Just take the time to look at the options and read their tooltips. It's really not as hard as people make it out to be (no offense) - if you have the patience and commitment to actually look at it and understand it. If PitBull's configuration options are too much for you, then it's not the right unit frame mod for you.
But here's a couple pointers.
* there's a menu to enable/disable modules
* there's a menu to enabled previously disabled units
* there's a menu for global settings like colors, fonts, textures, etc.
* the frame->other menu encompasses anything not found in the bar, text, or icon menus

No offense taken :) This wasn't meant to be "I can't do it", but more of a "feature request" so more people would have the possibility to use it with ease. I took the time to check the menus and got the setup I wanted, it took about 3 hours reading and importing some frames and tuning the settings.
As a notice to other new users, settings things up can be done a lot faster unless you're micro-detail-management-everything-must-be-lined-up kind of user like I am.
IMHO, this doesn't take away the need for default settings better than "everything piled at the very middle" thou.
And importing the whole setup would make possible to take someone's hard work and take the full benefit from it, as I see no reason for 100 people to do 3 hours of work, when someone can spend 5 hours in it, make it perfect and share it. Lot like "skins" in many other non-wow programs (and in some wow-addons as well I think)
But like said, all this would only make excellent unit frame addon even better - with that said, I'm sticking with PitBull :)
I second this request... I don't mind doing some customization and am certainly capable of it. That doesn't mean I WANT to do it if someone else has already done the work. It would be great if there was a way to export and import the full PitBull UI so that someone could just post a screenshot of theirs together with a file that you can import to duplicate it. That would make PitBull a slayer of a unitframes!
Well you can always do what I did for my husband's system. The lua file contains all of the information you need, you can just copy it. Now my Pitbull is set up differently for healers vs dps, etc so I had an extra step of opening it up in a text editor and doing a find/replace on the old vs new char names.
It's not elegant and obviously not part of the addon's capabilities, but it did work. Some slight tweaking and he didn't have to spend 2 hours doing the initial config (which is why he wouldn't use it before).
