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been overhauling and updating code steadily for the past few months; if you find something in our documentation that is out of date, don't hesitate to bring it to my attention by creating a ticket for it.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.

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

    i have a problen to add notes to player with names including letter from different countries (äöÜâ). the name search and name of the note starts always after the last special letter.

  • #391

    Changes in v6.41.20400 from v6.40.20300
    ---------------------------------------

    - New Option to hide NuN Notes and Tooltips for Ignored players
    (Note: this only hides ignored player notes in the Note browser frame - you can still open that players note via slash commands, or Microbuttons)
    (Note2: only the NotesUNeed tooltip is hidden, not the Blizzard Game Tooltip)

    - small compatibility changes to SendMessage hooks (hopefully more compatible with TellTrack

    - allows manual entry of names beginning with special "accented" characters e.g. Á, É, etc...
    (NOTE : Names beginning with these types of characters are sorted by the game to appear AFTER "Z" alphabetically)

    (BETA Functionality)
    - If you send a note to someone who already has a note with the same name, then the recipient will be shown a Warning Dialog box allowing them to choose whether they want to Replace their existing note, or cancel receipt of the note and keep their original version instead.
    There is now also a third option allowing the sent note to be merged with the existing note by "ALT-Clicking" on the Replace button.
    When notes are merged, then the newly sent text will be appended to the end of the existing note's text. Currently, other values such as those populated in DropDown boxes will still be set according to the received note, and will replace old values in the original note.

  • #392

    Yo guy, could you integrate the options into blizzards new options frame so we don't have to fight with the console? :)

  • #393

    <Tumbleweed rolls through shot to the sound of a hollow whistling wind>

  • #394

    I love this mod, but since the last update it somehow is interfering with my quest mod 'lightheaded'.
    With this mod enabled, i cant browse through different pages in lightheaded couse it keeps resetting to the first page :S

    Anyone else having this problem?
    Any ideas on what might cause this problem, anything i can change myself to correct?
    Any help is appreciated

  • #399

    I should be releasing an UberQuest compatibility update tomorrow...

  • #398

    Thanks for looking into it

  • #397

    I'll try and see what's happening... no promises I'll be able to fix it from my side though...

    Which UberQuest ?

    Reborn, or fanupdate ??

  • #396

    Thanks for the tip
    I did some more testing, it seems to happen only with a combination of UberQuest+Lightheaded+notes u need

    Lightheaded+notes u need: fine
    uberquest+lightheaded: fine
    uberquest+lightheaded+notes u need: problem

  • #395

    @Eargon

    Nope, I've tested with the latest version of Lightheaded downloaded today, and no probs. (Also with Questhelper installed)

    I suspect there is another compatibility problem with another AddOn - possibly between NotesUNeed and another Quest AddOn you have, or Lightheaded and another AddOn.

    The only way to identify it for sure - unless someone else already knows - is to enbale ONLY NuN and Lightheaded, and then enable your other AddOns one by one to see when the problem happens again...

  • #401

    Great, it works.
    Thanks

  • #400

    Changes in v6.42.20400 from v6.41.20400
    ---------------------------------------

    - UberQuest & QuestGuru compatibility update

  • #402

    I understood that this AddOn was to replace Cosmos' SocialMods' "Social Notes" AddOn. But it doesn't yet.

    Some time ago, I was using this and Social Notes at the same time, and I found that Social Notes is far superior in terms of convenience.

    Some suggestions:
    - implement an icon next to unit frames (party, target, focus)
    - make clicking 'save' optional. Allow a person to just type.
    - allow pressing escape to close the notes dialogue.

    Some other things which are probably just issues on my end:

    I also seem to have some intermittent problems with using hotkeys to have NuN summon up the dialogue for a target and automatic party noting seems to have died.

    I do somewhat miss the quest event and party joining notes which appear in social notes. I have this toggled on in NuN but it doesn't seem to work anymore.

  • #404

    Thanks for your reply.

    I always thought that it was meant as a SocialNotes replacement. [1] Ok, I understand your position.

    I'm going to re-try the notes importing (which you posted about elsewhere)

    I read some docs and bumped into the alt-s save feature after I posted that note. I'm glad you're working on an autosave.

    In terms of convenience, I prefer a unit frames icon and would rather hide the microbutton. I've tried setting up a hotkey but it doesn't work the way I expect. I'm going to un-hide the microbutton and try things out again. If after that I have a solid claim for an improvement of bug report I'll make it.

    [1] http://www.cosmosui.com/showthread.php?p=65337

  • #403

    @syali

    NuN was never designed as a replacement for SocialMods - it is what it is.

    It has "replaced" that AddOn only because that one no longer has a maintainer. I never used it, and so have no idea what functionality it had, and have made no efforts to duplicate it.

    In terms of the suggestions :
    1.) You can already create NuN Notes for players from the right click menu, so I don't think I'll add a unit frame button
    Or target them and use the provided NuN Microbutton

    2.) You can use <Alt>-S when typing to quickly save a note.
    But an auto-save option has been on my to-do list for a while...
    i.e. to auto-save when you close the note edit frame

    3.) You can use the Escape key to close NuN edit frames. If you have more specific dialogue boxes in mind, then please be more specific

    What hot keys do you mean? I haven't had any trouble with the NuN key-bindings?

    Can you be more specific about your Party noting problem? I'm not sure what you're talking about on the quest event or party joining notes - so expecting the same from NuN is probably gonna disappoint you.

    NuN was originally published over 3 years ago - it is its own AddOn. I welcome suggestions if you can be more specific without referring to an AddOn I haven't used, and doesn't work any more.
