    The tracking button isn't automatically grabbed by MBF, and I can't understand why. At one point I had MoveAnything to move it to the bottom of the minimap but have since deleted that entry in MA and the Blizzard Map refuses to relinquish it to MBF. Until coming here, I didn't know you could do /mbf add while having the mouse over the button, but really my question is, isn't there a config option in the GUI to do this? I thought there was but it's been well over a year since I had set up MBF, lol.

    I should also mention that I'm using Sexymap, but it was not enabled for this 'debugging' of the tracking button. I don't want all the Blizzard map icons on my Sexymap, so usually I have it hide them all except the tracking button. If I tell it to not handle them, MBF picks them up, can I have MBF hide them or will /MBF remove put them back on Sexymap/Blizzard Map?

    How do you set the anchor to top or bottom instead of left or right?

  • #1256

    Just wondering if there is any way to have the anchor locked and shown at the same time? At the moment I have it unlocked, because everytime I lock it, it disappears. This is with the display option "Hide Nothing" for "Hide when Locked"

  • #1253

    I have just a simple question.  Is there any way to get the old "transparent" anchor back?  I know I can make the whole thing disappear if I use the minimap button to open MBF and close it, but then I have a button on my minimap, which I don't care for.  That's why I have MBF =)

    The new red one kinda just clashes with my UI.  I know, maybe I'm a little uptight.  But in the end, it's all about aesthetics, yeah?  It's why we download addons like MBF, to keep our UI neat and clean.

    Thanks for all your work on this addon!

    You can change the color of the entire box in the options.

  • #1255

    Thanks for the reply.  I checked again, and found that the color options in settings only allow you to change the color of the actual background for the buttons, not the anchor.

    I'm talking about the color of the anchor, which either used to be transparent by default, or we used to be able to change the color.  I do not remember which.

    Here's my example:

    MBF never used to collect the default wow minimap icons just the addon ones.

    It used to leave mail / zoom and dungeon eye on the minimap but now its collecting everything and I dont know how to stop it from doing the default blizzard minimap icons.

  • #1250

    In the MBF interface settings under Gathering, untick "Collect Buttons". I think that puts the blizzard buttons back on the minimap.

  • #1251

    lol I must be tired, im going off to bed hahaha.


    Thanks mate.

    3.1.9 is uploaded just waiting for approval.  If there are any other issues please let me know so I can fix them.

    martinboy - I know you're still having an issue.  But I can't reproduce it atm.  Let me know what addons you have installed so I can try and recreate your environment.

    I've also heard that ElvUI doesn't work with it and I'm looking into it.

  • #1248

    I never had the problem before patch. The problematic buttons in my case,  are Atlasloot, Bartender4, Bigwigs, Skada, Professionsvault and Bugsack. It happends very random. Sometimes the black layer is gone when logging in, sometimes not.

    I use Shadowed Unit Frames for the UI.

    I found out, that if I via MBF display - buttonskin choose another skin, then all buttons turn visible again, but as soon as I reload UI, the black icons return.

    Will this be fixed too?

  • #1244

    That was a bug from an older version that was fixed.  If it's doing it again I'd have to know what buttons are not displaying correctly.
