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.


  • 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.

Key Bindings:

  • Toggle MA window - toggles MoveAnything's main window
  • Move frame - Safe - toggles moving of the first found parent frame, from MA's default list or a top level frame if possible
  • 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
  • Reset frame - Safe - resets 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).

    Re: World Map

    Is it possible to move the world map? Mine pops up dead center and is split by my two monitor bezels. More importantly, I noticed under "Issues" that it says: Addon losing some of the saved variables sometimes.  Is this why my @$%& target debuffs keep moving offscreen to the bottom left? I move them back onscreen, and immediately when I close the mover, they move back offscreen. I can move other elements fine and they stay, but not the target debuffs. I've only noticed it on this one character. It's extremely infuriating.

    EDIT: If I move the debuffs while I have somthing targeted and the target has a debuff on it, the frame will stay. However, when I relog, the frame has moved offscreen again.

    The World Map currently is eperimental, you can move it but only if it's minimized, and brakes when you maximize is back, and occasionally could cause some taints.

    The debuff issues has nothing to do with that, i'll try to force lock thoose frames by default in 14.0.0.

    Or you can wait 2-3 more weeks and MoveAnything 2 will get released, and (hopefully) it  won't have issues like this.

    Updated with 14.0.0.

    The Micro Menu is giving me problems as well. Anytime the menu is resized or moved it will just return to default after a /reload. If the Micro Menu is hidden I will getting massive fps drops when ever I do dmg. Unlike emoxxxkid I'm not using nUI or Carbonite but I am use bartender. Hope this helps in someway.

  • #2516

    You could try ctrl+click on the unlocked frame, then tick the "Force Lock Position" twice.

    I'm having an issue with the Micro Menu.  I'm using nUI and Carbonite so I don't know if that would have anything to do with it (sorry I'm new to WoW).  But I move and resize the MicroMenu to the top and everytime I /reload ui or sign out and back in it stays in the correct place, but it resizes it back to the defaul.  I make it very small to fit in a tiny area at the top.  I mean I can easily adjust it all the time, but it's a little annoying.  Any suggestions?

    so recently, I ran into a problem with the ExtraActionBar - and the only way I can get it to show up, is pop open MoveAnything, and click the check-box for it, and reset it's position to Center. I can then use it, but once I close MoveAnything options, it disappears again. The only other addon I can think that is conflicting with it might be Bartender, since it also can control the ExtraAction bar.

    EDIT: I can bind a key to the Extra Action, so that's kind of a workaround, but it would be nice to be able to see it too. :)
