Personally i use keybindings on the actionbar soley for dmg spells and use clique mouse (mouseover) bindings for all heals (exept Prayer of Healing thats bound on F, self if no mouseover target and on mouseover if exists).
Yea i am aware of this, however I am a Disc with my other spec Shadow Priest. But I like to pvp in disc sometimes in addition to healing in dungeons, and when i just get out of a dungeon and want to do pvp healing/dps as disc i have to change all of my 1-= bindings to my dps spell bar.
So what i am looking to do is make it easier to move hotkeys between bars without having to sit there for 10 seconds pressing 1 through = every time i want to change my role
I frankly don't understand what the problem is.
When in disc you have 1-= bound on bar 1 for instance and have your heals on bar 1.
When you swap to shadow 1-= is still bound to bar 1 but now bar 1 contains your damage spells.
Ok, so i recently downloaded bartender after, hmm, i guess i could say boycotting it ( lol ) because i would get too used to it and have to get reacclimated to a bartenderless comp if i was somewhere other than my own house.
But, nevertheless i gave in and i like it so far, just i have one suggestion that would greatly help me and probably others.
So before bartender i used my first actionbar for healing and second for damage spells as a priest, and when i would pvp or just kill anything i would switch to the second (hidden) action bar behind the first because it had the same bindings.
Now with bartender, the main reason i got it was so i could have everything spell on the screen without so much clutter, but i sacrificed my bindings for half of my spells, and i for one like to use 1-5 by hitting the buttons on my keyboard and clicking with my mouse every other spell, sooo...
This is what im getting at (sorry for long introduction),
Can you make it so that i can press a predetermined key that switches my hotkeys over to another bar when needed, instead of having to redo hotkeys if i want to switch to heals or dps
Oh and if you can, can you e-mail me if you update bartender with this option? i dont visit forums often and i probably wont realize its created for a while.
Edit: and im sorry if this already exists xD if so can you send me a message explaining how to do it?
When you change specc from dmg to healing the keybinds remain but you can put "new" spells in the slots that will be used in healing specc.
Also if used in combination with something like clique that has profiles based on specc you can have 2 completely different setups between the speccs (specc1 and specc2)
Thanks for the reply. The problem, I guess, is that I have another add on that is causing problems with BT as I currently have no text box. If I disable everything but BT the text box appears. I'll have to use a work around for now and will try to figure out what add on is causing the box to be hidden.
Thanks again for the reply
That issue sounds like something skinner might cause (its known to have every now and then)
Hi all been a longtime user of Bartender and 4 being the best to date just one small thing here lately i have noticed that spells will not update on the bars on toons with dual-spec so i tried your dual-spec BT4 with same result. No big issue for me but just thought i would bring it to your attention.
Bartender itself has no effekt whatsoever on what is displayed on what bar when you swap specc, BT4 only uses the blizzard information.
Keep in mind that all the stuff on the bars in spec 1 is completely separated from what is on the bars in spec 2 any any changes done while in one spec will never effect the bars of the other spec, they are completely separated and thats the way blizzard made them.
I have created buttons with kgpanels that show and hide Bartender4 action bars when I click them. However, if I click the button after I enter combat the action bars will not appear - only the frame-associated kgpanels background appears.
The scripting in kgpanels works exactly as I intend it to out of combat, the problem only arises after I enter combat and click the button. Is there some Bartender4 checkbox or scripting code that I've missed that enables action bars to appear while in combat?
Blizzard does not allow "protected" (actionbars, clickable unitframes and some other things afaik) UI elements to appear/change in combat this is to prevent some of the more extreme addons out there from making things to easy (like old decursive, emergency monitors, addons that changed what spell was on "1" depending on CD's and target HP and simmilar)
SavedVariables.lua? From which folder there's several throughout the tree
the file called "bartender4" in the WTF folder (wtf/account/accountname/saved variables) copy to the same location on the other computer. (i usually just copy the entire wtf folder so i get all settings for all addons and stuff on both comps)
probably an easy question, but is there some file i can copy to my new wow/bartender folder to get my settings from another computer? both are BT4 latest version. (just want to import my layout basically)
Bartender4 bars all reset each time I log for the first time each day. All my profiles are gone from the profile page and I have to redo all my bars on 9 toons each day. The actual buttons I have placed on each bar are still there it's just the placement of these bars reset and all end up in the middle of my screen. Any ideas why this is happening?
Your saved variables prolly aren't being saved, thats usually caused by having wow in the programs folder when using vista (ie the folder is write protected) and not running as admin.
Since running as admin is a bad idea the best thing to do is to move the wow folder out of program folder into its own folder (like c/games/worldofwarcraft ) and make sure its not write protected
