    WOW, I just saw this addon.

    I'm going to try ElvUI again.  You've added most of the things I wanted.

    I hope this works/looks as good as it sounds.

  • #11

    As soon as I enabled ElvUI enhanced it erases all my elvui profiles and settings. Is there a way around this?

  • #9

    I just had to say THANK YOU so much for this addon. It is so perfect and includes practically everything that a player needs to know, to go with ElvUI. It's awesome and beautifully integrated. Thank you, thank you! Keep up the AWESOME work!

  • #8

    Is there a way to remove the backdrop from the minimap button bar?

  • #21

    This has been recently added, download the latest version.

  • #6

    The Equipment Set Overlay keeps turning itself back on, even if it's unchecked.

  • #5

    Using version 1.65

    This is a great addon and most features should be standard in Elvui TBH :)
    One bug i want to point out is the Spec change.

    changing spec will change my gear but breaks the profile change of Elvui itself.
    Changing from dps to heal i want my UI almost clean which works when i disable ElvUI_Enhanced.
    but then the gear does not change.

    Hope this gets fixed as i realy like to keep using this addition to Elvui.

  • #22

    Elv made some changes to the profile code and seems he solved an issue with it. check out the latest version and let HIM know if it has worked.

  • #3

    Message: ...ddOns\ElvUI_Enhanced\modules\unitframes\healglow.lua:133: table index is nil Time: 06/04/13 01:33:49 Count: 3 Stack: (tail call): ? ...ddOns\ElvUI_Enhanced\modules\unitframes\healglow.lua:133: in function `?' ...ore\libs\CallbackHandler-1.0\CallbackHandler-1.0.lua:147: in function <...ore\libs\CallbackHandler-1.0\CallbackHandler-1.0.lua:147> [string "safecall Dispatcher[1]"]:4: in function <[string "safecall Dispatcher[1]"]:4> [C]: ?

    If its me i dont know what i did, at first i turned Healglow on, saw that error message then turned it off and still got the no idea...lots of neat features so i would like to keep using this add-on but i wont if that error wont go away, i did notice that the font in the chat windows i didnt find the settings to change it. The chat is tiny and can be a bit tough to read...for me anyways. Is there a settings for that somewhere i missed to enlarge the chat window font?
