Can you document what you commented out in Titan to fix that? I'm going to see if I can find it myself but I'm not expecting that to accomplish much...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Keybinds and bars reset for other toons

I was careless but i had a month old back up for my other toons.

I JUST made a back up of my DK before i logged him in because of my problems with the other toons.

So lucky. I will wait for the next release before taking the chance haha

Thanks

Or are you saying that I will have to re do all the addons settings eventually anyway ?

let me know thanks!

Strange. I just compaired what is here and on Github and the files are the same. There have not been any updates since it was released on the 20th. The only thing I can think of is if you previously had the bad V10.1 and updated to 10.3 . It will probably be a good idea to keep a backup of the ion saved variables, just to be on the safe side.

Fixed them with backups of my WTF OMG thank goodness

*** Warning - Don't use the official one up there keep using the last one on the GIThub or you will end up with serious issues of bars and binds resetting etc wait until you hear more from the authors about it ****
The Version on Github is the same as official version. The 10.1 version got pushed with a modified version of the Toc that switched the bar layout from a global save to a per character save, which caused all the problems. The Toc issue was fixed, but unfortunately as the saved variables had already been modified from the Toc change, there was no way for the addon to revert it back.

Glad that cat form is working again. I'd guess that Thrash is one of the many spells that Ion does not auto generate macro text properly. Its one of the things that I had hoped to fix, but had to revert back to work on a bit more. Based on looking at the spell on wowhead it appears that the there might be subtext on the spell that is getting added to the macro which breaks it. Id guess that if you go to the edit mode and look at the macro generated it will be something like /cast Thrash(Feral, Guardian)() or with some extra text after the "Thrash". If there is extra text, you can just delete it so it is just /cast Thrash() and the button should work again. I'll look into it deeper once I get home and have time to log into the game.

Unfortunately it appears that Maul never implemented the menu. All it ever has been is the black box.
Thank you for the information. I never bothered to ask before, but at least it's "working as intended".

Last night, I switched from 10.2 to 10.3. Started off great. Everything looks good. So I'm switching my toons, and setting up my Arkinventory to work with the new reagents tab and I notice that several of my bars have gone missing. Not all, but some. I click the ION minimap button to edit the bars, and the bars *exist*, they're just not populated. Not buttons, but if I click on one to edit it, it *says* I have 'x' buttons. So I click the 'add button' arrow, and *some* (not all) of the buttons for that bar show up. This includes my bag bar and my menu bar. Also the casting bar and the extra action button. So I decide to manually try to fix that particular toons bars, and some of the bars won't populate at all. "-2 buttons" for example. And suddenly the bar is moved from the bottom of the screen to a quarter of the way up the screen.

So I log out of that toon and back to one that I know I was just using and was good. Yep, same problem.

So I simply stopped and logged out. I'm afraid that the problem is going to be "saved" to my saved variables and If there's a fix and the other toons are good, I don't want to mess them up. I don't really want to delete the messed up bars and start over. I'm not on that PC right now, so I cna't give you a list of the AddOn's that are loaded (and what is the command you need to use to make that nice list as shown by someone earlier?), but I'll be back on this evening.
I think something breaks if a character uses a flyout that Blizzard removed from the game, like hunter traps, priest chakras, shaman totems, or warrior banners. Since some flyouts like hunter call pets, mage portals, and rogue poisons are still in the game, the bars might appear for some characters while not for others. What worked for me:
(probably good idea to make back-ups before changes)

1. In text editor, open Ion.lua (the one per character that stores each character's buttons) found in WTF/Account/[Account Name]/[Server Name]/[Character Name]/Saved Variables/

2. Search for 'flyout' which should find something like:
["macro_Text"] = "#showtooltip Mocking Banner()\n/cast [nobtn:2] Mocking Banner()\n/stopmacro [nobtn:2]\n/flyout blizz:75:l:l:r:12:c",

3. If the flyout is no longer in the game, either blank the button out or replace with a nonflyout button:
["macro_Text"] = "",
or
["macro_Text"] = "#autowrite\n/cast Mocking Banner()",

4. Replace each instance of the invalid flyouts. Repeat for each Ion.lua per character with missing bars. If it works, the bars should appear in-game, and you can repopulate the buttons with whatever from the spell book.

I don't know if there's a more elegant solution, but this worked for me.
