About MoveAnything

MoveAnything enables you to move, scale, hide and adjust transparency of just about any screen element in WoW, offering tools to help you customize your UI. Some other frame modifications are also possible using MA's Frame Editors (Introduced in 11.b2), including framestrata, frame grouping and more.

Type /move to show the main window or click the button below the game menu. This main window contains a list of Blizzard's frames (any element not in the list can be added to the Custom Frames category by either /move frameName, /mafe frameName, /hide frameName or one of the move/mafe/hide keybindings).

Currently maintained by Resike. Many thanks to Alea of Гордунни EU who maintained it since the launch of MoP. Special thanks to Wagthaa of Earthen Ring EU who was the developer since the pre-WotLK patch. Kudos to Skrag (Original author), Jason (Vanilla) & Vincent (TBC) for earlier versions.

Movers:

  • Raid Boss Alternative Bar - mover for player/boss addition indicator (like The Stone Guard progress bar)

Reporting Bugs: Report bugs here - Include the LUA error message if applicable!
If the problem is with a certain frame, always try to reset the frame and reload before modifying it again. If the problem persists please report it at the above link.
Make sure you are running the latest version! You would be surprised how much time is wasted by reports of issues that are already resolved.
The LUA error message should be from an addon such as Swatter(a part of Auctioneer) or BugSack if at all possible. If the issue you are reporting is the result of a LUA error and you don't include this you might as well not bother posting.
If you feel like being helpful include your MA profile as an exported textstring in the report.
Any comment on Curse or forum post on WoWInterface containing a full error report will be deleted, as one of those quickly takes up more than half a page.

Tips: - Work in progress

  • Quickest way to modify a frame - Go into Keybindings, scroll down to MoveAnything and bind a key to "Move Frame - Safe". They key you bound now toggles a mover on the topmost frame underneath your mouse cursor.
  • Easiest way to reset a frame - Bind a key to "Reset Frame - Safe" as described above and press it while hovering your mouse cursor above the element you want to reset. Check the chatframe to verify it's the right frame before clicking the key again to confirm.
  • Moved something by mistake - Type /unmove last and it will reset the last frame you interacted with.
  • Figuring out frame names for use with /move, /hide, /mafe and /unmove - Use the "FS" checkbox to show Blizzard's Frame Stack tooltip. This tooltip displays a list of frames currently underneath your mouse cursor, divided by what screen layer they are in(aka framestrata).

    I can move my target of target debuffs but not the positive buffs. any help plz?
  • #658
    OK to begin with have been using this add-on for sometime and very much enjoy it's functionality.
    Which is why i am posting, the "Move Anything" game menu button is no longer movable/hide-able and some frames seem to slightly reseting upon logging out (slight = 1 cm back to original position) and upon opening MA menu and going to re-position them they move BACK to where i wanted them.
    Just some small glitches i am sure BUT PLZ FIX EM.......driving me bonkers having to go to older version : (
    BTW the "Nudger" is bollocks and should be OFF by default, if your so anal about the frames placement i am sure those people that like it would find the "On" toggle in MA window.
    Keep up the modding : D
  • #654
    Can't move my MyRP icon that is usually beside the target's frame. Anyone?
  • #651
    Just a question.... is there anyway to move the marker for "rested experience"? It doesnt move with the xp bar, so now i have this annoying little line that moves across my bars and stuff at the bottom
  • #646
    1) Can't find where to move "you have ## attempts left" in icc is at, any idea?

    2) Can't find where to move the frame for Gunship icons during the icc gunship encounter, any idea?

    3) Since the recent patch my pvp flag timers are not showing and i can't seem to move them.
  • #644
    Is anyone else having a similar problem? I just installed this for the first time, and I love it, but I have a tiny issue... I got it mainly for the bags, since I have a bit of a hub at the bottom, and the bags were in the way. So I set up the bags, scaled and move them, and every time I log in, it has them in the right general area, but all except for one are further down on the screen than I set them to be until I /move and check and uncheck them.

    Any ideas?
  • #661
    I had the same issue with all 4 extra bags, and other times they'd work fine. I installed Combuctor, though, so I don't care anymore. Combined with BankStack it made my life as a GM easier.

    I cannot get MoveAnything to move certain windows.

    For instance the frame titled WatchFrame.

    If I type /move WatchFrame the window pops up, but if I try to drag the window, it stays where it is. I cannot drag it around. I have tried everything, but this version just will not move certain frames.

    I like to have the most updated versions of addons, but the only version of this that works for me and does not give me any errors is a repack version by a different author. I won't post a direct link, but it is on the WowInterface site and is titled " MoveAnything - Updated for 3.2" By the author Nightness in the plugin and patches area.

    Why does that version work, but the new updated ones do not ?


  • #636
    Since patch 3.3.5 I have been unable to move the "Top frame information panel"

    Ex. Flag Counts, AB Score, World Scores, Attempts Left on Heroic
  • #632
    I'm wondering if Wag will be handing this over to someone else who is willing to fix what's wrong with the current version and to move forward with future versions? I have become so dependant on this add on, however after it's last update it is pretty much unusable because it messes up to many other add ons. I'm dying here!
  • #631
    Here is some issues I found in this addon (3.3.3 AND 3.3.5 include):
    -Main character-
    1. When I choose horizontal MicroMenu, I can chose where I want it be, but once I change my spec, it reset... No problem with the vertical one.
    2. Stance/Presence etc sometimes disapear when I try to move it.

    -Alt- (Where my real probs are)
    I want the same and exact frame set bar and anything as my main character, but it seems 2-3 bar (right bottom 2 and bags button) are reseting nowhere, and when I try to reproduce it as the same thing as my main, then reloading, it's still reset those same bars. I do not use UCS, nor my main, nor my alt.

    If you know whats happening, please tell me, I really love this addon, better than bartender in my opinion
  • #629
    i love the addon! thanks for all the great work!

    i would like to see an option that remembers what each character has assigned to his moveanything settings, default or customized for the character. i guess one way around would be to duplicate customized profiles for each character, and use only customized profiles...

    i just thought i would mention it again... it would be fantastic if moveanything was able to move the 'moveanything' menu button.

    thanks!

    Getting a huge FPS hit with the latest version. Drops from 20-40 FPS down to 5-10 FPS.
  • #625
    I can't move the "Flag Capture Timer" either with safe or exact :(

    Managed to move other things just fine, but all I can do with that frame is scale it.
  • #622
    After installing patch 3.3.5, I couldn't get the flight path window to open at any of the Flight Masters. I eventually narrowed it down to MoveAnything. Resetting 'Flight Paths' under 'Info Panels' brought the flight path window back.
