Vertical positioning not working with viewport addon

Status: Unconfirmed

I was testing the latest beta version and noticed that vertical positioning doesn't work correctly when viewport addon is used. In my case, Sunn - Viewport. Below are the screenshots showing the problem:

No viewport addon - perfectly fine:

Forgot to mention, the clickable area remains in the same place with or without the viewport, so with viewport addon i have to click somewhere in between the mob and the nameplate to select that mob.

I'm also having this same identical issue using this addon and with sunn - viewport. I have always been using them together so the chance is with this addon as the viewport addon has received no recent changes.

Try turning on "Compatibility Mode" via /tidyplates

Looks like this new method of attaching nameplates to improve FPS is not limited to TidyPlates, and is just not compatible with viewports.

This addon - http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info22478-rNamePlates2.html - has the same issue when using viewport.

As noted, use Compatibility Mode when using alternative viewports.
