If you're talking about the instructions in this FAQ -- http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=21011 -- then that is the correct way to change the bar size in nUI5. Just make sure you're editing the correct file and you do have to save the changes before you reload the UI.

In what way does it 'not seem to work right' ?

Also, you may noticed while doing this small change that the bars overlap. At that point you need to do /nui movers and move the main action bar up higher.

Editing the other bars to bigger sizes are a bit more awkward due to their current location. What I did was put my main buttons on the main bar and not worry so much about the rest.

Once nUI 6 comes out with more flexibility with layout things should be easier.

how to move ...

Just wondering if there is a way to move the middle box which shows your personal potrait on the left, minimap in the middle, your target and target of target on the right side. I just want to move this frame up so I can /nui movers my main action bar to underneath it rather than above it. Tyvm.

At this time, no. I'm sorry.

nUI6 would allow you to do that, but even that will be an effort of sorts since you'll have to move a lot of things to make it work. All the same, you will be able to customize the layout to your heart's content.

Just curious Scott... will nUI6, upon fresh install, still look like nUI5? The only things I personally am interested in changing are the aura icons (so they match with ButtonFacade skins), and the health/mana etcetera bars on the unitframes (so I can match them with Skada, Healbot, ForteXorcist etcetera). I think nUI is already perfect the way it is, but those two things would personalize it more for me.

I've been debating with myself whether or not to change anything in the default display. I *think* I'm not going to... leave it just like it is. I do plan to offer a "healer" mode with an alternate layout more healer friendly. After that , any other layouts would be plugins.

At least that's the plan for the moment.

Are you sure you're changing them in the right place? And what exactly are you trying to change? Size? Location? Rows & Columns or something else?

The correct path should be [ C: > Program Files > World of Warcraft > Interface > AddOns > nUI > Layouts > Default > nUI_Layout_Default_Dashboard.lua ] on a Windows XP machine or on a Windows 7 / Windows Vista machine it would be [ C: > Users > Public > Games > World of Warcraft > Interface > AddOns > nUI > Layouts > Default > nUI_Layout_Default_Dashboard.lua ]

Customizing help!

Hey guys, just downloaded nUI, great so far just a few things I need help with:

in regards to the screenshot I attached to this comment how do i:

1) Get rid of the action bars that are in the middle left and right of the screen without also taking the skills off the action bars in the bottom

2)Get rid of my pet bar (top left) and class bar (top middle interfering with the top menu bar etc) as the pet bar and class bar are already combined in the bottom portion above the action bars

3) get rid of the target info that appears under the minimap in the bottom middle...i prefer the info box that appears middle left above the big action bar (although i will move it)

any help would be greatly appreciated
