    So I've noticed whenever I enter into combat, chat is disabled. Is there anyway I can turn this feature off?

    Re: CleanUI and masque

    I have manually installed both CleanUI and Masque yet the buttons aren't changing.  Probably something simple but I can't figure it out.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

  • #522


    i don't know why, but i had to install ButtonFacade, too, to get it work.

  • #525

    Hi. Did you choose some borders in the masque settings? There is another addon called with a special CleanUI layout. My favorite is the grey border...

  • #524

    No still not working even after getting Buttonfacade.  

  • #523

    Ok will try that...thanks for the fast response.


  • #520

    So, wait a minute...I'm somehow missing a lot of features (settings, options), that are shown in your screenshots, plus the neat borders you added to the chat-frame and minimap are completely missing.

    Die Fenster sind einfach nur schwarz, was gelinde gesagt "bescheiden" aussieht :P

    Kann es sein, dass dieses Ui besser mit dem deutschen Spielclient funktioniert?^^ Mir fehlt z.B. das "AddOn Control Center" komplett. Oder sind der veränderte Hintergrund und die fehlenden Einstellungsmöglichkeiten  "Features" der neuen Version?^^

    Overall great work nonetheless ;)

    Adding some screens to document the mess (getting some mixup of German/English text in my Ui aswell).

    Hello, I really like this clear minimalistic sytle UI.

    I have some questions.

    1.How do I move and hide or move on to show the micro menu if I disable minimap change?

    2.The Xp bar seems only show partial, I can only see like top half of the xp bar, changing the height of xp bar seems does not work.

    3. Some characters' 3d protrait are full body  while some are head part, and some head protrait have broken images.

    4.I know the nameplate has highlight target function, but I would love to see it works with TargetNameplateIndicator.

    5.If you could add a little bit animation to health and mana bars that would be awesome.

    Thank you!

    1. ctrl + right mouse button
    2. do you have a screenshot?
    3. i'll check this issue
    4. i don't know TargetNameplateIndicator, but i'll check its functionallity
    5. maybe... I reuse the blizzard health and mana bars. only the layout is new. all other functionality is blizzard.

    1. same solution as user_6672. 
    2. the xp bar is only 2 or 3 px high. i think, it's enough. 
  • #518

    Thank you for replying.

    1. How do I hide the micro menu and make it to mouse move on to show?


    It does not show the blue exp bar, and only like half top of the numbers.

    I tried deleted all the CleanUI files in wtf, but it's still the same.

    For some reason, I cannot move the unit frames. Any way you can just add back the battle position? Awesome job. Just need this last piece repaired. Ideas?


  • #516

    Figured it out, for me any way. My cursor had to be on the portrait when pressing control key to move the frame. Simple enough.

  • #511


    The micro menu is partly hidden underneath the bottom right action bar. It's because (in my interface at least) 6 buttons of the bottom right action bar is stuffed below the top 6; which means the bottom 6 now occupy parts of the micro menu's location.


    Is there a way to configure the buttons so that they don't crunch up like that? Or should I just disable this part of the addon and use bartender (though bartender has it's bugs too; mainly with not showing hotkeys).

    The micro button menu should be located at the minimap. you can disable the minimap changes, but in this case the micro button bar is movable. In your case there is something very strange, maybe a problem with another addon, e.g. BarTender or other action button addons. You can try to delete the CleanUI configuration: go to the wtf folder and delete any CleanUI.lua file in the wtf folder.
