Hi Caedis, where do i have to look for the tooltip anchor points for bars at the bottom? because it seems at the moment the tooltip on all bars is anchored to the bottom of the bar, which means for bars at the bottom that the tooltip overlaps the bar. i'd like to change it so it anchors to the top, but i have no clue where to look for it. Also, the top- and bottom bg-bars do not hide in pet battle when the option is selected.

Could you add an option to hide it when not in combat and show while holding CTRL for example? That would be awesome!

@martinboy1974 - Sorry for this late response, but Shadow and Light is incompatible with DTBars

I am constantly getting this lua error with only the following Elvui addons enabled: ElvUI, Shadow & Light, HyperDT, ExtraData texts, DTBars, PlayerPowerBarAlt, ExtraActionBars, Aura Bars Movers, AddOnSkins, Dajova Shared Media, CleanBossButton.

I suspect DTBars to be the problem. I have version 5.0.8.

Can anybody get this addon to work now? I can't get the extra bars to show up at all since 5.4 hit
Posted by: tekagi  Posted on: Nov 02, 2013 12:33 AM

Is there any way to use different font sizes for different data text bars? Or perhaps somebody knows of another plugin that allows you to use different font sizes?

For Example: Extra Bar 1 texts are font size 12 while Extra Bar 2 could be size 20.
