said the problem was because of nUI so i figured i would come ask if i am just doing something wrong.

I targetted the toon, right clicked went to set focus and this popped up.

thanks for any help in advance,

P.S. thanks guys for all the hard work, love the addon so far, had it for several months now.

no unit frame addon is allowed to set the focus through the right click menu. You have to use /focus and /clearfocus on your target. It has been that way for years.

This is an issue I have been working on and off with Blizz... hopefully we can get a resolution soon. In their defense, it's a very complicated problem and not just a simple bug.

What people don't get is that I am, ultimately, an artist at heart.
My brush has two colors, 1 and 0, and my canvas is made of silicon.
