Remember Your Bindings

Version: 4.0
by: RosyBijou [More]

This is not an addon to place into your World of Warcraft folder... You will need Adobe Reader for these files--they are all in .pdf format.

Added a 9 button mouse map for fancy-schmancy mice!


It is a set of templates to print for those of us who need a little help in remembering which keys and mouse bindings belong to which actions, spells, etc... It's relevant to all versions of WoW (if you'd like a little reminder of your key & mouse bindings)...

Originally intended for users of click-to-cast addons, such as HealBot, Clique and VuhDo, this download has been expanded to include several iterations of a keyboard map as well, so it's not limited to click-casters anymore. The files are saved separately, so you can print the map that best suits your needs...

As a HealBot lover who often tinkers with bindings, sometimes I forget what my latest modification is--not good when trying to use a specific spell in a tense situation! (Sure, I could use HB's built-in tool-tip function, but I prefer to keep those turned off...) After losing my scraps of paper with my latest bindings, I decided to create templates that I could simply re-print when necessary.

-----------------------------------

Current version includes:

--two mouse binding maps to print and fill in--useful for Healbot, Clique, VuhDo, etc... Not fancy, just functional...
  • mouse_basic.pdf is a basic 5 button mouse reference chart.
  • mouse_expanded.pdf is a mouse reference chart expanded to include up to 9 mouse buttons.
--several iterations of the same keyboard binding map to print and fill in. The keys are color coded so you can jot down what keys you've bound to the alt, ctrl & shift modifiers... Not a ton of space--you'll have to develop your own shorthand for your bindings if you're a frequent modifier user, but sometimes a little memory jog is all that's required...
  • keyboard_base.pdf: keyboard block only
  • keyboard_direction.pdf: keyboard block, direction key block & Insert/Home/Page Up block.
  • num_pad.pdf: number pad block only
  • direction_num_pad.pdf: number pad block, direction key block & Insert/Home/Page Up block.
  • keyboard_all.pdf: the whole kit-n-caboodle, like the screenshot... If printed to fit on standard letter sized paper, this file will be way too small to fill in comfortably, but I included it for those lucky few who can print longer widths and want the image intact.

--My original plan for updating the keyboard chart was to lighten the text, lose the color rings and make the entire image have a grid-like format, so that there would be more space to write... but SHKM linked a .pdf version in my comments section... Rather than reinventing the wheel, I figured that I'd refine my rings & text and post a link to SHKM's creation here... (Thank you, SHKM, for sharing!)

-----------------------------------

Printing Notes

If you print the mouse file in standard letter size and fold it in half, you will have two templates, (useful if you're dual spec'd and have different spells bound or if you want to remember a previous combination). Or, you can just cut it in half... I hate wasting paper and felt that it was better to fill the paper!

You should set the keyboard files to landscape mode for best printing. Tinker with your page scaling & use the Print Preview before hitting that PRINT button, so it comes out all nice...

Hope others find it as useful as I do!
If you have suggestions that would make this more useful, let me know & I'll see what I can do. (Alternatively, if there is a previous version that you prefer & want to re-download, you can always go back into the Archived Files Tab. I have noted all of my changes in the Change Log so it should be easy to locate your preferred version.)

-----------------------------------

Hey! Look what I just found... BindingsReminder... This is an in game AddOn to help remind you of your bindings! Haven't tried it yet, and am not quite willing to give up my paper notes, but it looks terrific!

-----------------------------------

(Also, since this file is tagged for use only with HealBot, (which I use and love, by the way!), you might want to consider adding it to your favorites so you can find it if you need to download a fresh copy in the future...) Thanks for letting me know that it has other applications!

v4.0... added a mouse chart that has spaces for 9 buttons. (folder contains 7 .pdf files)
---------------------------------------
v3.1... darkened text overlay for better visibility, added ring around backspace key, removed unusable buttons (folder contains 6 .pdf files)
---------------------------------------
v3.0... overhauled keyboard map for easier reference, added a variety of print options for keyboard (folder contains 6 .pdf files)
---------------------------------------
v2.0... added basic keyboard map (folder contains 2 .jpg & 2 .pdf files)
---------------------------------------
v1.0... original files (mouse binding map only)

Sure, I'd consider doing something like this, since my photoshop files are all in layers, it'd be pretty easy to pull together a graphical representation of different mouse/input tools.

Problem on my end, is that I play with a traditional keyboard and standard mouse. I've never even seen those gadgets in real life, much less have any clue about what modifier keys are built in!

Sooo, if folks are interested, it'd be helpful to have a few links or suggestions on how to best go about it...

ie:
.......would a graphic template be more useful, like the keyboard with the color coded rings? With fewer keys, it could easily be enlarged to provide more writing room...
.......or would a chart-like template, like my mouse format, be more efficient?

Lately, I've been enjoying fiddling with my little organizational graphic files, so I'm willing to give it a shot-- I just need a little direction...

My tip is to print this on photo paper. That way it's stiff enough to stand up on its own so you can prop it up without it trying to bend in the middle.

Thank you for sharing this! You should upload your version here on WoWI! One of the things that I love about this site is the variety of options from which to choose when looking at different ways to enhance the Warcraft experience.

The version that I am working on is actually very similar to yours in that I'm losing the "button look" in lieu of having more room to write. Trying to have color bars within the new button grid, (instead of borders around buttons), to correspond to the modifier keys so it will be an easier visual reference.

I think the grid format is much better!, but I uploaded what I currently have in use (tho it's pretty ratty at this point from lots of erasures!) Space is definitely a limitation in this version & one that I hope to improve upon shortly.

There's a serious genius in this. It's somehow less annoying (and stressful) than standing around for five minutes playing keyboard and mouse Twister remembering what spells I bound to what combo.

Cool! Since I don't use those, it never occurred to me that this would be useful for anything besides HealBot! I'll update the description to reflect those as well. Thanks for posting!
