!! Man you guys are quick, I just uploaded that thing! Devla is the man though, he's on top of it all. I hope everyone grabs the new version quick because that chat thing was annoying. :-( I was sweating all day at work today knowing I couldn't fix it until I got home.

Request: Is there some way to have a text label stating faction standing, ie Friendly, Neutral, Hostile and another label stating PvP enabled or not PvP enabled? For those that have vision problems, whether colour blindness, eye degeneration for whatever reason, etc. Sometimes having the text label is easier than trying to decide if that is a red or green background, etc.

Cairenn, the faction icon that shows to the right indicated whether the PvP flag is set or not. I'll rename the option because I don't think that is clear.

As for the friendly/hostile stuff: I can add an option to append (friendly) text, etc to the name if you like. Or what do you think would work best?

Aye, I knew that's what the little icon is for, but again, for folks with eye problems, it somehow needs to be more distinct, I think. For both it and the "friendly/hostile", I figured you could just give a toggle to either have them display or not. Placement ... /shrug ...

Chester, I've run into an error the last couple of days. I am not even positive what it is that I am targetting or attempting to do when the error message shows up, I haven't seen a pattern as of yet, although I am trying to watch for it. The error message is:

Is that an old screenshot of an error? One from a previous version, maybe? Sorry, I know the error, but in v1.74, line 2228 is blank.

Thanks Cairenn.

Interface question - Tool Tip Text

I'm having a hard time isolating this little quirk. Notice in the picture that the text box for the bank items is cut off by the screen edge? I have deleted the layout and chat files from the WTF directory and just cant seem to straighten it out. Any ideas?

Not sure why deleting your layout files isn't fixing this for you, but to have the best control over it, I'd recommend using a mod for your tooltips like tipbuddy or something. You can grab tipbuddy here, or just look through the downloads section for tooltip mods.
