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.

    i need a minmap button or a titan plugin for enable/disable handy notes with on klick

     

  • #294

    This. I need this.

  • #292

    I dunno if this problem comes from you or the modules I added for handynotes, but the icons on my minimaps are blinking crazily and it's getting a bit annoying, I have to turn them off else I go crazy

    but then I'm left guessing around for where the exact spot is for each icon from the big map...

    I got handynotes, handynotes_draenor and handnotes_musicrolls

  • #291

    this might be obvious to some players, but i thought i would post something that has helped me out while using handynotes with not being able to move them in-game anymore (with [CTRL] + [SHIFT] + left mouse drag):

    1. if you are comfortable editing . LUA files with a simple text editor, you can put that handy note just where you want it exactly to be, but this must be done of course when you are not in-game. 
    2. place your handynote approximately where you want it to be in-game, name it, and choose an icon.
    3. take note of where you would like it to actually be, by using your mouse and finding the location on the map or perhaps going to wowhead and finding out the precise location of the in-game item.
    4. open HandyNotes.lua file in your SavedVariables folder with any text editor.
    5. look for the map name where you placed the note (within the text of the .LUA file), for example if it is in orgrimmar:

    ["Orgrimmar"] = {
    [57174717] = {
    ["title"] = "test",
    ["cont"] = false,
    ["level"] = 1,
    ["icon"] = 4,
    ["desc"] = "test description",
    },

    the value [57174717] refers to the coordinates on that particular map in hundredths
    (2 decimal places).

    57174717 translates to x=57.17, y=47.17

    • lastly, input (replace the numbers) of that exact locaton you want to move the handynote to, so for example if you wanted it to be at (25,35) in orgrimmar, you would replace:

    57174717 with 25003500

    Feature Request:

    Locations of all recruitable follower events.

  • #283

    Is there a 4.3.4 version?

     

  • #281

    Hi,

    Can you please add the dot icons from the minimap icon set?

    http://i.imgur.com/3RnjA.png

    Especially green and red ones. I tried doing that myself but couldn't do it.

    The current icons in the addon are very difficult to notice on the map for me and I like the small dot icons the minimap uses.

    Also, when I view a map fullscreen and then alt + right click, the create note window appears behind the map which is invisible which forces me to close to map to edit the note.

    Thanks!

  • #282

    ooh those would be very nice!

  • #280

    The new handynotes is no longer placing icons for me on the maps. The lunar festival ones seem to work, but nothing in Draenor.

  • #279

    wäre schön, wenn die findbaren schätze von pandaria eingebaut werden.
