About NotesUNeed

NotesUNeed v6.82.50001

Please do not use the comments page for reporting bugs. To report a bug with NotesUNeed, use the following link to open a support ticket.



Overview

Compatible with patch 5.0.*
Feature-rich, searchable Notes database with many automated features, and additional NuN tooltips for viewing note details.

Make Contact Notes on other Players, or General Notes on anything else.

This AddOn is for making your own custom notes on players, and quests, and items, etc. and does not come with any pre-made notes. It does provide an Export and Import Feature for sharing of sets of notes, or publishing of note databases.

The default Modifier keys for creating notes from Container Items and Hyperlinks is now simply "<Alt>-Left Mouse Click". For anyone unhappy with this key-Combo, then they can now specify their own via the NotesUNeed Options frame.

Titan Integration: NotesUNeed now includes support for displaying a pin on the Titan toolbar. Originally, however, NotesUNeed could only be used in Titan by installing an additional addon. Though that's no longer the case, and NotesUNeed provides its own Titan plugin these days, I still endorse their efforts, and some users might find that they prefer the layout and style of the external plugin. It can be found here:
TitanNotesUNeed

Compatible with LibDataBroker AddOns via :
NuN-LDB


Below is a summary of NotesUNeed functionality, but you should read the Readme.txt file for much more detailed discussion on these subjects. I've been overhauling and updating code steadily for the past few months; if you find something in our documentation that is out of date, don't hesitate to bring it to my attention by creating a ticket for it. I'm usually pretty quick to respond to new tickets.

Main Features of NuN

1. Create Player Notes (aka Contact Notes) :

  • Create Contact notes : a) using new NuN buttons in the Friends Frame b) using the NuN Micro Buttons described in point 3 c) using slash commands d) via new NuN options in the player context menu e) Or via any of the automated methods mentioned below

2. Create General text notes on anything you like :

3. NuN has a MicroButtons panel with 4 buttons for quick access to features. This frame can be moved by dragging the small border surrounding the buttons, and can be hidden if not needed (see slash commands). From left to right the buttons are :

  • Options : toggle the NuN Options frame
  • Note Browser : toggle the NuN Note Browser frame <Alt> Left Click to browse General notes only Right Click to browse Quest History
  • Contact Note : create a note for the current target will create a General note if current target is an NPC <Alt> Click to re-open the last opened Contact Note
  • General Note : Start a new empty note will create an NPC note if current target is an NPC <Alt> Click to re-open the last opened General Note, use the the keybind, or if you have Titan installed, simply click the NotesUNeed icon on the Titan bar.

4. Note Browser Window. This is where you can view the list of notes you have :

  • default sorting is your Faction, then Opposing, then General Notes
  • search for notes containing text you specify in the edit box a) Left click : Case insensitive search b) Right click : Case sensitive search
  • filter visible notes from the Options Frame e.g. to only show Quest Notes, or NPC Notes

  • hover over a note to see its contents in a Tooltip
  • Right-Click to open the sticky NuN PinUp Tooltip
  • <Shift>Left-Click to paste the note name in to open chat box
  • After filtering and searching to narrow down the visible set of Notes, you can : a) Mass delete those listed in the browser frame b) Export listed notes for other players to install and Import

5. Options frame - open via the Microbuttons or slash command "/nun" Configure NotesUNeed here, or filter the notes to appear in the Note Browser frame. For example, to just look at NPC notes, or browse Quest History for one of your Toons

6. Backup and Restore functionality to save your database This functionality is kept in separate LoadOnDemand AddOns to save memory. Both the Backup and Restore processes will execute a ReloadUI()

7. Import and Export of notes Databases Share sets of notes with friends, or publish notes databases as a Plugin for others to Import

8. Broadcasting & Sending of NotesUNeed Notes Broadcast Raid Instructions for Boss enchounters or PvP strategy, or just your enchant selling menu; Or send formatted notes for other NotesUNeed users to add to their database.

    Right-clicking on a character portrait and then selecting a note does not apply the note to the character

  • #963

    An update for this addon would be much appreciated!

  • #960

    Apparently this great ADDON has been abandoned.  This note created 15 Feb 2014.

  • #961

    I really wish there were someone to whom I could donate from PayPal or something to convince them to keep up this addon. 

    Now that it's "broken" again, I've lost all of my notes, *again*.  I wish NotesUNeed had an option to export to a TXT file or something. 

  • #962

    For future reference, if you go into wtf>account>"your account name">saved variables, you can backup your notes file (should be called "NotesUNeed.lua")

  • #954

    Ok, so we can get NotesUNeed to work by copying v6.69 and changing the GetCVar("realmName") to GetRealmName(). This leaves 2 issues...

    Fix UI look = copy the file NotesUNeed.xml from v6.82.5 and overwrite the existing file from v6.69.

    There is 1 issue remaining = you cannot CTRL+Click or SHIFT+Click items to view their look for transmog or to link items in chat. Can someone figure that one out? I tried fixing it myself in the lua files. I know the issue is in NotesUNeed.lua

  • #956

    Ok. I finally got NuN v6.69 fully functional for MoP. The final problem was the ability to SHIFT and CTRL click items.

    Change line 6215 from:

    return bResult or NuNHooks.NuNOriginal_HandleModifiedItemClick(clickedFrame, mouseButton);

    to:

    return (bResult == true) or NuNHooks.NuNOriginal_HandleModifiedItemClick(itemLink);

     

  • #958

    Thanks, that got it back to work for me. I still see this from time to time though:

    Error: AddOn NotesUNeed attempted to call a forbidden function (IsDisabledByParentalControls()) from a tainted execution path.

    Edit: from what I see out there, looks like blizzard changed the api without notifying developers or something, so this is not a "I still see it" error, but a new one.

    Re: PATCH 5.4.1 Broke Notes"U"Need mod .. PLEASE FIX

    -- First Off let me tell you I USE THIS MOD  A LOT !!! I run a very large Guild and use this to track all my guildies. I have over 15000 notes that I have collected over the years on my Guildies.. I came home tonight to play some and loaded up my game to find that Blizzard had updated there game to patch 5.4.1 on Oct 28th 2013 and Notes"U"Need will no longer work. I came to the download site and installed version - 6.82.50001 ... With the icons for Notes"U"Need now visible in the UI,  but nothing happens when I click on the icons on the mod. I thought there may be a conflict from one of my other mods so I turned off everything and loaded the game with nothing but blizzard and Notes"U"Need ... NO GO the mod will NOT LOAD when clicked on the magnifying glass or any of the icons on that little strip. PLEASE UPDATE.. I BEG YOU !!! Like I said I USE this all the time.. I am even willing to pay you to update this mod privately .. Please contact me if you want more info on what I am seeing.. [email protected]

    Thanks I REALLY HOPE you will be able to help me..

    Guys.. I have a SOLUTION for the NotesUneed not launching and the bug for the calendar not showing the Guild events.. Install and do the follwoing..

    - If your using WOW 5.4.1 or later install :

    NotesUNeed  Version      NotesUNeed_6.68.2    can be found at : http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/notes-uneed#t1:other-downloads

    - To fix the inability to launch with 5.4.1 do the follwoing

     - Navigate to the NotesUNeed.lua  file and open in text editor  -

    Use the find command to locate  - GetCVar("realmName")

    Change it to  : Getrealmname()

    - Do not remove the semicolon after it.

    ____________________________________________

    Once you have done the above with version NotesUNeed 6.69 and modified the ULA file you will be able to launch WOW with NotesUNeed active and you should be able to see your calender events..

    I had to dig to find this info and it was hours of trial and error logging in and out to narrow down this solution.. I hope that it works for you guys..

    Best of luck to all in WOW.. :)

    fixing with 5.4.1

    Several people on the official Bliz forums have pointed out that GetCVar("realmName") is now gone.

    To get NotesUNeed working again, find open the NotesUNeed.lua file in a text editor and search for

    GetCVar("realmName")

    and replace with

    GetRealmName()

    Do not remove the semicolon after it.  You may also need to fix this in the file NUN_TitanIntegrationModule.lua under the Modules directory.

  • #952

    good job! that works, many thanks

  • #948

    not working since 5.4.1.17538 updates yesterday, please fix this

  • #947

    This is really frustrating... does anyone know a good replacement for this or if it will be updated any time soon? I wouldn't mind waiting if I knew it was at least being worked on
