pre-made notes.
It does provide an Export and Import Feature for sharing of sets of notes, or publishing of note databases.

There is no longer an "Alternative" version of NuN, and the default Modifier keys for creating notes from Container Items and Hyperlinks is now simply "<Alt>-Left Mouse Click". For anyone unhappy with this key-Combo, then they can now specify their own via the NotesUNeed Options frame.

Compatible with Titan via : TitanNotesUNeed

Compatible with LibDataBroker AddOns via : NuN-LDB

Sorry for the late reply - I put my AddOns on 4 web sites, and this is one I check less often, as it just seems quieter.

Firstly, I'm about to release an update, but have not investigated your problem yet.

However, the "Keys not Equal" message was just a debug message that was in the initial release of MapNotes (Fan's Update) v2.00.11200 - if you get the latest version, then you will NOT get that message any more

I'm not sure about your other error, as no one else has reported this problem, but I will try to have a quick look today - I always use NotesUNeed, so MapNotes v2 and NotesUNeed v5 have been happily playing together without any problems all the way through the development of both versions.

Anyway, sorry for the late reply and I'll try to get back to you

Error: Attempt to Call a Nil Value

Every time I load the game after having installed v5 along with MapNotes v2 I get the following error:

Error: Attempt to call a Nill Value
File: Interface\AddOns\MapNotes\MapNotes.lue
Line: 213
Count: Infinite

Does this have anything to do with NuN or is this specifically a MapNotes problem? Any help would be highly appreciated. Thank you.

EDIT: I'm also getting a "Keys Not Equal..." error every now and then and can't figure it out. This error doesn't report in the Advanced Error Reporting box but rather in the chat box. It repeats it self several time every minute once it starts.

BTW, I'm using Cosmos with the included AlphaMap as well as the Fan Update for MapNotes and NotesUNeed. I was using Magellan but have disabled that in an attempt to narrow down the problem.

Any help would be highly appreciated. Thank you kindly.

Changes in v5.00.11200 from v4.53.11100 - MAJOR RELEASE

BACKUP & RESTORE FUNCTIONS
==========================
- added new "Backup" and "Restore" options. This functionality is kept under a second AddOn/folder name of "NotesUNeed_Backup", which allows it to be Load On Demand. See the 'Backup and Restore Functionality' section of the Readme.txt file for more details.


IMPORT & EXPORT FUNCTIONS
==========================
- New Export button available on the Notes Search/Browser frame. So search for the notes you want to Export, so that they appear in this frame, and then click on Export. You will be prompted for a name to call the record set you are exporting. Confirm export of the records, and you will be informed of how many notes were exported in the Chat window.
The exported records will be recorded in the file NotesUNeed_Export.lua, in the same SavedVariables folder as your normal NotesUNeed.lua database file.
Once you have created a set of records, then the Export button can ONLY be used to add more notes to that record set.
If you want to delete the records you have exported and create a completely new record set with a different name, then you must use the Slash command "/purgeexport". This clears the NotesUNeed_Export.lua file in the saved variables directory, and you can then use the Export button to create differently named sets of exported notes. (Obviously if you want to save a set of exported records, then you must take a physical copy of the NotesUNeed_Export.lua file, before using the "/purgeexport" command.)
The Export function is kept under a second AddOn/folder name of "NotesUNeed_Export", and is Load On Demand.

- In order for another user to Import the notes you created, they need to copy your NotesUNeed_Export.lua file in to the NotesUNeed AddOn folder on their computer. (i.e. NOT their SavedVariables folder). In order to do this, they will have to replace the existing NotesUNeed_Export.lua file that already exists in their AddOn's folder. i.e. \WoW\Interface\AddOns\NotesUNeed\NotesUNeed_Export.lua

- New Import button available on the Options frame. This will only be available for use if the user has a NotesUNeed_Export.lua file in their AddOn directory which contains notes available for Import. NotesUNeed_Export.lua is blank when you first install NotesUNeed.
When the user clicks on the Import button, they will be prompted with a general name identifying the set of notes available for Import, together with the number of records that will be imported, and will be offered the choice of continuing to Import, or cancelling the action. If they click on Import, then they will receive a message in the chat window informing them of the number of records that were imported.
NOTE: Imported records are all saved at Account Level, and will overwrite any notes that already exist with that name.
Please see the Import/Export section of the Readme.txt file for further details

- NOTE : You can't export Contact notes or Quest History. Only General Notes.


GLOBAL FRIEND/IGNORE LISTS AND AUTO-NOTING
==========================================
- Completely re-written the optional Global Friend/Ignore List Maintenance functionality
So for example, when you ignore one person on one Alt, then NotesUNeed will automatically try to ignore that person when you sign in to another Alt. By default NotesUNeed will send a message to the Chat frame informing you of when it is adding/removing Friends/Ignores. New "Silent Mode" option is available, if you wish to suppress the extra messages created when NotesUNeed adjusts your lists.
You may find that NotesUNeed continues to try and adjust a Friend/Ignore when you log in - this is usually caused by trying to ignore someone who is not online, which therefore fails, and NotesUNeed will try again next time you log in. There are several aspects of this issue to consider :
1 - You can use "Silent Mode" so you don't have to see the messages
2 - If you prefer not to use "Silent Mode", so you can keep an eye on what's happening, but you are tired of trying to ignore someone who never seems to be on line, then check the extra Messages NotesUNeed is displaying to see the name of the Player NotesUNeed is trying to ignore, and do one of the following :
a.) sign in to your Alt that IS ignoring the named player, and stop ignoring them
b.) use the new "/nun -i <Player Name>" command to force NotesUNeed to stop trying to ignore the named player
3 - sometimes your NotesUNeed friend and ignore lists can be corrupted by Deleting one of your Alts which had Friends/Ignores that your other Alts were not aware of yet OR when a character on one of your lists is Deleted from the Server, and NotesUNeed keeps trying to refer to them.
In these cases, you will have to use the new "/nun -i <Player Name>" function.
When you use the "/nun -i <Player Name>" option, then if you log in to an Alt that IS ignoring that Player, NotesUNeed will remove them from that Alt's Ignore list automatically.
Note that just in case your Friends data should become corrupted, there is also a corresponding "/nun -f <Player Name>" function which will force a player to be removed from the NotesUNeed friends list.
If you wish to reset your Friends/Ignore lists to the current Friends/Ignores of the Alt you are currently logged in to, then there is a third slash command option "/nun -resetlists"
If using NotesUNeed to maintain Global Friend/Ignore Lists, then you will be unable to Delete Notes for people on these lists.
(Please note that due to the reasons mentioned earlier, it may be possible that you won't be allowed to delete a note if NotesUNeed thinks they are a Friend or Ignore, even if that person is not currently on your Friend / Ignore list - use the "/nun -i..." or "/nun -f..." slash commands to correct if needed)

- Changed the functionality of the "Auto-create note when Adding Friends/Ignores" option. It will no longer ensure that ALL your Friends and Ignores have notes, and will only do what it says, which is to make sure a note exists for an individual when you add them as a friend or ignore.
This option is mandatory if you are using the new option to use NotesUNeed to maintain global Friend/Ignore lists. This option will be automatically checked if you use NotesUNeed to maintain global Friend/Ignore lists, and you will be unable to un-check it.


CHANGE TO AUTO-LEVEL-UP NOTING
==============================
- if you have turned on the ability to auto-create notes for your own character, then when you level up, NotesUNeed will create a new General style note with a name based on your character's name and the level they have reached. For example, if you have a character called "Bigbadguy" and you have just reached level 52, then NotesUNeed will create a note called "Bigbadguy 51 - 52", and this note will contain the date and time when you levelled, plus your characters location on the map, and the Stat increases that they have been rewarded with for reaching that level.


MISCALLANEOUS
=============
- compatibility update to support upcoming release of "MapNotes (Fan's Update)"
MapNotes (Fan's Update) supports the making of notes on Atlas and/or AlphaMap Instance/Battleground/World Boss maps, plus movable notes, search feature, bug fixes and more.

- Hyperlinks pasted in to notes will now be inserted at the Cursor position, rather than added to the end of the note

- Improved support for Enchant Links in the text. Note that you can create Enchant notes, or past Enchant links in to your notes by Shift-Alt clicking on the Enchant Links within the Chat Frame. Enchant Links will now be copied to the chat frame when you use the "[]" (Hyperlinks) button in the top right of General Note frames; And Enchant Links should now Transmit properly to other users when you send them notes. Note that as part of the changes to support Enchant hyperlinks, all links are now transmitted to other users on seperate lines.
(Sorry, no support for directly pasting from the Enchant frame, but you can Shift click Links in to the Chat frame, and then Alt-Shift click the link in to NotesUNeed notes)

- Fixed a bug when searching Player notes by Class or Profession

- automatic creation of Party Notes is now suppressed when in Battlegrounds, as many if not all BG players (in AV especially) will be from different Realms.

- prevent the creation of Contact notes with the name "Unknown" (or localised equivalent)

- Added a 'Mass Delete' button to the Note Browser frame, so you can search/filter for notes you want to delete, and remove them more easily

- Change to the auto-Map Noting of Quest NPCs to ensure more reliable recording

Re: Re: WoW Crashes

I have FINALLY managed to find a solution to the crash on exit bug

I have also finally proved it is a WoW bug, and not a NotesUNeed bug, as 'problem' notes can be copied in to other note taking AddOns and they will crash too...

I will be releasing v2.50.11100 in the next couple of days which has the fix for this problem and a lot of other updates/enhancements/fixes.

Excellent Addon mate. One of the best I have seen... when it uses Mapnotes its leet as!

I only have one problem when I say click on someone in my Party and they rollover the partymember either literlly standing right in front of me or on the target bar for that player, it will give me an error message.

Don't have the error message on me at the moment but I can get it for you if need be.

Contact me if you require any testing or help making the plugin etc... I wanna see this plugin stay becuase it is a BIG help.

Cheers
