Right-click chat settings and turn off what you don't want.

You getting errors just with the UI pack if so list them as you would find other addons are the cause.
Reporting errors also helps the author know the bugs if any so will encourage them to update.
Just update doesn't get any attention sorry.
Ill download and use it and try to figure out why you want an update.

I have a pretty simple question (I think), is there a way to prevent the UI from reloading every. single. time. I save something in Interface, even if it's not IBUI-related? It's driving me insane. I make a lot of changes, even in battle at times, and having it require a reload makes things very difficult.

Thanks!

Yeah using SexyMap is definitely going to interfere with that in one way or another.
One must have SexyMap.
It seems it wasn't meant to be. 💔

Outside of that I think that's the only issue. Paired with bartender this is a beauty. Nice job.
I just wanted to comment on this and I'll be able to link to it for future reference.

The micro menu is available under right clicking the Mini Map.

With regards to adding the configuration option checkbox for this as well as adding the movable unit frames, particularly "just make them movable".

My issue with requests like this is that its adding additional code to the addon that I do not use which always leads to the inevitable where it breaks and I don't even notice it has. It's additional code that needs maintaining over the years.
Fair response and highlights my lack of knowledge in the coding world.

I'll see if I can get myself comfortable with right clicking the mini map though. Life is about compromising.

The micro menu is on the minimap, just right click the minimap and the menu appears
Correct. I'd personally prefer the ability to check a box and bring it back as I fancy it.
