Q: How do i access the Configuration?
A: You can open the configuration with the Slash Commands (/bt or /bartender) or through the Bartender4 LDB plugin.

Q: Can Bartender4 import settings from Bartender3?
A: No. Those two mods are too different to be able to import settings.

Q: Where are my keybindings? And how do i bind new keys?
A: BT3 Keybindings will not be ported over either, you have to use the new KeyBound to re-bind your keys. You can access KeyBound by its slash command (/kb) or through the button in the BT4 config. Hover a button, press key → voila!

Q: CyCircled Support? I like my button skins? :(
A: No reason to cry! There is a sparkling new skinning addon/library out there! ButtonFacade is way easier to work with as a action-bar author, and its easier to write skins for it too! Alot of cyCircled Skins have already been ported to ButtonFacade, and more are on their way! After installing ButtonFacade just use its configuration to change the skin of the BT4 buttons (/bf)

Q: How do i disable the snapping of the bars?
A: Currently, you can temporarily override the snapping by holding down the Shift Key while moving your bars, or uncheck the option in the popup when your bars are unlocked.

    The "Button Lock" feature doesn't work when you're holding Shift.  This is a problem for macros which use the "[mod:shift]" function if you're wondering why someone would hold down shift in combat.

    New buttons and Bars in MOP

    I use my map in the center middle, so when I go into the new instances some of the buttons are hidden behind the map - an example is the meditate button to remove hate during the Shadow pan fight.  I also get the same issue with the pet battle bar. 

    My question is, what are those two buttons/ bars called so that I have the ability to move them from behind my map.


    Thanks - great addon

  • #4555

    I have a problem aswell :s with bartender and my druid. We have 6 stances so i use too bar 1 the "state configuration" for it.

    But i like to have my main spells as default and also in my moonkin specc. So under bar 1 i have these things:

    Default bar: page 1     -     bear form: page 4     -     cat form: page 9     -     prowl: page 10     -     moonkin form: page 1     -     tree: page 6

    So you would think that outside any stance i would have page 1 where page 1 needs to be but that doesnt work. default and moonkin form are 2 different pages but the same configurate.
    Also when i change the default bar state from page 1 to page 10 it doesnt switch in my bars..

    So i dont know if this is a bug or something with the default bar state?? but its really annoying

    Pls remake action bars in Pet battle.

  • #4553

    I concur with this. I would absolutely love to move the pet battle action bar from it's default location, and bartender4 does not allow me to do this. 

  • #4551

    Having issues with switching Monk stances causing the Stance bar to vanish.  When I'm in Fierce Tiger, the Stance bar stays there fine.  When I switch to Wise Serpent, the Stance bar disappears.  I type /bar and unlock everything, and the Stance bar is set right where I left it.  It's like it's set to fade out or something, but I checked the visibility settings and it's not set to fade or hide at any time.  This doesn't happen with my warrior's stances, my druid's forms, or my hunter's aspects, so I'm not sure what to do to make this work properly with my monk.  Rather annoying having to open up my spellbook and click to shift back into Fierce Tiger after being in Wise Serpent. ^^;;

    As soon as I open the macro window all my buttons stop showing tooltips even after closing macro window.  To get them to show again I have to /reload.  

  • #4548

    button lock is not working, i have checked, double checked and triple checked that the box is ticked and it is, but I am still throwing my buttons off my bar while in combat and have also checked out of combat and you only have to click hold button and it moves!!!

  • #4554

    Go into blizz menu, interface, action bars and make sure lock action bars is checked there too


  • #4547

    Mine currently is not working at all, even with all other addons disabled.  No bars, nothing showing up in my interface menu.

    Ok well addon caused me a bad problem yesterday in the MOP expansion. I had to disable this because it caused my quest not to work. I could not do the first quest a Kings command. the very first quest. took me over 1 hour to figure out it was Bartender4 that was causing confliction. Basically this addon would not allow me to ''Complete quests'' so now i am having to look for an alternative custom bars setup. Shame really coz i love this addon. Can design where i want my buttons,

    Ever since the launch of Mists at 12am PDT, My bartender keybinding for my 1 key bar 1 will not work now.  I have it set to Tab key which is a button on my mouse.  Outside the game, it works as intended but inside the game, whenever I press the key for tab on my mouse, my number 1 key does not work so I had to keybind it to 1 on my keypad but its frustrating! Please help! Any ideas what it may be causing this? I disabled all out of date addons.  I remember something similar happening for Cata as well.

  • #4543

    Ok well I figured it out, I unchecked run as admin in WoW properties and I quit using the launcher and have instead opened the directory and running the exe file straight out of it.  It now works! Hope this helps others with same issue!

  • #4538

    I noticed today on my paladin while doing a burning crusade quest that I had no pet bar and couldn't enable one.   I had to take control of some cannons and by doing so the cannon becomes my "pet".  No bar so I couldn't complete the quest.  Had to disable Bartender4 temporarily to do the quest.
