Hi all. I have kind of a weird issue :) I'm not sure where to even start other than to post 2 pics.
The first pic shows double the quest information in the tooltip. The 2nd pic shows a super-long tooltip when I moused over the NPC. I always get the double-tooltip information for quests, but only usually get the super-long info line (usually, not always).
So, first, can anyone tell me why I'm getting double tooltip info? I use TipTac for my tooltip and Carbonite for my quest addon. I've looked in the blizzard options and tiptac options but can't find anything to turn off for quests.
And second, does anyone know why my tooltip gets super long most of the time, and how I can prevent this?
I'd only like to see the quest objectives in the TT and not hte name of hte quest or the quest's text lol.
Carbonite is adding the offending lines, not TipTac or WoW itself. In your first tooltip, the first set of quest info lines (the nicely formatted ones) are added by WoW, and the second set (with all the colors) is added by Carbonite. In your second tooltip, the quest info lines are added by Carbonite, and it's apparently not smart enough to break the long objective text into multiple lines. There is no way to turn off WoW's tooltip quest info (without an addon to hide it) but you could turn off Carbonite's. Or ask the Carbonite author(s) to add code to detect and remove WoW's quest info.
awesome, thanks for the information! i'm surprised that there's not an option in wow itself to turn off the quest tooltip stuff, but i'll definitely look for that option in carbonite and turn it off.
