    MBF only stuck in upper right corner for my Monk healer (not my rogue and possibly not my other non-healer alts), and this started before I downloaded the latest MBF update (sorry, I can't remember what other addon was updated just before issue started) .

    While logged on as Monk, I clicked Interface | Addons | MBF |Defaults | These Settings, and then MBF becomes stuck at its default location (better than upper right :). If I choose different MBF Profile (I was using an MBF Profile for Monk healer), MBF goes back to being stuck in upper right. If I choose Default Profile then MBF goes back to stuck in default location. Disabling all addons but MBF did not help (I suspected the Chinchilla Minimap addon, but I could not isolate this issue to Chinchilla ). When I left clicked the MBF anchor to move MBF, Swatter caught what is below.

    I run many addons. If others see this MBF stuck issue with addons that they know match mine (see Swatter output below), please add a comment!

    Same problem UnMovable in new update.- Rolled back to 3.1.9 and movable

    I updated and got the same problem as the box was stuck in the upper right corner and could not be moved.  Reset UI, deleted LUA nothing worked to make it movable.


    I downloaded and reinstalled the prior version 3.1.9 and it is back movable.

  • #1280

    I'm having the same issue as Jedasa. Can't move the anchor out of the top right corner.

  • #1279

    Ever since the new update I can not move the MBF anchor it is suck in the top right corner :(

  • #1278

    I've checked the addon out and everything seems to be working properly.  I suspect there is another addon that is conflicting.  Seems someone decided to use MBF as the name for their addon as well.  I've gone though and changed it in the code now so it won't conflict.  I also noticed that it was setup as a global and not local for some reason.  Think it got deleted by accident at some point.  I'll upload a new version as soon as I can access the project site on here again.

  • #1277

    Sorry haven't had a chance to look at it yet.  I'll try and have an updated version by the end of the week.

  • #1275

    Really hope to see an update on this mod ASAP.  If the original owner can no longer work upon it, I hope that s/he releases it with an open source license to allow others to pick it up!

  • #1274

    Please, please update this?  I HATE those little buttons sticking to my map porthole and this was SO much better!

  • #1273

    is there an eta on an update?

  • #1272

    iv tryed removing all the mini map buttons and re adding them but the just go where they please.......evn in the middle of my mini map

  • #1269

    I love this addon, but where i currently have it positioned overlaps with the pet battles addon. Any chance you could add an option to hide during pet battles?

  • #1265

    When I accidentally clicked on the MBF button, it made the entire frame vanish!  No matter what I try, I cannot get it to reappear.  When I type:  /mbf show, Blizz's interface/addon opens with MarkingBar open.  Anything I type following /mbf opens the options through Blizz for MarkingBar!
