MapNotes  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v5.16.30200
by: Cortello, Telic
v5.16.30200




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.

***********
Description
***********

Adds a note system to the WorldMap helping you keep track of interesting locations.
MapNotes(Fan's Update) also provides a Plugin interface for other AddOns to take advantage of the note making ability. AlphaMap(Fans Update) uses this interface to allow Note creation on AlphaMap Maps of Instances, BattleGrounds, and World Boss Maps. This version of MapNotes comes with in-built support for creation of notes on Atlas maps, also using this Plugin interface.
For these purpose MapNotes offers the following main functions:
1. Marking notes on the WorldMap
2. Showing one of these notes on the MiniMap (see MiniNote)
3. Allows any other AddOn to use MapNotes note creation ability to mark notes on frames within their own AddOn :
- Marking notes on AlphaMap (Fan's Update) Instance maps
- Marking notes on Atlas maps

"/tloc" can be used to toggle this AddOns minimap coordinates instead of Thottbott's minimap coordinates.
NOTE : PLEASE still use "/mn -tloc xx,yy" to place a Thottbott marker on the map. "/tloc" ONLY toggles Minimap Coordinates.

Should be compatible with both Cartographer, although you may no longer be able to create notes on the map with the in-built functionality provided by that AddOn - only with the functionality provided by MapNotes (Fan's Update).

********
Features
********

[Slash Commands] - NOTE : See separate file "LegacySlashCommands.txt" for old style commands
================

/mapnote OR /mapnotes OR /mn
Use without any other parameters to see which version of MapNotes is installed, and access the list of available Slash Commands.

Otherwise can be used to insert a Map Note by a slash command (which you can create in the Send Menu), for example, to put a note at the Entrance of Stormwind City on the map Elwynn Forest:

"/mapnote k<WM Elwynn> x<0.320701> y<0.491480> t<Stormwind> i1<Entrance> i2<> cr<ciphersimian> i<0> tf<0> i1f<0> i2f<0>"

NOTE: The above would all be on one line Description of the identifiers:

k<#> - Key based on the map name from GetMapInfo() prefixed by "WM " (English name on all clients - never localised) Varies for other AddOns using the Plugin functionality
x<#> - X coordinate, based on the GetPlayerMapPosition() function
y<#> - Y coordinate, based on the GetPlayerMapPosition() function
t<text> - Title for the MapNote
i1<text> - first line of text displayed under the Title in the MapNote (Info 1)
i2<text> - second line of text displayed under the Title in the MapNote (Info 2)
cr<text> - Creator of the MapNote
i<#> - icon to use for the MapNote, AddOns/MapNotes/POIIcons/Icon#.tga
tf<#> - color of the Title, AddOns/MapNotes/POIIcons/Color#.tga
i1f<#> - color of the Info 1 line (colors as above)
i1f<#> - color of the Info 2 line (colors as above)
mn<1> - (optional) If included, then a value of 1 will set the note as a mininote also. Any other value and the note will NOT be set as a mininote.



/mn -allow OR /mn -a
Allows you to receive the next note, even if you have disabled receiving in the options. If invoked with no parameters, it will toggle the current state.


/mn -automini
Shows the next note created (using any method) as a MiniNote and also puts it on the WorldMap. If invoked with no parameters, it will toggle the current state.


/mn -allmini
Toggle all MapNotes off/on as Mininotes
(Keybinding also available)


/mn -nextmini
Shows the next note created (using any method) as a MiniNote and also puts it on the WorldMap. If invoked with no parameters, it will toggle the current state.


/mn -minionly
Like the previous command, but doesn't put the note on the WorldMap.


/mn -minioff
Turns the MiniNote off.


/mn -tloc tbX,tbY
Sets a "Thottbot location" on the map. Use it with no arguments to toggle it off.
See the Section on Formatting of X,Y Coordinates


/mn -q [icon] [name]
Adds a note at your current location, icon and name are optional (icon any number from 0 to 9, AddOns/MapNotes/POIIcons/Icon#.tga)
If no [name] is passed, then the Note will be named based on the MiniMap Text, and the second/third lines will be populated with more zone information and/or the default QuickNote text.


/mn -qtloc xx,yy [icon] [name]
See the Section on Formatting of X,Y Coordinates
Adds a note on the map you are currently on at the given thottbot location, icon and name are optional (icon any number from 0 to 9, AddOns/MapNotes/POIIcons/Icon#.tga)


NEW SLASH COMMANDS IN MapNotes(Fan's Update)

/mn -s [search text]
If you want to search for a note, to see if one exists, or where it is, then you can use this command, and MapNotes will print out a report in the chat window, displaying the names of all maps which have a note containing that text


/mn -hl [note name]
If you have lots of notes and want to clearly identify a single one on a map, or if you want a certain note to remain highlighted, then use this command and they will be displayed with a green circle around them.
If there are several notes with that name or containing that text, then they will ALL be highlighted.
The note name does not have to be case sensitive, and doesn't have to be an exact match - all notes containing the [note name] text will be highlighted.
If the EXACT NAME is specified (not case-sensitive), the note will also be marked as a MiniNote on the Minimap


/mn -mapc
Toggle the display of Player and Cursor Coordinates on the World Map
Control-Left-Click and drag the coordinates to move them to a different position on the World Map if you are not happy with the default.


/mn -minic
Toggle the display of Player coordinates below the Minimap.


/mn -t [icon] [name]
Creates a quicknote at the Player's current location if the Player has no target.
If the Player does have a target, then it will create a note for that target at the Player's current location, icon and name are optional (icon any number from 0 to 9, AddOns/MapNotes/POIIcons/Icon#.tga)


/mn -m
Creates a note for the Player's target at the Player's current location.
OR Merges the details for the Player's current target in to a Map Note that has already been created at the Player's current location.
MUST have targetted a Player/NPC/Mob for this to work.


/mn -scale [0.5 - 1.5]
The size of MapNotes Menus and Frames are now fixed no matter what the scale of the World Map or other AddOn Map being used.
This command can be used to change the default size of MapNotes Menus and Frames if the user finds it too small or large.
The default value is 0.7
Therefore "/mn -scale 1.0" will make the Menus and Frames appear larger than they do by default.


/mn -undelete
Will undelete the last deleted MapNote.



IMPORTANT NOTE ON THE IMPORT FUNCTIONS BELOW
All of the functions below are mainly designed for people who have just installed MapNotes (Fan's Update). If you have been using this version of MapNotes for some time already, and have your own notes, then these functions may overwrite your existing notes. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.


/script MapNotes_ImportCarto()
NOTE: only works with English localisation currently
If you want to move from Cartographer 2 to MapNotes, then log in to the game with both AddOns enabled, ust the above command, after which you will receive notification in the chat window on how many notes have been imported.


/MapNotes_Import_MetaMap
If you want to move from MetaMapNotes to MapNotes, then log in to the game with both AddOns enabled, use the above command, after which you will receive notification in the chat window on how many notes have been imported.


/MapNotes_Import_AlphaMap
If you have AlphaMap installed, and want to convert the in-built Instance and World Boss notes in to MapNotes notes, then use the above command, and you will see a message in the chat window informing you of how many notes have been imported in to MapNotes.
This does NOT import Battleground notes by default, as AlphaMap's in built Battleground functionality works best without MapNotes overlaying the BG Objectives.
NOTE: You don't have to import notes from AlphaMap, to make MapNotes on AlphaMap Instance/Battleground/WorldBoss maps. You can create any notes you like manually.


/MapNotes_Import_AlphaMapBG
As mentioned above, the basic "/MapNotes_Import_AlphaMap" command does not import Battleground notes by default. If you do want to import AlphaMap Battlegournd map notes, then use this command to do so.


/MapNotes_Import_CTMapMod
If you want to move from using CTMapMod to MapNotes (Fan's Update), then log in to the game with both AddOns enabled, use the above command, after which you will receive notification in the chat window on how many notes have been imported; Then log out, and disable CTMapMod.




[Key Bindings]
==============

QuickNote/TargetNote
--------------------
Creates a quicknote at the Player's current location if the Player has no target.
If the Player does have a target, then it will create a note for that target at the Player's current location.
-OR CLICK MINIMAP COORDINATES-
If you are NOT targetting anything, then ALT-Left-Click on the Minimap Coordinates to create a QuickNote.
If you are targetting something, then ALT-Left-Click to create a Target note with details about the current target at the PLAYER'S current location - you will be warned if you are too near to an existing note to create a new note.
(Slash Command "/mn -t" also available)

TargetNote/MergeNote
--------------------
Creates a note for the Player's target at the Player's current location.
OR Merges the details for the Player's current target in to a Map Note that has already been created at the Player's current location.
MUST have targetted a Player/NPC/Mob for this to work.
-OR CLICK MINIMAP COORDINATES-
If you are targetting something, then you may also ALT-Right-Click on the Minimap Coordinates if you wish to create a note for your Target at the PLAYER'S current location. However, if a MapNote already exists at Player's location, then the details will be merged with the existing note.
(Slash Command "/mn -m" also available)




[Fast Note Creation/Editing/Deleting]
=====================================

- <Control>+<Alt>+Right-click on a MAP/FRAME to create a Quicknote at that point

- <Control>+<Alt>+Right-click on a NOTE to quickly go to the note Editing Frame

- <Control>+<Alt>+Left-clicking to drag NOTES to new positions

- <Alt>+Right-click on a NOTE to toggle it as a Minimap note

- <Alt>+<Shift>+DOUBLE Right-click on a note to quickly delete it.

- <Control>+<Shift>+Right-click will create a temporary blue Group note on a map
If created on a World map, then it will also be displayed in the Minimap for you to track
If in a Raid group, then the note will be shared with other Raid members who have MapNotes installed
Otherwise, if in a Party, then the note will be shared with the Party members who have MapNotes installed
Otherwise, its just your own quick temporary marker

Changes in v3.44.20100 from v3.43.20100

========================================
Changes in v3.44.20100 from v3.43.20100
========================================

Again, BIG thanks to Morac for testing and indeed fixing some of the issues detailed below :

- Raid/Party notes can now be set on Plugin frames/maps e.g. Atlas or AlphaMap Instance maps
<Control>-<Shift>-Right clicking on a Plugin map will set a Group note on that map that will be shared with other group members - obviously they will require both MapNotes and the other AddOn to actually see the note, but it is still safe to set Raid/Party notes when other members do not have the required AddOns.
(i.e. Group notes will be shared with Raid members if you are in a Raid, or Party members if you are in a Party)
NOTE : Group notes made on Instance maps will NOT be set as Mininotes on the Minimap

- Fixed a problem with the Localised names of Plugin maps (especially Atlas)

- Fixed a problem with note creation messages on Plugin maps

- Simply moved the Atlas-specific Plugin code to its own AddOn and folder where it can be maintained separately to MapNotes itself. (Or enabled/disabled separately, and replaced by newer/alternative Plugin code for Atlas)

Re: Sorry, some Newbie questions

There isn't a limit on notes, and they shouldn't be disappearing.
Although "MapNotes (Fan's Update)" should be compatible with MetaMap I can't fully guarantee it, as MetaMap has its own noting system and was developed from MapNotes so if it still has any of the same old function names then problems might happen...
Do you use WoWKB or MetaMap_KB thingy ? These AddOns have the potential to delete chunks of MapNotes at a time...

If you want to send my your Saved Variables MapNotes.lua file, I will try to sanity check it and see if I can see any obvious errors.

telic@hotmail.co.uk


When you log in with MapNotes you could try the following command in the chat window

/script MN_DataCheck(true)

and see if any notes suddenly come back ?


Options now also include the ability to auto-note Blizzard POIs as MapNotes LandMarks.
When the Landmarking Option is turned on, then Guard Directions to NPCs will be stored as MapNotes.
<Control>-Right click on a map, Open the MapNotes Options, there should be an Auto-note landmarks checkbox....


Hope these things help,

Telic,

I've read through all the documentations and postings and and sorry, I'm still confused about a few points which I hope somebody will be kind enough to clarify for me:

1: I've noticed that after laboriously having created some 50 notes in i.e. STV, when I return (in the "not too distance future") they are still all there, and also visible to my alt's, but suddenly one dismal day, they will all be gone! WHY???
a) Is there a limit on the total number of notes you are allowed to make? So that as you keep visiting new regions and adding new notes, at some time (when adding notes in i.e. Eastern Plaguleand, MapNotes simply and without any warning or indication erases all your previous notes, painstakingly made in STV)?
b) If so, what is the limit? And can you expand that somewhere? If so, how?
c) Or is there a sell-by-date restriction, so that after x number of days MapNotes decides that those notes are old and not worth keeping anymore and just deletes them?

2: I've also noted that on some occasions, when I enter a new region, a notification comes up:
"<MapNotes> 11 Landmarks Noted in Felwood".
I'm not quite sure if this is a function of MapNotes or MetaMap. If MapNotes can do that, WHERE or HOW do I make that list of POI's that is automatically added/loaded?

I know that it is probably stupid questions, revealing what a hopeless newbie I am, but I still hope someone will have mercy on me and help me out here.

Yours sincerely

Minimap Dots

Mmm, you'll have to correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't there now a new mode for using the Minimap ? (Introduced in one of the patches after BC?)
I don't have a gaming account atm, so I'm not sure but I could swear someone mentioned a new Blizzard Option for how the Minimap works .... ?
... and therefore the MapNotes tracking dots don't work with that new option, but they do still work with the old mode.

?

Red Dot on MiniMap

I hope this is the right place to post this. One of the feature I like about MapNotes is the ability to place a Red Dot in the MiniMap after I use /mn -tloc x,y After I used this command, a Red Dot does indeed show me the correct direction. However, if I turn toward the Dot (in the mini map) the red dot moves with me. So that I can never actually face the Red dot. Looking at the map will show the red dot in the correct place it's just the mini map I am having trouble with. Since I don't see any other posts about this, I am either doing something wrong or no one else uses this feature. Cheers.

v3.43.20100

[Fast/Easy Methods of Note Creation/Editing/Deleting]
=====================================================

- <Control>+<Alt>+Right-click on a MAP/FRAME to create a Quicknote at that point

- <Control>+<Alt>+Right-click on a NOTE to quickly go to the note Editing Frame

- Move the mouse over a NOTE to see the tooltip with the information you entered

- <Control>+<Alt>+Left-clicking to drag NOTES to new positions

- <Alt>+Right-click on a NOTE to toggle it as a Minimap note

- <Alt>+<Shift>+DOUBLE Right-click on a note to quickly delete it.
NOTE :
There is a also a slash command "/mn -undelete" which will restore the last deleted MapNote.

- <Alt>+Left-clicking on two NOTES will draw a line between them

- <Shift>+Right-clicking on the MAP/FRAME toggles a temporary Party note that will be shared with Party members, and will be displayed as a MiniMap mininote by default
<Control>+<Shift>+Right-click will create a Raid note, rather than a Party note.
NOTE 1 :
Plugins that display World Map notes, such as AlphaMap may FORCE you to use <Control>+<Shift>+Right-click, as the <Control> key must be pressed to create any kind of Plugin note via the mouse.
NOTE 2 :
<Shift>+Right-clicking on a tloc note will also remove that note, although tloc notes can still only be created via slash commands

Changes in v3.40.20003 from v3.36.20003

=======================================
Changes in v3.40.20003 from v3.36.20003
=======================================

- Enhanced the Plugin functionality to allow other AddOns to create and edit WorldMap notes in their own frames.
e.g. AlphaMap (Fan's Update) v3.90.20003 and later can now make/edit WorldMap notes within AlphaMap without opening the Blizzard map.
Via new Plugin option "wmflag"
Other AddOn frames displaying world map icons will also show Party/tloc notes, and Highlighted notes.

- Added Slider controls to the Options Frame to control :
1.) Frame Size
2.) MapNote Icon Size
3.) MapNote Icon Alpha Setting

- fix to a couple of non-critical errors reported in FrameXML.log

Changes in v3.35.20003 from v3.30.20003

=======================================
Changes in v3.35.20003 from v3.30.20003
=======================================

- QuickNotes will now note your current location as detailed in the Minimap Text, possibly with more general zone location information in the second line of the note, and the default QuickNote text in the second or third lines of the note. I just felt this was more useful, as often when making quicknotes, I just wanted to note my current location's name.
You can still pass [icon] [name] parameters.

- Enhanced the Note Highlighting functionality.
If you have lots of notes, it can be quite useful to highlight the one you are looking for rather than inspecting the tooltip for each one in turn. This was the reason for originally introducing the "/mn -hl <Note Name>" command.
When you specify the exact name of a note, then the MapNote will be highlighted with a green circle on the Map, and will be displayed as a MiniNote you can track in the Minimap. MapNotes would highlight ALL notes with that name if more than one exists.
I have made this command more useful by allowing the user to enter part of a Notes name and not making it case sensitive, as often you won't be certain how the full name of the note is spelled, or whether it had capital letters, etc.
So for example if you have lots of notes in Shattrath city, and can't remember which one was the "Spymistress Mehlisah Highcrown", then you can type "/mn -hl spy", and that note will be highlighted on the map. More than one note might be highlighted if more than one note has the text "spy" in it.
You will still need to specify the exactly identical note name to make the highlighted note appear as a MiniNote automatically - although this is no longer case-sensitive either.
To remove Highlighting, just type "/mn -hl".
This functionality will highlight notes in any zone you look at on the Map.

- Fixed a problem with Alt-Clicking on the Minimap Coordinates to create Target/Merge Notes, which sometimes required double clicking

- Now Hides the World Map area Label information while the <Control> Key is depressed to hide clutter

- Now Hides the World Map area Label information when the MapNotes Quick Options Drop Down Menu is open

- MapNotes Quick Options Drop Down Menu will now close when the Map closes

- Added support that Cartographer users who want to use MapNotes (Fan's Update) requested.
<Control>-Right Click will now show the MapNotes note menu rather than the Cartographer note menu

Low Compression Version Update

v3.30.20003.low is a low Compression Ratio version of the zip file for v3.30.20003, and is provided purely for people who have Oversized.zip errors when trying to download other versions of MapNotes (Fan's Update)

The actual contents of the zip file are exactly the same as the normal v3.30.20003 download

Yup, there is no virus in this file.

I use 7-zip to zip my AddOns and also to improve the compression ratio and make them as small as possible.

Although I'm not entirely certain whether this web site is one that unpacks submitted zips, and re-zips them itself or not...

Obviously your mail/web server has detected that the compression ratio is higher than it allows and has rejected it. Software called ClamAV seems particularly susceptible to this problem. (This check was originally introduced to filter "zip of death" files that have absurdly high compression ratios and unpack to truly HUGE files)
If you are downloading through a private/university network, you should raise this issue with the Administrator of that network.

Anyway, I'm submitting a 'low' compression ratio version to the Curse gaming web site :

Oversized.zip

Yup, there is no virus in this file.

I use 7-zip to zip my AddOns and also to improve the compression ratio and make them as small as possible.

Although I'm not entirely certain whether this web site is one that unpacks submitted zips, and re-zips them itself or not...
