In this episode we take a look at TonicBars by NuclearTonic. This plugin allows you to create multiple action bars that have a variety of customizations including size, visibility in combat only, visibility only when ctrl, shift, and/or alt is pressed, opacity, and even if it extends out additional quickslots. Although it’s a little buggy with how the extensions are implemented, once they are set up it’s a great plugin that allows for quite a bit of customization. This is one of the plugins that I’ll be keeping up on most of my characters.
There is one drawback that some people will really dislike and that for some reason the bars I have set up do not disappear when I hide the interface when I hit the F12 key. I’m not sure if this is a flaw with Lua or something that can be changed in the plugin itself. Either way, I hope that this is something that is resolved because this is definitely a dealbreaker for some individuals. Of course you could just unload and reload your plugins, but that seems like an unnecessary inconvenience.
