NotesUNeed v6.63.33500 - Adrill of Eonar (US)
Originally created by Telic of Dragonblight (EU)
___________________________________________________

- 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
http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/titannotesuneed.aspx

Compatible with LibDataBroker AddOns via : NuN-LDB
http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info13550-NuN-LDBLibDataBrokerAddonforNotesUNeed.html


Below is a summary of NotesUNeed functionality, but you should read the Readme.txt file for much more detailed discussion on these subjects.

This frame can be moved by dragging the small border surrounding the buttons, and can be hidden if not needed (see slash commands). From left to right the buttons are :
- Options : toggle the NuN Options frame
- Note Browser : toggle the NuN Note Browser frame

b) Right click : Case sensitive search
- filter visible notes from the Options Frame

- a tick indicates a General note is saved at Account level
- hover over a note to see its contents in a Tooltip
- Right-Click to open the sticky NuN PinUp Tooltip
- <Shift>Left-Click to paste the note name in to open chat box
- After filtering and searching to narrow down the visible set of Notes, you can :
a) Mass delete those listed in the browser frame
b) Export listed notes for other players to install and Import

Configure NotesUNeed here, or filter the notes to appear in the Note
Browser frame. For example, to just look at NPC notes, or browse
Quest History for one of your Toons

6.) Backup and Restore functionality to save your database
This functionality is kept in separate LoadOnDemand AddOns to save memory.
Both the Backup and Restore processes will execute a ReloadUI()

7.) Import and Export of notes Databases
Share sets of notes with friends, or publish notes databases as a Plugin
for others to Import

8.) Broadcasting & Sending of NotesUNeed Notes
Broadcast Raid Instructions for Boss enchounters or PvP strategy, or
just your enchant selling menu; Or send formatted notes for other
NotesUNeed users to add to their database.

NO!!!! How am I supposed to keep up my list of people who do me wrong in-game? 50 ignores is not enough!!!

Seriously,though - thanks for the addon man. It was one of my favorites. Good luck to you and I hope Cataclysm is too much for you to resist.

Down to business... anyone have any suggestions for an updated (albeit inferior) replacement?

Goodbye Telic

Telic,

You've made some great addons and you will be sorely missed by all who use them. You were one of a handful of addon authors who were really good about updating your addons and responding to our replies about them.

Thanks so much and best wishes to you.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas.

EDIT: *sniff, NuN broke and I cannot access my notes anymore in game. I am using a text editor now to read the NuN.lua file to dig them all out painstakingly!

Orphaned NuN

NuN

Sorry peeps, but I'm effectively retired.

I have removed the PayPal buttons from WoWInterface, which makes it easy to do - and I am TRYING to remove them from Curse & WoWUI also, which seems to be a lot trickier.

I may come back to WoW some time next year - but probably not...

If anyone wants to take over development then you can e-mail me at the contact e-mail below, and I will cooperate as needed.

Sorry, and thanks for all your support over the years.

An entire month and no reply (actually, almost 3 months from looking at your last reply). Going to guess that this addon has been abandoned.

Is there any way to make the buttons stay put after disabling the addon and then re-enabling it? I really love your addon and advertise it any chance I get, but this little quirk is such a pain to deal with.

I use ACP to make a raiding set of addons that I use... I turn off all addons that do not pertain to raiding, and then turn them all back on when I'm done. Every time I turn your addon back on, it's moved back to the top of my screen. I end up having to completely turn off my entire UI in order to grab and move it because it sits right on top of something else that cannot be moved.

Question - Feature request

Thought it best to make a separate post for this.

When you right-click someone and go into the NuN sub-menu you have like 15 or so (don't know exact count) "labels" we can choose to describe someone. I hardly ever use them, mainly because the names aren't anything I would ever use.

Anyhow, Sure I can probably edit the .lua file and rename them to my liking, but then it would get wiped out on the next NuN update.

Any chance you can let us add/remove our own labels via in-game options?

For one thing I don't need 15+ labels, besides it makes the pop-out tooltip too long for my liking. I just want to add labels like:

1. Dumbass!
2. Annoying
3. Ninja (you have that one)
4. Spammer
5. Gold/level spammer
6. Whiner
7. Cool
8. Fun to hang with

...etc, etc. You get the idea =)

Thanks! I seriously hope you will consider it.

Got this error today

Hello again Telic.

Got this error while I was inspecting someone, rather I right-clicked them and went into the NuN sub-menu and picked top option to make a note for that person.

The note was created, and filled in with the gear etc but also got the error message at same time.

Here it is:

Date: 2009-08-10 14:56:14

EDIT: Got it again, seems every time I use the right-click context menu to create a note by picking a label it gives the error. First it creates the note and fills in most of the info, then it throws the error. It is giving the error after you choose one of the labels to give someone and in the note that is created, it's not populated automatically.

Telic,

Appreciate your keeping NuN at least functional.

It really has become one of the "must have AddOns", the half day it was off, while testing some other things for our AddOns really made that point clear!

Thank You,

Nikk

Updates...

Sorry but been too busy with real life recently - some things are just more important than WoW

AlphaMap, PartySpotter, and MapNotes should all be compatible as Out of Date addons, although I will eventually release toc updates.

MozzFullWorldMap has an issue with the small Zone Map, and I have fixed and will release the 3.2 version tomorrow.

NotesUNeed sadly is the one I have hardly looked at - but I will probably release the modified version suggested on Curse as an emergency fix at some point.
NuN is basically due a complete re-write... but that will take much longer to accomplish....

3.2 patch causes NuN to redisplay active quest

No notice/activity here, but it's been verified NuN causes the error. A temp fix (actually commenting out a line and forcing a false expression) is outlined over at Curse:
