Quest watch Hi-light

I used to get a whole Hi-lighted area of where my quests should be done, now there's just a circle node, and I can't find a way to get the hi-light area back...this was on the regular map. On the minimap, I was still getting a blue hi-lighted area for where the quest area was, now it no longer does this. Am I missing a setting? I think I've gone through the whole list. I also don't know where the update notes are.

Thanks you!

Right click on the map itself, then click Show, a list of items of possible things to show will pop up.. make sure "Quest POI's is checked there"

Thank you, this helped for a blue "blob" to show up on my map, but the mini-map is still missing any sort of "blobs." Under show, I did not see "show quest POI," however, there was a show "quest blob". This is what made the blue blob show up for whatever quest I'm on, however the multi-colored hi-lighting is still not working. I have all of the correct options selected. I'm sure I'm still missing something. Thank you for your help!

the minimap doesn't show blobs anymore, it's all on the map itself now.

Multi-color doesn't work unfortunately since I'm using blizzards blue instead of trying to draw my own.

Like you I have the blue quest blobs, but not the quest area multi-color highlighting for each quest. That particular function, for me anyway, has been busted since MoP went active and I miss it. I have the right options checked, but it's still not working.

Edit:
I just noticed what you said above Rythal about multi-color not working since you switched things to using Blizzards blue. I'm not sure if you're referring just to the color of the quest blob or also to the multi-coloring of the 'quest area' highlighting as we were talking about both of those features. If you're also referring to the latter, I gotta tell you this is a map feature that is sorely missed, at least by me anyway, it was one of Carbonite's main selling points.

Agreed, I enjoyed being able to differentiate between various quest objectives crowded into a certain area. It was especially useful for picking up items that spawn in very specific locations which Carbonite represented with a series of tiny quest blobs. I could see those tiny quest blobs even when there were also large quest blobs overlapping them.

This is kind of off-topic, but now that the "glow" effect is working on the blizzard minimap, I'm starting to see flickering on all other minimap icons every time the glow turns on or off, or even when there are no glowing spots on the map at all.

That's the reason it was disabled in the first place, besides setting the glow delay to 0 when your not farming there is no known fix that i've found yet.
