Ion throws errors

I tried installing Ion, but it just throws multiple Lua errors a second upon logging in:

Code:
CreateFrame: Wrong parent object type, expected frame
<in C code>
<in C code>
Ion-Hydrogen-1\Ion-Broker.lua:83: in function <Ion\Ion-Broker.lua:81>
Ion-Hydrogen-1\Ion-Broker.lua:135: in function <Ion\Ion-Broker.lua:100>

Locals:
(*temporary) = "Frame"
(*temporary) = "IonBrokerOrb1"
(*temporary) = TitanPanelIonHydrogenButtonIcon [
 0 = <userdata>
]
(*temporary) = "IonMiniOrbTemplate"
 = <func> =[C]:-1
 = <func> @StrataFix\..\LibStrataFix.lua:118
(and no, removing LibStrataFix doesn't stop the errors).

1 and 2 are right, but, Maul is working on a way to import your old Macaroon settings into Ion.
I believe what KenNashua was asking in #3 was if there was currently a way to save individual profiles.

Example: I have 3 high level Druids on three different realms, I want to use the same button setup with all of them. In Macaroon, it was possible to set up the bars once, for one character, then save that setting. Then I could simply load the same profile for the other two Druids.

I can't figure out how to make Ion do that. Is there no way to save profiles at the moment? Or am I just unable to figure out how it's done.

Ion Cds

I've noticed on the bars I have made I see the GCD swing on the icons but I'm not seeing the talent CD on the Icon.. Plus with the new talents like Druid Faire swarm they do not work in the bars. Am I missing something I forgot to DL and install?

Yes, it will be through a supplemental addon. It already has a place in my addon list but I have not gotten to it yet.

Since Ion is a primarily a macro-based addon, the Blizzard option will not affect the way the macros are written or behave. I will be adding a global option in Ion that when selected, it will auto-write certain macros to cast as desired (self-cast, focus-cast, etc), but that is not in yet.

Spellbook bindings / Self cast

First of all, thank you for an awesome addon. Haven't found a better action bar addon since the Trinity days. Can't play without it!

Now, I know that the Ion addon is still in beta but I really do miss the ability to manage key bindings directly in the spellbook / macro editor. Any plans to bring that functionality to Ion?

I'm also unable to get self casting (standard Blizzard "Interface" setting) to work with Ion (can't find any in game Ion settings for it. Only a boolean "selfcast" in the settings file that doesn't seem to do anything). Is this a known bug or have I missed something?

Not yet. All I can say is don't nuke them yet, I am working on porting some of it.

All of our Mac macros, whats the easiest process to bring them to Ion?

Why was the change made? Ion vs Macaroon, what are the differences?
Right now there is nothing in yet for importing anything from Macaroon to Ion other than using Ion: Macaroon Macro Grabber to grab your Macaroon macros. The option to actually import them on Ion's side is not in yet.

Ion is in beta. It is not a finished addon. Blizzard released 5.0.4 a bit sooner than I expected.

The changes from Ion to Macaroon are many. Some are fundamental changes (such as bars that natively persists across characters) to some that are largely internal.

Blizzard made too many changes to the addon API for me to release in any practical manner a band-aided version of Macaroon, largely based on my own available time to code (or lack thereof). If I had an extra 168 hours each week, or perhaps a second primary dev for the project(s), both could be worked on in parallel and thus make the transition a bit easier.

The global GUI is not in yet. Which options will be global is still being worked out.

- I will have to recreate the bars and populate them with spells the first time I login for each character. It doesn't migrate my Macaroon configuration.
- There is no overall Gui for options. It looked like there is a /ion menu command but doesn't do anything for me. I see there is a folder called Ion-GUI but i'm not sure how to invoke it.

Thanks for the effort to keep Macaroon/Trinity alive.

this is probably a really stupid question, but did you download the plug-ins for Ion? (IE,Ion: Status Bars, Menu Bar, Bag Bar, etc...)
I didn't download them. I really only wanted the standard bars. I will eventually add the bags and menu but I use other addons for status, etc.

Are they required for the whole thing to work?

Don
well, i'd like to think so, yeah.
Ok, I downloaded the additional plugins for status, bags, menu, etc.

There was no change. Based on Maul's comments, the only thing I thought might change was having to hide Blizzard's UI twice on each load. That stayed the same too.

Since it seems to work for others, it could be a problem with my setup due to other addons causing a problem, so I will take no more of your time. Thanks for the help and I look forward to future updates.

Ok, Thanks Maul.

I don't really have any macros, so I don't believe that will help me at all.

I will try and figure out how to access the GUI. It is enabled in my addons. I don't see an icon for it. I do have Titan which supports databroker stuff.

Ok, I enabled it on Titan. Maybe I'm not understanding what the GUI is. When I click on Ion on Titan, I was expecting a window to popup. What I see is the shading on the bars changes and puts them in edit mode. If I right click on them I get the window to add buttons etc. Is this the GUI? I was looking for something similar to the old Macaroon main window that let you do things like disable blizzard bars, etc.
