I don't know if I was having the same trouble or not, but I too had the "losing my current profile at a crash" issue (just after 4.0 wow crashed every hour or so, so I had lots of practice at it).

For me, I traced the issue to: using the dual-spec option on a bar, switching specs, and having the game crash: macaroon got confused when the macaroon "saved spec" didn't match the in-game spec.

Reloading or logging after switching specs "fixed" the problem (by saving game state).

If the game crashed after switching specs but before saving my dual-spec bars would be empty.

um, if the game crashes, any and all addon changes that you've made since your last proper logout or game reload will be wiped.

meaning, that's not just Macaroon that does that, all addons do. (you can thank blizz for that one.)

sorry.

as for losing all your Macaroon saved vars, i have an idea of what MIGHT be causing it, but, i make NO promises!

my idea is this: maybe when your game was crashing, it was in the middle of updating data for Macaroon in the background. if so, it would not have updated the data properly, which could maybe result in all your old data being overwritten.

as for a fix for that problem, (IF that even IS the problem!) you'll have to ask someone else, as i don't have a clue what to do.

ok, stupid question, but have you tried editing the button individually, and clicking the "Cooldown text" checkbox? that checkbox will be at the top-right of the "button edit" window. (for a picture of the window i mean, see the 4th screenshot for Macaroon's download page.)

THX

Finally, I found some reason for bugs(?) of Macaroon.
Actually, most them are not Macaroon error.
to display correct icon for macros, you have to add '#show spell' and
you have to use correct spell name in your laguage.(I don't know why, all the spell written in english will not show correct icon)
and, please erase all the '(stance)' pharase after apell name.
If you drag a spell to Macaroon button then the button shows auto written macro for the spell. it will shows spell name in detail including stance or just ().
Just erase it and use just spell name.
(ex;
#autowrite
/cast arcane shot()
--
/cast arcane shot

if you will add some macro command;
#show arcane shot
/startattack
/cast arcane shot
---

To fix dual spec profile problem, you better use check box enabled in profiles menu and don't enable dual spec in bar option.(set dual to 'off')

In my case, after clear these situation, I'm using Macaroon very successfully.

cheers~!

to anyone having issues with Macaroon atm...

as i said in the subject, this post is to anyone having issues with Macaroon atm.

you might try reading the following thread Maul started (and, he had posted a link to this thread on the Comments section for Macaroon, on 12-02-2011, 11:28 PM)


Love and Hate


so, as you can see from that post, he is rather busy atm, but if we are willing to wait a bit, he will have a new, better mod for us soon.

in the meantime, we should help him in whatever ways we can, be that by helping test his new mod, or (for those of us who can do LUA coding) by helping write the code (if he gives the go-ahead for that, but i'd assume he would have to approve each person to help with that individually), or maybe even by giving him a donation.

there are probably other ways that we might be able to help him, but i can't think of any atm.


P.S.

oh, and sorry if this turns out to double-post, but the first time i tried to post this on the comments section for Macaroon, it didn't work for some reason.

um, im pretty sure i said (somewhere) in my post that using

#showicon (or #showtooltip, or just #show)

doesn't work with spell ids. its a problem on blizzard's end, sorry. still, i am glad to hear you found a work-around.

[EDIT]
er, when you said you were looking to use the icon for the spell Nightfall, did you mean the warlock affliction talent? because, when i looked up Nightfall on wowhead, i found no spell by that name, only titles, items, warlock talents, a craftable, and two NPCs.

although, if you DID mean the warlock talents, then yeah, i noticed that wowhead found no items that use that icon.
[/EDIT]

4.3 patch - macros that don't reference a skill or spell

Updated to latest Macaroon, found all my macros of that sort (example, large cancelaura macro I use to remove annoying holiday shapes) display see-through blank icon, instead of what I had chosen for it to display.

Every content patch I have to re-assign icons to those macros, no problem, but this time it didn't apply, always showed blank icon.

Tried what Anseloth mentioned, looking on wowhead for a desired icon being used on an item, to reference in the macro.

I wanted to use the nightfall icon, found in affliction talent spec, for a recount toggle macro. No item uses that on a wowhead search.

I tried:

#showicon spell:18094

..in my recount toggle macro, it didn't work.

But in my frustration I tried selecting other icons from the icon list to use again, but now, it did work.

Crude I know, but I copied that showicon line to every macro I had that showed empty blank icons, and now they all use the icon I selected once I select it from the icon list.

Re: An Idea for the

Thanks for the links

I know what the issue is and I *can* make the icon issue work if I seriously redo Macaroon. Blizzard kinda seriously boned how Macaroon was set up to do icons with the change they did (they did not need to remove the API, they could have just deprecated it but left it in) and for Macaroon to work well with the changes there is a lot of "fixing" that needs to be done /sigh

I am just at that point that if I am going to commit serious hours to fixing things, I might as well start with a clean slate. A lot of what Macaroon does other action bars take for granted because action ID based buttons have a *ton* of support where those authors really do not need to think if the right icon is displaying or not. Macaroon, on the other hand, needs to keep track of things to make sure the buttons reflect the icon it should.
