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

Thank you so much for this addon. This is just what I have been looking for to build my own map note locations for the npcs and places I want to keep track of.

I especially love the "/mn -m" feature in that it either will create a new note or merge a new note into an existing note in that same spot.

Thank you, thank you. This makes finding my way around so much easier and allows for me to have more fun, instead of racking my brain to remember where to go.

I use this along with Carbonite and TomTom and, as you can see from my many thanks, is just what I need. Thank you!

There's one more little change needed to make MapNotes 3.1 compliant.
Around line 1458 of MapNotes.lua there's a block of code using
MiniMapCompassRing:GetFacing() which no longer exists in the 3.1 client.

First post in this thread provides a couple alternatives.

Thanks for updating a favorite addon.

Bleh, thx Dridzt. I've already fixed that issue in AlphaMap, but don't usually play with it, so then forgot about it in MapNotes

Will fix

Need help

Just updated to the latest version and I seem to be having an issue. I use tomtom and lightheaded and when I click on some cords in lightheaded, I get my tomtom waypoint but also a mapnote created for me automatically now. This seems to be a mininote but I don't see any way of stopping this from happening. I try the option of turning it off, but it does nothing. I was not having this issue before but I am now.

Re: Need help

Mmm, I did make a change in this area, connected to better MobMap & AlphaMap support. In previous versions of MapNotes you had to hold down the Control key for a permanent note, or the Alt key for a temporary note in order to create these markers, but now a temporary Thottbott marker will be created without the Alt key being held down.

Lightheaded has support for MapNotes Mininote creation in the same way that it has for Carto and TomTom, but as I mention above, you had to also hold down a 'special' key to choose whether you wanted a permanent MapNote or a temporary one, but now you do NOT, and a temporary MapNote is created by default.

So, it sounds like Lightheaded is expecting Carto & TomTom & MapNotes to be mutually exclusive and is executing any & all of them that are present when you ask for a Waypoint. I will ask Cladhaire to make a slight change so that a MapNotes Mininote is not requested if either Carto or TomTom are present



Edit:
Cladhaire is having a look, but not sure when they'll have time.
In the mean time, as long as the marker is just the Thottbott marker, then it is temporary and only one is allowed, so you won't have LOADS of new MapNotes - just ignore it (?)

Remember, if you do want to create a permanent MapNote, then hold down the Control key when you use Lightheaded to make a WayPoint...

I don't know if it's a mod that doing it, or MapNotes itself, but the right-click main map menu keeps dissappearing before I have a chance to click on any menu item. I have to right- click 2 or 3 times before I can click the menu item I want.

It definitely sounds like another AddOn might be causing this. What other map related AddOns do you have installed?

Hey Telic

I just wanted to confirm what the last poster had said about the right-click menu disappearing VERY quickly before you can even hover over a line item. Happens to me a lot. Quite a lot! And yeah takes as many as 3-7 tries before you can actually enter the right-click menu.

Only addons that are map related I have are Cartographer, MapNotes and TomTom.

EDIT: And Lightheaded too if you consider that also.

I can only think that maybe world map updates are hiding the menus and you have some combination of AddOns & Settings that is triggering updates...

Maybe I'll just try some generic menu protection to make sure external updates don't close them... or something
