Does anyone know how to get CowTip to print a blank line?
Prior to 2.4 I had something like [IsPlayer ? Text()], i.e. some random condition then an empty text string, which seemed to give me an empty line no matter what the unit was. The same method no longer works now: [IsPlayer? ""] doesn't do anything, nor does [""].
I want these empty lines because CowTip condenses tooltips in bizarre ways when certain lines do not have anything to print. For example, I have lines for a unit's zone and talents, but sometimes these do not apply (unit is in the same zone as me or not in my group, talents are not available to me) and then my tooltips get squished. When these lines DO have something to print, the tooltip is correctly spaced and it looks fine.
First, I want to say this is a great addon and I really do appreciate the work you've put into making it what it is.
I am a man who knows just enough to get his UI looking to way he wants, but has no knowledge regarding the code that makes things happen the way they do.
Since the 2.4 patch I have been unable to view players talents when I mouseover them. I do not know what to type in or even where to type it in.
I attempted to plug in some 'code' that a previous poster listed, but it was a failure. I don't know if you're suppose to add code from the Cowtip menu while ingame or if there is a file in the Cowtip folder that I must alter.
If you can help me I really would appreciate it.

In 2.4, they have to be visible, within 30 yards, and not an enemy. Before 2.4, it was a lot more slack.
Although there are a number of posts about people still not being able to see Talents so maybe a bug somewhere?
Tags actually got simpler, it's just that some people don't understand how to write them properly.
Not to be snarky, but, there's a few of us who aren't in the computer programming profession and thus find it tedious to try and figure out tags without any sort of list/guide. I'm patiently waiting for the dogtag wiki and/or in game help to be updated however, and I'm using the old versions of cowtip/pitbull.
If the wiki/in game help has been updated, hopefully someone announces it. <--------( edit, just found something ck whipped up)
I have my dogtags for pitbull health/mana to be in smart mode, class colored visible, and upon mouseover the absolute values pop up for health and mana. No idea where to start recoding that without lists! I don't even know what the rules changed to. I have customized tags for cowtip too.
It works fine r60096 and prior, but not the later revisions. It will give me an error that says "!" unknown separator and the level of the mouseovered target doesn't appear, but the race and class will.
However, if I use r60096 and prior versions, my pitbull mouseover texts won't appear. If I use the most recent cowtip, pitbull mouseover functions will work.
i redid my tip exactly how i want it, all thats left is to have it show the players location. i am pretty sure it did this on default, but i dont remember what the tag is, and i cant find it on the tag site. if anyone knows it thatd be awesome.
