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.

  • Edit frame - Safe - toggles a frame editor for the frame, picking a modified, a default or a top level frame in that order
  • Hide frame - Safe - hides frame at cursor, from MA's default list or a top level frame if possible

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).

    Just released a fix for the AuctionFrame.

    Blizzard renamed the attached dressing room frame, causing my hook to refuse to hook AuctionFrame.

    Also updated the list with a few new names of other frames Blizzard decided to rename.

    As for now I can do nothing to fix the issue with changing of glyphs, so for now leave the Static Popups and/or the Talent frame unmodified to avoid the issue.

  • #1678

    My talent and static popups are unmodified but I still have the issue

  • #1592

     Same here

     

    Quote from adore33 »

    As of Patch 4.3 the Auction House Frame is not moveable.

    Auction Frame

    As of Patch 4.3 the Auction House Frame is not moveable.

  • #1590

    Theres 2 problems I have with this and I have no idea how to fix it.

    1. Whenever I want to change a glyph I get a pop up saying "MoveAnything has been blocked from an action only available to the Blizzard UI. You can disable this addon and reload the UI"   Having to disable to change a glyph is so annoying. Any work around?

     

    2. Ever since Getting MoveAnything my blizzard raid Frames are unresponsive. The Unlock feature in the Blizzard Raid manager won't work at all now. The brackets that would show up around your raid frames after hitting Unblock for you to move the raid Frames are unattached from the raid frames. Meaning if you move the brackets/outline thing IT will actually move by itself leaving the Raid Frames behind O-o ? so the only way of stretching and moving the raid frames is via "MoveAnything"    ANY fix for this ?

    Thank you!

  • #1589

    Not using MoveAnything for much nowadays except moving cast bars, you can move all bars but when you logout the horizontal position of the target cast bar resets to standard but the vertical will stay as you told it to. Nothing important except I've to use the "Center Horizontal" button everytime I log my character :>

    I had high hopes but MoveAnything didn't let me move the default quest tracker.  It showed a pretty dragable frame that didn't do squat for moving it.  back to the search for a moveable quest tracking window.

  • #1587

    /move ExtraActionButton1  moves the Ultraxion/Deathwing clicky button.

  • #1586

    Moveanything seems to have a mind of its own lately.  Various frames won't stay positioned or sized the way you want them.  Various frames are just not able to be modified, won't let you manipulate them at all.    Can we expect any kind of overhaul to the addon.  Trying to just reset stuff, or do fresh installs of the addon is not solving the issues.

    The main issues I have are with the Info Panels.  All the other odds and ends stay moved and sized the way I put them.  It just gets frustrating to tweak everything just so and then next time you do a reloadui or log in stuff is messed up.

    Thanks

    Can't find Reforge or Transmog anywhere, can't these windows be moved?

    I'm using eyefinity and really want to place those windows in my center screen as well.

  • #1584

     I constantly get errors while trying to run dungeons or just tabbing over random locations on my screen, it happens everytime I click raid find and scroll over any part of the raid finder box. this is the message that always pops up:

     

    [08:55:34] [Error 33089540] captured, click the link for more information.
    [08:55:35] !BugGrabber has stopped capturing errors since it has captured more than 20 errors per second. Capturing will resume in 60 seconds.

    Hi

    I updated this addon this morning, but it does have a bug with it unfortunately, which is to be expected on a patch day I guess even though it seems you updated it for it. The bug is that it breaks the random raid finder. You can see the new instance signup, but if you click on the "other raids" tab it is blank rather than listing the other raids. Definately this addon thats breaking it as I turned mine on one at a time to find which one was causing it not to show.

  • #1581

    In the 4.3 Dragon Soul raid how can I move ultraxion/deathwing's new damage reduction ability?  Will we have to wait until moveanything is updated for 4.3 or can it be done now?

    Thanks.

    I'm having a problem with my "MoveAnything", I'm limited greatly on the amount of things I can move the only headers I have are:

     

    +Arena

    +Battlegrounds & PvP

    +Dungeons & Raids

    +Loot

    +Minimap

    +Miscellaneous

    +Unit: Focus

    +Unit: Player

    +Unit: Target

     

    I used to have everything with MoveAnything! BC, but that would throw errors all the time. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling MoveAnything several times and I just can't get it to show many any other headers.

     

    I really need to move my Achievement Frame, but can't :(
