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.

  • All screenshots was taken with a customized button skin loaded. Buttons will appear as other buttons in your WoW.

  • Edit frame - Safe - toggles a frame editor for the frame, picking a modified, a default or a top level frame in that order

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).

    Been unable to duplicate this, please check your Custom Frames to see if any of those are causing it. If no then it's most likely a conflict with another addon.
  • #1446
    Hello, I can't seem to be able to edit the size of my buffs/debuffs bars on target frame for some reason, whenever I try to adjust the scale my buffs/debuffs bars move chaotically on screen but not adjusting the size at all, I can't seem to figure out what's wrong, I tried reset, I tried reinstall, nothing will work, please need help, thanks in advance.
  • #1479
    Sounds like a conflict with another addon.
  • #1445
    It seems that this addon likes to make my currency tab unavailable to view. Not the biggest problem in the world, but makes it frustrating when trying to monitor Justice/Valor Points.
  • #1480
    Check your Custom Frames category, cause this does not happen out of the box.
  • #1441
    There are 2 bugs I noticed from this addon.

    First: When you press esc to go to system menu, Logout and Macro buttons are in the same place, making Logout unclickable.

    Second: Strangely, it seens the addon is bugging the tooltip. Whenever you get a quest reward and the tooltip showing your currently equipped item pops up, it'll never disappear unless you reload the UI.

    Please check on this

    First: Sounds like you have moved one of the buttons with MA, check your Custom Frames category...

    Second: Does not happen out of the box, most likely it's a conflict with another addon.

    having an issue with my experience bar not staying resized upon exiting many vechiles or other vehicle like fuctions.
  • #1482
    Cheers for reporting this, even if its at the wrong place. Will be fixed in the next release.
  • #1439
    I find a automatic mining addon,with 4.1.0 patch
    www.aionktzbot.org
    I appreciate all the hard work you've put into it.Very simple.
  • #1436
    Yes thank still works :D
  • #1435
    I just released 12.1.5 updating the .toc version number.

    All my tests gave the impression that nothing had stopped working, though it of course did require you to check "Load out of date addons".

    If you notice any new issues please don't hesitate to inform me.

    I've fixed this. As soon as the update is approved, Dominos_Minimap shouldn't cause anymore issues.
  • #1438
    Somehow it seems like the minimap has become anchored to the minimap zone text.

    Try resetting them both before modifying them again. A reload in between might be necessary.
