    You can restore defaults under the UnitTooltip module and it'll get rid of your extra lines. Or you can delete them individually.

    What happened is I made a poor design decision when I localized strings. So now if a translation changes, then you end up with two lines. If I "fix" it, then I'll get a ton of bug reports for sure. If I leave it alone, then I'll end up with the occasional bug report wondering why lines keep doubling. So I have to find another solution somewhere.

    Sorry for the issue. I'll figure something out soon. :) But yeah, hit the little button to restore defaults in the UnitTooltip module. I think that should fix it. Let me know if I'm mistaken.

    Maybe make a startip for each language? Or in the settings a seperation between the languages so there is a more clear differentation.

    This may still be StarTip. I'll take a look at Skinner sometime and see what's going on. Is it hard to setup like you have it?

    I tested that yesterday with my main because I noticed it there first. I just tested it on my banktoon that has only a hand full of addons without skinner and the same problem. I better edit my former post. Shame on me.
    Actually I´m using a smaller than default setup. I only have name, target, guild, rank, level, race, class, HP, mana and zone enabled. Thats what I liked when I used cowtip so I kept that setup.

    The color can be changed with Colorize("text", 1, 0, 1).

    Hmm as far as the Target line, it may very well look ugly if your target changes target. :) Not sure how that would work out really.

    I ment the outline for the font of the mana. At the moment its dark blue font, black backround. I think it could stay this way but the dark blue font gets for example a white outline. Or make mana font color by default something similar to mage´s color, light blue. Right now I´m looking for the right color code to edit the correct line if I read the right segment right.

    I suspect skinner. After hovering over myself or anyone all tooltips cease to show up. The only tooltip thats working is over NPCs or players.

    Dont get my feedback wrong. I like this addon. Otherwise I wouldnt use it or post here^^. I´m greatfull that we have this kind of conversation. Since cowtip got unusable due to lack of a configmenu, I could only find this addon that was exactly was I was looking for. Thats what you wanted to create, a cowtip replacement.

    As for the informations, EJ forums has a ton, but just not what I was looking for. I´m banned there 2 times anyway :rolleyes:. But thats another story. I could understand some basic stuff while working with cowtip and then with startip. Its just that copy string1 from cowtip over to startip didnt work.
    As far as my personal design preferences go, please don't make subjective phrases like "Who in the world would have this look as it does?" They clutter up the dialogue with miscommunications. I have no idea how you want it to look, so I make it look exactly like I want it, and I give the user the full power of the Lua environment, to configure nearly all aspects of StarTip, from bars, to individual Lua scripts for colors themselves. So please, recognize your responsibility -- as the user -- to make configuration choices based on your own likes and dislikes. That is the whole purpose of StarTip.


    Ok, thats fine with me. I just cant find a use of the number behind the rank. Maybe you have a plan for it ;D It looks like I want it to look thanks to the config options.

    As for the foreign language stuff. Are you using an international client, or is it English (enUS)?

    Just a normal german client.

    To address the bugs you found, I suggest you just revert to the last "stable" release here: http://www.wowace.com/addons/startip.../2089-v1-4-55/

    I did that. For now. Unfortunately I have (too) many addons to sort out but I have a guess it could be something with skinner because there is no other addon involved with the cursor. I need to work my way through about 60 addons as suggested. I keep you posted on that.

    I'll look into making text larger. I tried adding a darker background to the mana line, but I'm not sure if I like the look. It looks like a blemish more than a background.

    I guess the color cant be changed easily. You would have done it already. At the moment we cant have a different color nor the backround thing working. What about a different outline? Any light outline color should work. Its just a guess.

    About the target line. I edited the left line and that already did the trick. Is it neccessary to edit the right side aswell? I had no errors yet and it does exactly what I had in mind. Big thank you for that :)

    I'm assuming you checked this, but make sure no errors are produced. Enable showing errors, or if you have BugSack/!BugGrabber setup, watch BugSack's display. Or if you have another error handler addon, watch that one.

    If that doesn't work, check (WOW_DIRECTORY)/Logs/FrameXML.log and see if StarTip's causing other errors. It shouldn't be I don't think, but never know.

    As I said, no errors ever from startip anywhere.

    With the newest version I have the english and german (because I run a german client) unit tooltips. Because of this I just had to disable some of them that were double in the tooltip. No big deal but maybe consider to disable new features by default when updating to a new version. This way the tooltip doesnt change until a user wants changes.

    At the flightmaster I can select the waypoint I want to fly to but it doesnt have a name. Talents in the talentsframe or items in my bags, the bags, spells on my bars or items my char is wearing... none of them has a tooltip.

    The number next to the guild rank for example "Officer (4)". I believe it was introduced with the former version. Whatever I edit it doesnt disappear. I dont want to sound rude but who needs to know if its rank1 or rank 10 if I see the name of it?

    The color of the mana. By increasing the normal text size to 13 it becomes slightly better readable. A color like default for mages would work better.

    "Target" tag. I´m still looking to find a way to disable it when my mouseover target doesnt have a target. Nobody in my local forums was able to find a way and they know how to work with this, at least better than I do. I tried reading myself into programming tags but I just cant work with it. I just hope you consider to change this tag that it works like feats or casts.

    posted a message on Inline Aura - display aura information inside action buttons
    At the bottom of the configuration panel of each module are listed the special keywords they define.

    It seems there is no command to activate on low mana, only on low health.
    Additionaly there is a module for demonsoul but I cant get it to show a nice aura if active. I added the same name that appears as a buff but its not working. Maybe its because demonsoul has 2 words? Like "demonsoul: felhunter/felguard". I dont get an error after confirming the spellname.
    Could you please add a module for healthstone thats editable? That way I could set it to shine if I reach a certain point of health. Currently there seems to exist a hidden module for HS but only if a use soulburn.

    Edit:
    I think I found the problem. It seems not to be possible at the moment to have a glowing button for spells that are just activated and are on CD for the duration.
    Tested with my priest to light up my powerword shield if I have it on me. If I loose the buff due to damage, I have a glowing powerword shield button, no buff and a debuff. But I need to have it the other way around. Buff up -> button glowing. Currently I could have debuff -> button glowing regardless if I have the buff or not.

    Nope, not in my list present. I tried to create one but I can only search for auras that I like to detect on me or my target. the current settingsmenu also looks very much smaller than before 4.1.

    I just updated from 1.5.5 to 1.6beta12. Menu looks like it should, problem solved. Thanks.

    I noticed the command for less than 25% health is "below25". Is there a similar command for mana? This way I could set up an aura t activate when my mana is below a certain point.

    Before 4.1 there was a setting to have abilities glow when the target is below a certain point of health. Very usefull for warrior and execute, warlocks and drain soul, paladins and hammer of wrath. Warriors and paladins have such glows but warlocks dont. Thats why I loved this addon for my warlock.

    Is there a setting to enable glowing on drain soul when my target is below 25% health?

    Well, I can't be much help as far as your problem goes. I suggest you click the button "Restore Defaults" and forget you ever touched those edit boxes. I'm not going to walk you through programming.

    Its not a problem, its a small visual change and its the default setting so far. If you dont have a solution for it then just say it and its fine with me. If cowtip used a different type of coding which cant be adapted for startip then I leave it as it is.

    But to answer the question, you'll want to hide the left side too by returning an empty string like you're doing on the right side.

    That disables/hides the line completely with and without a target. Thats not what I want. I only want to have this effect if no target is selected on my mouseover target.
    The tooltip shows target on both sides if my mouseover has a target. Thats fine. Now my mouseover has no target but on the left side the target line is there while the right side is empty. In this case I want to hide the target line completely on both sides. I wish I could copy the code from cowtip but I cant access the settings and show you.

    Here is what I have:

    As you can see I have myself as mouseover target and no target selected. I edited the names on the left side because I play with a german client. "Ziel" = "Target" in my case. I have no clue about coding and I´m grateful for your help and work.

    As mentioned on curse, I want to get rid of the target line IF my mouseovertarget has no target. Currently it looks like this:

    Someone
    Target:
    Guild: blub
    ect

    I used cowtip before and it automaticly hide the target line when no target was selected. When a player is not in a guild, its not showing the guild line. Why not have the same for target line? I have no clue about how exactly to edit the line texts.
