FAQ

Q: How do i access the Configuration?
A: You can open the configuration with the Slash Commands (/bt or /bar) 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 pet bar for bartender4 is not working for me. It's for my hunter. It appears but clicking on the buttons don't do anything. Please fix this.
  • #4023
    None of my spell tooltips show on the bartender bars. Is there some way to enable tooltips to show? I could not find the option in the menu anywhere.
  • #4022
    Can someone explain to me how the syntax for binding bt4 buttons work in the bindings-cache.wtf file?
    For example, what does
    "bind Q CLICK BT4Button13:LeftButton"
    mean?

    Hello. I made a post on the WoW forums about a problem I've experienced with Bartender. Here is the original location: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/3123318225

    And here is the text, which I am going to copy so that you can see what the problem is:

    ***
    In Patch 4.1, Blizzard introduced this feature:

    "Spells bound to a key now start to be cast when the button is pressed down by default, instead of waiting for the key to go up. This is an option that can be turned off in the Interface menu under Combat. Mouse clicking has not changed and operates on mouse click up."

    This feature had previously been used by players as part of a separate addon: Snowfall Keypress.

    Fast forward to now, and it appears that Bartender is stopping this feature from working. I've tested it very carefully, making sure I hadn't unchecked it by accident. It works when Bartender is disabled only.

    As you can imagine, this is cause for worry with me. I'd gotten very used to the "action on key down" playstyle. Having it removed spells a DPS loss for me.

    Has anyone else experienced this? What do you suggest doing?
    ***

    Please do look into this!
  • #4043

    not sure if you are still having this problem, but Bartender has its own options for this.  Just go to the bartender options, highlight "Bars" in the left column and check the box for "Toggle actions on key press instead of release".  And it should work, it does for me at least ;)

    Hope this helps!

  • #4019
    add:
    ofc i activate in the config the "blizz-vehicle gui"
  • #4017
    I cannot use modifier keys, so if I try to bind a key to Shift + M, so that when I want to use an ability I need to press Shift + M, it does not work. If I press Shift without the M it uses the ablitity and vise versa. How am I able to get around this? It is not only a problem for Shift + M but for all keys that I try to bind in conjunction with another key.
  • #4016
    I've had the same problems with the vehicle bar, same as others, and it isn't 'fixed', regardless of what fixes I try.

    I HAVE noticed that even with Blizzard vehicle UI disabled and bar4's enabled, that "Hide [vehicle bar] when vehicle bar is in use" is checked. And greyed out, so it can't be unchecked. maybe THAT is the reason I have to abandon quest chains by force-exiting to dismount.
  • #4015
    i turn on the addon and it hides my bags except for my main bag for all my other toons?? is there something im missing to show the bags?
  • #4012
    I have my vehicle bar turned on, but when I am a passnger on another player's mount (any class, mine or theirs) there is no dismount button for me. I turned on every bar inc. those i dont use and bliz art bar yet there is no option do i have to get them to dismount me, this issue is enough to stop me using this addon, is there a fix for it? I have 6 toons and the same problem on each, i turn off bartender and the button is there
  • #4013
    I've got the same problem. 5 is binded to leave vehicle option. Just use it with num lock on.
