Nameplate Targeting Problems

Is anyone else have a problem with trying to click on nameplates to target? My wife and I both use NUI+. I'm using the newest one and she is using the older version before patch 5.4 and we both have to click about an inch below the name plate to click the nameplate when we have NUI+ turned on. Any ideas on how I can fix this. Makes it really hard to target a specific enemy in a large mob group.

Did you turn on the click feature for auras? That would cause that problem.

If you're using nUI out of the box, unmodified, I'm not sure what the cause would be. That said, I'm working on code again today, so I'll spend some time seeing if I can reproduce it.

What people don't get is that I am, ultimately, an artist at heart.
My brush has two colors, 1 and 0, and my canvas is made of silicon.

If they are using a recent version of TidyPlates, there is an issue with any mod (like nUI) that uses a viewport. In TidyPlates, you have to go to the Options->Interface->AddOns->TidyPlates Hub and check the box for "Compatibility Mode".

The TidyPlates FAQ mentions that using a viewport tends to screw up nameplates in general; I only noticed the TidyPlates problem after 5.4, so it may be something Blizzard changed.
