when posting a comment about an error do not include the list of addons, just the actual error and trace is fine.

AI's display windows are built from "virtual bars", you assign categories to bars so that items in that category are displayed on the specific bars you want. There is no limit to the number of bars you can have inside a window but obviously you only have so much screen real estate before it becomes "too many".

AI uses several methods to assign a default category to an item such as what professions you have, tooltip scanning, basic type/subtype and PeriodicTable. You then assign those categories to a virtual bar.

You can also over-ride the default category by creating a rule that matches either a single or multiple items.


  • unlimited number of bars (there are practical limits though before your screen becomes full)
  • assign items to a category of your choice (overrides the default assignment)
  • assign categories to the bar of your choice
  • configurable bars per row
  • configurable width
  • separate keybindings for each location for easy viewing

Key Bindings:
Press ESCAPE to bring up the blizzard menu
click on Key Bindings
scroll down to ArkInventory
bind the keys you want to use

See ReadMe.txt and VersionHistory.txt for further details

Beta Versions:

ensure you make a backup copy of your saved variables file before installing a beta version - you normally cannot revert back to the release version without that backup. your saved variable file is normally located in World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\yourwowaccountname\SavedVariables\ArkInventory.lua

if you have the curse client set to download beta versions then it is your responsibility to ensure you have adequate backups of your saved variables file - do not complain if you lose them or they get screwed up because you installed a beta version, its what beta versions tend to do.

a simple way to back it up is to just do a copy and paste then rename the new file (using the version number of AI or the date is a good idea), eg ArkInventory-3-01-09.lua, or ArkInventory-2013-12-28.lua

    should work fine as is but if you want void storage data included youll need to update

  • #3803

    I have two accounts. Is there anyway to show items across both of them?


  • #3804

    not easily, wow accounts dont share the same variables and the only way they can talk is through in-game channels.  you could edit the files and copy the data across but thats a bit messy.

    i was thinking of adding some proper sync capabilities but thats too complex, so i may just add broadcast ones instead as theyre easier to code.

  • #3799

    What's the name of the font in ArkInventory's screenshots?

  • #3801


  • #3798

    I've got a very strange issue. Every time I have my ArkInventory addon activated the buttons for dropping and tracking the quest in the standart WoW questlog stop working. After I turn ArkInventory (and the Rules module) off in the character selection screen (or in the ACP addon) these buttons become usable again, but with the addon activated they simply do not react to pressing them.

    Not fatal but quite inconvenient.

  • #3797


    Lately, for some reason, the addon doesn't show cooldon text. I have the cooldowns enabled and the icon even gets darker, but no time is showing on it. Any ideas how to fix this?

    I also have the OmniCC adon installed, but no cooldown text is shown even after disabling OmniCC.

  • #3800

    not sure, if youre seeing the cooldown spiral then the frame is being shown - ai doesnt add any numbers though, omnicc does that (and if the frame is visible then it should work).

  • #3796

    I think I tried almost all bag replacement addons, and I eventually came back to ArkInventory. I've been using it for a couple of years, but I was trying to find something FASTER than ArkInventory.

    I'm having a couple issues/nuisances with it:

    • It uses a HUGE amount of CPU power! If you run a profiler addon and you toggle the Bags window with a key, you'll notice that it will use way too much CPU. My guess is that it's because of Tooltip Scanning . An option to disable it (but at the expense of not being able to use some sorting methods) would be perfect
    • I can't get the items to look nice. The configuration limits are too... simple. Would be nice to be able to use Masque (old ButtonFacade) for this purpose, as I like my UI consistent (I'm already using masque/buttonfacade for my action bars and buff displays, and probably a huge userbase already has it installed.. else they probably don't mind the default skin)
    • The search "bar" takes so much space. So is the money/token one and the menu bar. Should be able to customize it more, so it fits in one single bars
    • The menu icons are really ugly and I can't set a border for them :-/

  • #3794

    This addon bugs me sometimes. Its about the toggle location feature and the guildbank.

    After visiting the guildbank on all my characters I can see the inventory of the guildbank by using the toggle feature. After some weeks have past, when I use the toggle fature to see guilbank inventory all I see is a lot of questionmarks and no inventory. its like it looses its data over time. Very anoying. Now I have to revisit the guildbank on all my characters again.


    When I use the seach feature and seach for something I know is in the guildbank, it does tell me in the tooltip that its palced in the guildbank. It just doesnt show in the toogle feature.

  • #3795

    actually its your wow cache thats been lost.  the items are still there, the question mark proves that, but i dont store the icon for it, that comes from the item cache.

    simplest way to "fix" it is to open the vault and then mouse over each item - close the vault and then open it again, the icons should now be there (i think)

    alternatively open the search window - youll notice that most of those are empty of names and icons as well, just scroll to the bottom in there and it will start looking things up at which point opening your vault (while offline) will then show the correct icons.

  • #3793

    Menus are all over the place, running off the screen, really hard to set things up. Please update, loving this add on so far other than that

    Guild Bank

    i am the GM of my guild and i like to view who is putting in and taking out stuff (LOG) but i cant seem to figure out how to get those buttons to show up on this mod. so far i've needed to disable Arkinventory to see whats actually going on. any advice?!


  • #3792

    Right click on one of the bags at the bottom of the guild bank view and select log :)

  • #3788
    On the default bag screen, there is a search box. When you type the name, it will highlight the item(s) by matching the typed char strings. That search box keep disappearing on me.. and I am not sure why or how it disappeared. Please let me know how to get back that default search box.
