NotesUNeed  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v6.63.33500

___________________________________________________

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

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

EQL3

Yeah, I have heard this problem from someone else - NotesUNeed resets the map when you complete quest objectives;
But EQL3 calls the Blizzard function every 3 seconds that only normally gets called when you complete Quest Objectives - not sure why it can't wait for normal calls when objectives are really completed.

Anyway, I have a fix in the next release of NotesUNeed to make sure I only reset the map when a Quest Objective is ACTUALLY completed, and not just when some other AddOn is triggering the function

Changes in v5.46.20003 from v5.45.20000
---------------------------------------

- toc update

- only reset the map when a QuestWatch_Update functions confirm that an objective has been completed, to cater for other AddOns that call the function continuously

- Blizzard's Patch 2.03 should fix all other WoW v2.xx Blocked Action issues

Changes in v5.47.20003 from v5.46.20003

Changes in v5.47.20003 from v5.46.20003

* updated the Race and Profession drop down boxes to include Burning Crusade options

(I've been very lazy and just added the new races/professions after the last entries in the drop down boxes, rathter than re-arranging in alphabetical order - it means I don't have to write a conversion routine to update old notes, or during note exchange between different language clients) NOTE : Sending of Contact style notes to users of older versions of NotesUNeed is unsafe where the Contact references one of the new Races/Professions

Changes in v5.50.20003 from v5.47.20003

Changes in v5.50.20003 from v5.47.20003
-------------------------------------------------

- fixed the Quest Log problems that were broken by a recent Blizzard Patch

- change to MapNotes-NotesUNeed Tooltip Functionality :
Previously there would be delay when displaying the MapNotes-NotesUNeed Popup frame which would prevent it from closing when your mouse leaves the MapNote, therefore allowing you time to click on the NotesUNeed button to open the Note - this delay would also prevent the Popup frame from closing if you moused over another MapNote - this affect was also deliberate to allow the user to access the NotesUNeed button; i.e. the button would disappear if the route of the mouse from the initial MapNote to the NotesUNeed button passed over another MapNote.
Anyway to cut a long story short, I have now changed this functionality. There is still a delay leaving the NotesUNeed buttons available to click when your mouse leaves a MapNote - But the tooltip and NotesUNeed Popup frame will refresh immediately when you mouse over any other MapNote.
If you are having trouble clicking on a NotesUNeed Popup button for one MapNote, because you can't avoid mousing over other MapNotes to get to it - then hold down the <Control> Key, and Mousing over other MapNotes will be suppressed.

- Doh! Forgot to add the Paladin/Shaman classes that are now available to Horde/Alliance respectively

- fixed the NPC Information fetching routine to make sure Professions are fetched correctly
(Note, I have not tested with other GameTooltip Modifications installed - the code still relies on the Profession being recorded on the second line of the Tooltip, so if another AddOn has hidden or moved this information to a different line of the tooltip, then I don't have any plans to address that as a NotesUNeed issue; There could just be too many options for me to cater for given the number of Tooltip AddOns available.)

Sorry

Sorry for late replay - I just don't monitor this site as often as ui.*************** or curse gaming or Cosmos....

If you have Extended QuestLog installed and receive errors at NotesUNeed.lua:8392 then turning on both the EQL options "Show quest levels" and "Only in Log and Tracker" can help.

I will try to look in to what's happening soon... just been busy on a big AlphaMap update...

Changes in v5.55.20003 from v5.50.20003

Changes in v5.55.20003 from v5.50.20003
-------------------------------------------------

- added basic ability to change the font used in Edit Boxes where you type text
Basically, I have supplied an alternative font that can be used in game by Ticking the new "NuN Font" Check Box Option.
The supplied font is the free Vera Sans Mono (True Type) font - a monospaced font that simplifies text allignment e.g. in Script style notes.
If you want to use your own Font when editing notes, then simply copy your font in to the following directory and re-name it to "NuN.ttf"
Interface\AddOns\NotesUNeed\Artwork

- corrected a problem with the Friend/Ignore list functionality when targetting the individual, and now make sure note symbols are updated immediately

- double checks now in place to make sure you can NOT delete Friend/Ignore Notes if using NotesUNeed to automatically maintain Friend/Ignore Lists

Changes in v5.56.20003 from v5.55.20003

Changes in v5.56.20003 from v5.55.20003
-------------------------------------------------

- small change to the behaviour of the MapNotes NotesUNeed Tooltips
The NotesUNeed Popup list of Notes will now disappear immediately when your Mouse leaves a MapNote.
If you want the List to stay Open so that you can view the NotesUNeed Tooltip for individual notes, or Click on the Note to open it, then hold down the <Control> key and the NotesUNeed Popup list of notes will stay open.

- small change to Quest Recording to make sure Notes are created more promptly when accepting quests

- double check to prevent a rare error when logging in with other Quest AddOns installed

inserting Item links

I've been racking my brain I've read the readme 3 times gone over every window and I can't figure out how to insert an itemlink into a note so my question is

Is there a way to manually or otherwise insert an item link into a note you're editing?


p.s. forgive me if this is the wrong place to ask this

No Problem

The Special Notes section at the very top of the Readme.txt file, and at the very top of the AddOn Description above mentions how to create notes based on items, and how to put Hyperlinks in to Notes.

i.e. the last sentance specifically
"If you have a NotesUNeed note already open when using the above functionality, then a Link to the item will be pasted in to the open note, rather than a new note created."

So, for example if there is a Hyperlink in the Chat Frame, then open the note you want to paste it in to, put the text cursor at the point you want to insert the Hyperlink, and <Alt>-<Shift>-Click on the Hyperlink.


However, Blizzard functionality means you can NOT 'click' on Hyperlinks in Edit Boxes - so you can't 'click' on Hyperlinks in NotesUNeed notes and see the tooltip - the Chat Frame scroll window is NOT an Edit Box, but obviously the text section of NotesUNeed notes HAS TO BE an Edit Box...
If you want to access the Hyperlinks in a NotesUNeed note, then use the "[]" (Hyperlink) button in the top right corner of Note edit windows, and the Hyperlinks contained in a note will be echoed to the Chat Frame where you can click on them to display tooltips or paste in to other Chat Frame messages.

RETIREMENT

!!! BIG AUTHOR ANOUNCEMENT !!!


Well folks,

That's all from me - I'm giving up WoW and therefore won't be able to maintain my AddOns from now on. I'm starting a new job, and its just time to move on.

Thanks for all the support, and I hope you still find these AddOns continue to work for some time to come - otherwise you'll just have to find some other poor sucker to maintain 'em

If anyone is interested the following AddOns will be orphaned :
NotesUNeed,
AlphaMap (Fan's Update),
PartySpotter,
MozzFullWorldMap (Fan's Update),
MapNotes (Fan's Update),
WorldBossStrategyGuide,
Neptunia's MapNotes Skin


I'll be around for a few more days, but then you're on your own.


SLATFATF,

Telic
