Macro management mod?

Postby cordelia » Sat May 23, 2009 5:12 pm

I am totally out of macro slots. I also bump up against the 255 limit too often.

Does anyone know of a good mod that solves both these issues?

I also have another issue: Whenever I unspec, blizzard removes certain macros off my toolbars. I always have to refind them and drag them in, and sometimes I forget, so I go into combat without avenger's shield macro'd correctly or something.

Does anyone else run into this? and if so, any ideas how to get around it?

Well, a few to help.
ACTION BAR SAVER (save your macro spots) [the BEST THING EVER!well before dual spec swapped bars, but still good.] ... aver2.html
Quick little mod, allows you to setup different profiles for your action bars.

For example, if you're currently a Feral Druid you can type /abs save feral then you can respec to Resto and setup your bars, then type /abs save resto once you go respec back to Feral you can then train all your spells again and type /abs restore feral and you'll get your feral setup without all the work of actually finding where you placed things.

MACRO BANK (more macro slots) ... oBank.html
MacroBank is an addon to allow you to save macros for future use.
* Create macros inside the macro bank without having to create them in the main macro window first.
* Macros can be given a category to group similar macros together.
* Macros can also be given a description to distinguish them between other macros with the same macro name.
* Change both the macro text and icon in the macro bank.
* Save a macro from the main macro window directly to the macro bank.
* Load a macro from the macro bank to your main macro list.
* Replace an existing macro with a macro from the macro bank.
* Delete a macro from the macro bank.
* Load macro groups when swapping talents.
* Send macros to other MacroBank users.

MACRO SHRINKER (*might* help you with 255 limit) ... inker.aspx
Lets you save up to 70 characters in a macro for the most common and often-repeated functions, which helps you stay within the macro length limit.
Simply install the addon and edit your macros to replace the common commands below with their new /msh *-equivalents.

/msh clr = /script UIErrorsFrame:Clear();
/msh sfxoff = /console Sound_EnableSFX 0
/msh sfxon = /console Sound_EnableSFX 1

Even shorter macros, combining the above into their most common use:

/msh 0
/msh 1
