About MapNotes

Allows you to add notes to the world map and minimap helping you keep track of interesting locations. MapNotes also provides a Plugin interface for other AddOns to take advantage of the note making ability. AlphaMap(Fans Update) uses this interface to allow Note creation on AlphaMap Maps of Instances, BattleGrounds, and World Boss Maps. This version of MapNotes comes with in-built support for creation of notes on Atlas maps, also using this Plugin interface. For these purpose MapNotes offers the following main functions: 1. Marking notes on the WorldMap 2. Showing one of these notes on the MiniMap (see MiniNote) 3. Allows any other AddOn to use MapNotes note creation ability to mark notes on frames within their own AddOn : - Marking notes on AlphaMap (Fan's Update) Instance maps - Marking notes on Atlas maps

"/tloc" can be used to toggle this AddOns minimap coordinates instead of Thottbott's minimap coordinates. NOTE : PLEASE still use "/mn -tloc xx,yy" to place a Thottbott marker on the map. "/tloc" ONLY toggles Minimap Coordinates.

Should be compatible with both Cartographer and MetaMap, although you may no longer be able to create notes on the map with the in-built functionality provided by those AddOns - only with the functionality provided by MapNotes (Fan's Update).


Fast Note Creation/Editing/Deleting

- <Control>+<Alt>+Right-click on a MAP/FRAME to create a Quicknote at that point

- <Control>+<Alt>+Right-click on a NOTE to quickly go to the note Editing Frame

- <Control>+<Alt>+Left-clicking to drag NOTES to new positions

- <Alt>+Right-click on a NOTE to toggle it as a Minimap note

- <Alt>+<Shift>+DOUBLE Right-click on a note to quickly delete it.

- <Control>+<Shift>+Right-click will create a temporary blue Group note on a map If created on a World map, then it will also be displayed in the Minimap for you to track If in a Raid group, then the note will be shared with other Raid members who have MapNotes installed Otherwise, if in a Party, then the note will be shared with the Party members who have MapNotes installed Otherwise, its just your own quick temporary marker ;)

Slash Commands

/mapnote OR /mapnotes OR /mn Use without any other parameters to see which version of MapNotes is installed, and access the list of available Slash Commands. Otherwise can be used to insert a Map Note by a slash command (which you can create in the Send Menu), see Readme.txt for Details

/mn -allow OR /mn -a Allows you to receive the next note, even if you have disabled receiving in the options. If invoked with no parameters, it will toggle the current state.

/mn -automini Shows the next note created (using any method) as a MiniNote and also puts it on the WorldMap. If invoked with no parameters, it will toggle the current state.

/mn -allmini Toggle all MapNotes off/on as Mininotes (Keybinding also available)

/mn -tloc tbX,tbY Sets a "Thottbot location" on the map. Use it with no arguments to toggle it off. See the Section on Formatting of X,Y Coordinates

/mn -q [icon] [name] Adds a note at your current location, icon and name are optional (icon any number from 0 to 9, AddOns/MapNotes/POIIcons/Icon#.tga) If no [name] is passed, then the Note will be named based on the MiniMap Text, and the second/third lines will be populated with more zone information and/or the default QuickNote text.

/mn -qtloc xx,yy [icon] [name] See the Section on Formatting of X,Y Coordinates Adds a note on the map you are currently on at the given thottbot location, icon and name are optional (icon any number from 0 to 9, AddOns/MapNotes/POIIcons/Icon#.tga)

/mn -s [search text] If you want to search for a note, to see if one exists, or where it is, then you can use this command, and MapNotes will print out a report in the chat window, displaying the names of all maps which have a note containing that text

/mn -hl [note name] If you have lots of notes and want to clearly identify a single one on a map, or if you want a certain note to remain highlighted, then use this command and they will be displayed with a green circle around them. If there are several notes with that name or containing that text, then they will ALL be highlighted. The note name does not have to be case sensitive, and doesn't have to be an exact match - all notes containing the [note name] text will be highlighted. If the EXACT NAME is specified (not case-sensitive), the note will also be marked as a MiniNote on the Minimap

/mn -mapc Toggle the display of Player and Cursor Coordinates on the World Map Control-Left-Click and drag the coordinates to move them to a different position on the World Map if you are not happy with the default.

/mn -minic Toggle the display of Player coordinates below the Minimap.

/mn -t [icon] [name] Creates a quicknote at the Player's current location if the Player has no target. If the Player does have a target, then it will create a note for that target at the Player's current location, icon and name are optional (icon any number from 0 to 9, AddOns/MapNotes/POIIcons/Icon#.tga)

/mn -m Creates a note for the Player's target at the Player's current location. OR Merges the details for the Player's current target in to a Map Note that has already been created at the Player's current location. MUST have targetted a Player/NPC/Mob for this to work.

/mn -scale [0.5 - 1.5] The size of MapNotes Menus and Frames are now fixed no matter what the scale of the World Map or other AddOn Map being used. This command can be used to change the default size of MapNotes Menus and Frames if the user finds it too small or large. The default value is 0.7 Therefore "/mn -scale 1.0" will make the Menus and Frames appear larger than they do by default.

/mn -undelete Will undelete the last deleted MapNote.

Key Bindings

QuickNote/TargetNote

Creates a quicknote at the Player's current location if the Player has no target. If the Player does have a target, then it will create a note for that target at the Player's current location. -OR CLICK MINIMAP COORDINATES- If you are NOT targetting anything, then ALT-Left-Click on the Minimap Coordinates to create a QuickNote. If you are targetting something, then ALT-Left-Click to create a Target note with details about the current target at the PLAYER'S current location - you will be warned if you are too near to an existing note to create a new note. (Slash Command "/mn -t" also available)

TargetNote/MergeNote

Creates a note for the Player's target at the Player's current location. OR Merges the details for the Player's current target in to a Map Note that has already been created at the Player's current location. MUST have targetted a Player/NPC/Mob for this to work. -OR CLICK MINIMAP COORDINATES- If you are targetting something, then you may also ALT-Right-Click on the Minimap Coordinates if you wish to create a note for your Target at the PLAYER'S current location. However, if a MapNote already exists at Player's location, then the details will be merged with the existing note. (Slash Command "/mn -m" also available)

IMPORTANT NOTE ON THE IMPORT FUNCTIONS BELOW

All of the functions below are mainly designed for people who have just installed MapNotes (Fan's Update). If you have been using this version of MapNotes for some time already, and have your own notes, then these functions may overwrite your existing notes. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

/script MapNotes_ImportCarto() NOTE: only works with English localisation currently If you want to move from Cartographer 2 to MapNotes, then log in to the game with both AddOns enabled, ust the above command, after which you will receive notification in the chat window on how many notes have been imported.

/MapNotes_Import_MetaMap If you want to move from MetaMapNotes to MapNotes, then log in to the game with both AddOns enabled, use the above command, after which you will receive notification in the chat window on how many notes have been imported; Then log out, and disable MetaMap. Don't try to use MapNotes at the same time as MetaMap for any other purposes, as the results may be unpredictable

/MapNotes_Import_AlphaMap If you have AlphaMap installed, and want to convert the in-built Instance and World Boss notes in to MapNotes notes, then use the above command, and you will see a message in the chat window informing you of how many notes have been imported in to MapNotes. This does NOT import Battleground notes by default, as AlphaMap's in built Battleground functionality works best without MapNotes overlaying the BG Objectives. NOTE: You don't have to import notes from AlphaMap, to make MapNotes on AlphaMap Instance/Battleground/WorldBoss maps. You can create any notes you like manually.

/MapNotes_Import_AlphaMapBG As mentioned above, the basic "/MapNotes_Import_AlphaMap" command does not import Battleground notes by default. If you do want to import AlphaMap Battlegournd map notes, then use this command to do so.

/MapNotes_Import_CTMapMod If you want to move from using CTMapMod to MapNotes (Fan's Update), then log in to the game with both AddOns enabled, use the above command, after which you will receive notification in the chat window on how many notes have been imported; Then log out, and disable CTMapMod.

Release notes for MapNotes version 6.09.50001 Mists of Pandaria - 4 November 2012
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There were three tickets raised for v6.08 within hours of release. Once of them
involved non-persistence of MapNotes options across a reload (thanks Dridzt) and
I thought that so important that I should release a fic as soon as possible.

These are the fixes

- Some of the values set with the Options dialogue were not properly being
  restored after logging out. This was because of the design of the options
  data whereby a missing entry indicated that that entry was 'enabled'. I have
  changed MapNotes so that *all* options how have an entry that says explicitly
  whether it is enabled or disabled

- Zooming the World Map out to the World view showing the whole of Azeroth caused
  the addon to crash (thanks sykopat). This was because there is no map information
  available from either LibMapData for this map, and Astrolabe forces an exception
  if it is asked to provide it. I have made it impossible to add notes to either
  the World map or the Cosmic map (Azeroth plus Outland)

- sykopat reported a crash on trying to delete note by creator. I haven't been able
  to reproduce this, but see that it was executing code in the Yatlas addon that
  hooked a function in MapNotes code, so the problm may be there instead. I have
  made the parameter checking more robust and added some diagnostic code to this
  section

    How did you get it to show again? Deleted the addon and reinstalled, but the notes are still invisible...
  • #451
    I have just uploaded v6.02, which should be a lot nicer to use.

    If any bugs appear in this version (and I will be surprised if there are none) I will provide a fix for them straight away - hopefully within a couple of days. meanwhile I shall be getting v7 working for a beta release when it appears stable.

    If there are any problems at all with v6.02 please let me know. I am interested in anything at all, from the obvious crashes down to oddities and mistakes in the localization, or just something that doesn't seem right. I also want to know if you have a desire to see anything put into the new version, as I am now in a position to implement pretty much anything reasonable.

    Keep in touch.

    Just to let you know where things are with MapNotes 6.02. I had found a lot of inaccuracies and bugs in the icon placement logic, and planned to change MapNotes to use LibMapData instead of reinventing the wheel. After a lot of work I have decided that Atrolabe is a better bet, and have had to undo the changes I had made.

    Since it will be a while before I can offer the new version, I am creating another interim release that will be mostly useable. Apart from fixing bugs, it will include a change I have made to the note editor to colour the text the chosen colour. I have also found that you are supposed to be able to drag notes around the map, and have fixed that functionality.

    Keep watching for the next release :)

    I am having a different issue. I am seeing my map notes in other zones than which they were made. Go figure.
  • #445
    I can't imagine how this could happen. It may help if you are willing to wipe your notes database and start again from scratch, but I can't promise anything. Entering

    /run MapNotes_Data_Notes = {}

    will do that, but I suggest you backup the MapNotes.lua Saved Variables file first! If this problem persists then I suggest you send me a copy of that Saved variables file and I will take a look. If you're not clear how to find the file then get in touch.
  • #449
    Thanks for the quick response. I considered wiping the notes but wanted to check here before I did that. I'll make a back up and try it out.
  • #442
    Same as Metalraider, get errors when i port to deepholme. I also can not access any of the extra icons.
  • #444
    There is a problem with all zones in The Maelstrom. A fix is already in place, and I am working on putting together a release within the next few days.
  • #441
    I keep getting this error whenever I hearth to Deepholm:

  • #448
    Thanks Raider. This is a known problem with a known fix. All you have to do is wait a few days for the next bugfix release.
  • #440
    im getting many errors, plus, I have to manually uncheck "minimap coords" every time the game loads.

    Hope you're having a great year so far! Thanks again for this addon!
  • #446
    I have a fix for the problem with the coords setting. Can you tell me a little more about the other 'many errors'?

    Thank you for the good wishes. Apart from losing a disk drive and having my WoW account hacked I'm having a good time :)

    Watch here for an imminent release fixing a few bugs. I also have grand designs for MapNotes later in the year.
  • #439
    I don't know why but my framerate drops from 60FPS to 17FPS when I enable this addon... Event if this is the only one intalled.

    I've got a fresh install BTW.
  • #436
    When will mapnotes be updated again?
  • #438
    it was updated last week how often do you expect a mod to be updated? Author has enough real life stuff to deal with without having to deal with impatient mod users. if your that hard up fix it yourself.
