    I'd like to make a feature request/suggestion. I think that the general macros from the Default profile should be dynamically added to the general macros of all the other profiles. My reasoning is that with the addon the way it is we kind of lose the functionality of "general macros". Although we can have a default profile to use as a template if we want to add new general macros we'll have to add it to every other profile manually (which is very tedius). So it is possible to make the default profile 'part' of all the other profiles I think it would be really helpful to this addon's users.

    Sounds like a great idea!

    I could certainly "ignore" global macros with a quick line of code. Would that do it you think?

  • #91

    I'm not him but I think it would be great.
    The general macros are extremely useful as macros that you can reuse on most characters, e.g., mount macros, target macros, macro macros.

    As it is now you end up losing this reuse option.

    I have no idea how complex that would be, but if you had the option to ignore OR not ignore the general macros when making a profile it would be ideal. For some characters (like a PvP toon for example) usually you want as many macro slots as possible (making the general macros private ones just for that toon), but for most others having general macros is just too convenient to pass up.

    Actionbar placement has changed. KNOWN ISSUE (Workaround, reposition manually for now)

    Is there already a fix of it?
    This really drives me crazy... :-(
    I .zip the 2 lua files for all my champions. When the issue apears, I log out, unzip the 2 .lua files.
    And everythings ok. But after ~10+ loads, it's fucked up again.

    For me, it feels like a "random save" while you "load" a profile.
    Like, it switch the position of spells in your action bars, and saves it. THEN load them.
    Because if this issue apears the first time, you can't load the old positions.

    When I unzip the original .lua (my saved profiles) it's working again.
    This issue is the reason why I try to find an alternate addon :-(

    I was about to ask if I was doing something wrong with the beta 6.0.3 version when I read that.
    So sad. Coincidentally for me I leave all the macros in sequence so manually repositioning  is "only" dragging and dropping 10 icons in sequence. For any other case I think this would be a pain in the ass.

  • #83

    I simply love you man

  • #82

    This was caused by the "check for duplicate macro names" function. It was disabled in the latest, so please update and wait for the proper release.


  • #77

    when i save or load a profile it only changes my general macros, but in the screen shots it looks like its meant to work with player specific macros, any idea whats going on?

    Please try the newest Beta, if that doesn't work, then follow these instructions:

    Please upload your saved file located in C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\<account>\<server>\<character>\SavedVariables\ProfilesMacros.lua to so I can debug it


  • #84

    Sorry forgot about this post for a while and even stopped playing wow. But yep its an issue with the latest version so I've put it on pastebin: Some things you should know that I noticed are that all the macros it has recorded are my general macros, and that although [RESTORE_LOCKED] has the correct icon's for my target (pvp) and target (pve) macros, it got changed to a question mark in profile test1 and test2.

    EDIT: just found out i wasn't using the beta :P let me check again

    EDIT: ok it works now

    Tried this version on a character without a lot of macros. and it deleted some of the macros -- almost all the 'personal' macros were gone. some were listed in the general section, some not listed at all.

  • #75

    Where that Like button when you need it?? :D


  • #74

    All of mine are up and working for both specs. Thank you so much <3

  • #73

    Thank you, the latest beta seems to hold up tight. So I will scramble to the next addon and make that work too. When done, I will sort out the minor bugs, load at start specifically and also your profile.

    Keep me updated.
