I've noticed this as well. In particular, the bank bags (not the main bank section) are lost whenever the area changes (enter an instance or change continent)
It seemed to work better when I turned on the feature to automatically open the Sanity window at the bank.
However, I'm finding Possessions + WhoHas to be a much, much more capable addon (shows tooltips everywhere, including action bars, gathering nodes on the minimap, etc.) and will be using it in lieu of Sanity as soon as I get around to snapshotting all of my toons' bags/mailboxes/banks/etc.
I apologize if I missed this error while parsing through the thread, but nothing jumped out at me ;)
I *LOVE* Sanity except for one gamebreaking issue. When I have an item tagged to an existing category and try to select the same tag, it hard freezes the client. For example, I was trying to mark my healing gear for a specific healing bag... if I attempt to tag an already tagged item, said error kicks in.
Is there a working previous version? Or a workaround?
I really like Sanity.
++The tooltip telling me who has what where
++Small functional - nice look
BUT: loosing bank data on zone change makes it unusable
Is there any plan to fix this??
I haven't found any fixes for it, thats a big part of why i changed to possesions (has all of the above expet categorys, but instead the search function is lightyears ahead with "blizz" item type category filter, who/were filters, and name filter).
(it shows who has how many and where (including guild banks, very good if u have a banker guild)
Unf it seems like Sanity atm is more or less abandoned...
I also have Poss... but it is
not so easy to use (dropwons instead of checks (Bank, Inv, ...)
--also you can't choose bank and post for an example
Much more space using
Multiline in Tooltips instead of one line
BUT it works at least.
AND it seems that you are right - the bug exists for a long time.
I also love Sanity. I while back, Antiarc split the it in two addons one for the display and research and one for caching the values. I think the aim was to be able to share the caching function between multiple addons. This is when I started having real problems with it. At the time, I simply took the snapshot before the split and have used it ever since. I did some little modifications to keep it working from patch to patch (for example, my version is able to scan multiple attachments in mail) but nothing much. It works well enough for me and I was quite happy to use that until the real thing get done. I don't loose stuff in bank while zoning (at least, I'm not aware of any such lost).
I guess I could try to package that under another name (Sanity2_Classic ???) and upload it somewhere for ppl to use but I would not be able to offer support for it. Maybe we could use it as a base for a "fan maintained" version of Sanity?
