About HandyNotes

https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/x-click-but21.gif

Handy Notes for your maps. This addon is intended to be a small and simple replacement for Cartographer_Notes and functions in a similar manner.

Use /handynotes to access options.

You can add notes to the maps in 3 ways:

  • Alt-RightClick on the world map to add a note.
  • Use "/hnnew" without the quotes to add a note at your current location.
  • Use "/hnnew x,y" without the quotes to add a note at location x,y on your current zone's map.

HandyNotes supports plugins that other authors can write to display their own set of notes on the map. See this link for a list of such addons: http://www.wowace.com/search/?search=handynotes

Changes from v1.1.6 to v1.2.0

  • Fix HandyNotes to use Astrolabe-1.0 instead of Astrolabe-0.4.
  • Place the New Handy Note dialog box above the World Map by parenting to it if the World Map is open.
  • Add a 6th optional return value "dungeonLevel" to the pluginHandler:GetNodes() API. This value is used if it is different from the input dungeonLevel, similar to the 2nd return's "mapFile".
  • HandyNotes plugin authors will need to be update their plugins to use Astrolabe-1.0 and its new API that has changed from using (C, Z) pairs to (mapID, level) pairs. HandyNotes has provided some additional functions to help with this (these functions will not work for instance and BG maps):
    • HandyNotes:GetMapFiletoMapID(mapFile)
    • HandyNotes:GetMapIDtoMapFile(mapID)
    • HandyNotes:GetZoneToMapID(zone)

Changes from v1.1.5 to v1.1.6

  • Update TOC Interface to 40000.
  • Add optional AddonLoader delayed load support.
  • Use latest version of Ace3 and Astrolabe libraries.

Changes from v1.1.4 to v1.1.5

  • Use latest version of Astrolabe library which has Hrothgar's Landing data.
  • Play nice with Carbonite which is trying to fake as being Cartographer.
  • Add HandyNotes to the Blizzard Interface Addon Options too.
  • When quest objectives are enabled, the HandyNotes icons on the world map will now show their tooltips again on mouseover.
  • When creating or editing a note on a map with dungeon levels, you may now choose which dungeon level the note appears in or choose to have it appear on ALL dungeon levels.
  • HandyNotes will now pass as 3rd parameter the dungeon map level when it calls pluginHandler:GetNodes(mapFile, minimap, dungeonLevel). Existing user notes in HandyNotes will still display on all dungeon map levels, but new notes will be level specific.
  • Remove compatibility code with all WoW versions earlier than patch 3.1.
  • Convert to use wowace localization system at http://www.wowace.com/addons/handynotes/localization/
  • Notes without a title will now show "(No Title)" as the tooltip title rather than have no tooltip on mouseover.
  • Add the ability to create/change/copy/delete profiles in HandyNotes. HandyNotes was already using Ace3 profiles, just that this wasn't exposed.
  • Add ability to enable and disable plugins from showing on the map in the HandyNotes options.
  • Add a wider range of icons to select from.

    Hi, I don't seem to be able to delete notes.  For that matter, right clicking on them in my mini map (they only show up there) doesn't bring any kind of menu at all.  Am I doing something wrong?

    Whenever I visit the Auction House in Stormshield I get this (first time in session; not for subsequent):

    if you install http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/slash-magic you can make a new command and paste the following code in the command window and you will be able to hide / show the notes and temp toggle them

    I named my command hn so
    /hn clear       will remove the notes until map reopens
    /hn on           (if notes are off turns them on until a reload or off command)
    /hn off           (if notes are on turns them off until a reload or on command)

    Slash Magic will auto format the following code. just cut/paste, save, and click enable for the command

     

    msg = string.lower(msg)
    if msg == "clear" then
    HandyNotes:OnDisable()
    elseif msg == "on" then
    HandyNotes:Enable()
    elseif msg == "off" then
    HandyNotes:Disable()
    else
    print("Handy Notes quick settings")
    print("clear = clears notes until map reopened")
    print("on = enable notes")
    print("off = disable notes")
    print("Settings will revert to default on a reload")
    end

    Very useful, just what i was looking for!

  • #250

    Should we post things we find that aren't on the list here?

  • #255

    Post what kind of things? Other HN plugins?

    No, I meant stuff I find in the world not in the addon.

  • #247

    Is there some option to toggle HandyNotes showing on the minimap? On my main char, they show on both World Map and Minimap (which is how I prefer it), but on my alt characters, they only show up on the World Map and not the Minimap. But I can't find an option to change it.

  • #249

    My friend had this same problem, he deleted handynotes, from his addons folder, redownloaded from here and reinstalled it and it started working properly for him. Hopefully that does the trick for you! Remember to always delete addons before updated them, sometimes stuff changes and things like this happen.

  • #245

    hi,

    I've recently installed wow again and all my addons but for some reason handy notes do not show up on my map. The weird thing is on dreanor it does show up everything on my map such as rare mobs etc,but in azeroth it doesn't. has anyone had this ? or does anyone know a fix ? so i can have all the handy notes on my azeroth map aswell ( seeing as i am starting a fresh char i need this )

    The default Handynotes does NOT come with any pre-made notes. It's a clean slate ready for you to use. If you installed the plugin DraenorTreasures that might be why they are showing up there. But, as it states, it only has notes for Draenor. 

    However, if you haven't installed the plugin it's possible you picked up the "treasure maps" from the archology vendor which adds Bliz made mapnotes for the treasures. 

    If you are wakling around and see a big white skull on your minimap and find a rare there then that's just the default blizz notes they added for rares since MoP.

    i noticed that the sunken treasure in gorgrond which is still bugged today isn't showing on the map anymore. Is that intended? Also I like that the faction unobtainable loot isnt showing anymore, it was driving me crazy :D

  • #243

    i downloaded this addon and it is not showing up on my addon list, can anyone help me?

  • #254

    after downloading did you install it? If you don't use the Curse Installer then you will have to unzip the file and put it in the "Interface\Addons" folder
