Conflict with SLDataText
Bug #: 7741

Status: Not a Bug
While I was fixing my UI from the patch day hell, I noticed that PocketPlot was stubbornly displaying zone text and ignoring my attempts to hide, move or resize the text. After disabling and enabling addons in pairs for a while I believe the problem was caused by something in SLDataText.

I have no idea what would be the cause, but soon as I disabled SLDT, PocketPlot's zonetext started responding to configuration again. Of course it could also be a problem with PP code, so I'll submit this report to both of the addons in question.

Did you really have to post your report 3 times?

Looking at SLDT's code, it's messing with the Show/Hide stuff of the MinimapZoneTextButton. It's even got special code for if Chinchilla (another minimap addon) is installed. SLDT tries to control the visibility of the zone text on your minimap based on whether you have that module enabled or not in SLDT. Of course, when you have two addons trying to do the same thing, they're going to step on each other's toes.

This isn't a bug with PocketPlot. PP is doing exactly what it is supposed to be doing. Controlling things on the minimap.
