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).

    thx for report.

    Thank you so much for keeping MoveAnything updated.  Its a very important addon that I use, as I am sure it is for all its users.

    Hello!

    I recently started using this addon with the Blizzard Raid Frames. I have scaled them down to around 70% of normal size (one group at a time). Normally this works fine but when I enter an instance or battleground they are often all relocated to the center of the screen and I have to reload UI to reset them. Often, some players are also missing from the frames (reload UI works for this too). This does not seem to be an issue with the addon disabled. Most likely this is Blizzard's fault anyway but it would be nice if you could check it out or if you have a suggestions on how to fix it in some other way (such as choosing another frame to scale).

    Also, I am really annoyed about the MoveAnything button that appears in the menu. Can you add an option to hide it or just remove it altogether. The settings are in the interface options now anyway and I guess most people rarely use the settings after the initial setup.

    Thank you for taking up the work also!

    -- Can you add an option to hide it or just remove it altogether 

    go to MoveAnything -   MoveAnythingGameMenuButton

     --  all relocated to the center

    i am testing Raid Unit Frames mover (Scale 0.74) and it work fine. 

    --some players are also missing from the frames

    its blizzard error. Frames wont update while player in combat. 

  • #1722

    What better way to update an addon than have a dedicated fan (who already released an update) take over the main addon. You are awesome!

  • #1721

    I dont know how to fix "RemoveTalent()" error atm so do not use PlayerTalentFrame mover (Talent / Glyph) Need more time to fix it

    Hello 

    One thing I have noticed PRIOR to the last update and AFTER, I did not report it earlier. When you move the "Specialization & Talents" Window elsewhere, and try to add/modify a Glyph, you receive an error stating the interface needs to be disabled.

    Once disabled you can make you add/change, and then reinstated the add-on.

    Not sure if that can be looked into?

     

    Thank you!

  • #1717

    Dont forget reset config. Some old frames reworked and get new names.

  • #1716

    I love you :)

  • #1715

    Thank You, AJIea!!! You are amazing. And I love you for updating MoveAnything for Wagthaa.

  • #1714

  • #1713

    I legitimately jumped out of my seat when i saw that this had an update on my Curse Client.

    Easily my favourite AddOn and was considering deleting due to all the error messages i was getting!


    Thank you, so much!

    hello

    This is what is often reported that this message I recurring each area change.

    An error occured while syncing BagsMover. Resetting the frame and /reload'ing before modifying it again might solve the issue. You can disable this message in the options. If the problem persists please report the following to the author: BagsMover 12.2.3 Interface\AddOns\MoveAnything\VirtualMovers.lua:1355: attempt to call global 'updateContainerFrameAnchors' (a nil value)

    I add my voice to the cry for Move Anything updates. Long live user Freedom!
