Question NUI Additional Action Bars

I've edited the default dashboard so that I have 3 rows of action bars stacked up (I'm a masher+clicker, I like most of my buttons all stacked up) my problem (cosmetic only it doesn't affect gameplay) is that by increasing the rows to 3 for my action bars I see that all my spells in rows 2 and 3 are mirrored in what Blizzard calls the bottom left etc (to the left of the minimap and playerframe as well as under the chat window in the standard Nui layout) Is there anyway I can not show the action bars under the chat window and to the left of the player frame, but still have my 3 rows of action bars stacked on top?

I can attach a screen shot if I'm not conveying what bars I mean.

~Moose

BTW.. LOVE this UI!

Edited the dashboard how? As in, using more nUI action bars? Or as in using another bar mod?

I manually edited the nui_layout_default_dashbord.lua file.

This is the only edit I made

nUI_DefaultConfig.ButtonBars =
{
["nUI_ActionBar"] =
{
btn_size = 53.5,
gap = 2,
anchor = "BOTTOM",
xOfs = 0,
yOfs = 123,
rows = 3,<--- changed value from 1 to 3
cols = 12,
page = 1,
nuibind = "nUI_ACTIONBAR",
binding = "ACTIONBUTTON",
label = nUI_L["nUI_ActionBar"],
},

Probably not the best way to approach that problem. Rather than make that bar 3x12 (which will have all kinds of odd consequences when you're on mounts, special action bars, etc.). Rather, I would leave it as a 1x12 and move the two bars that were duplicated so that they are in the position directly under that bar.

The other nUI bars are all using the pages that you accessed when you made your bar 3x12, so it hurts nothing to just move them and you gain nothing by not moving them. In addition, because they are not tied into the page switching and all of that extra action bar, possession bar, vehicle bar, etc., logic, they'll behave as you expect them to all of the time. The way you're doing it, they will not.

Woot... much appreciated, it did seem a little ham handed. Thanks for the help!
