MoveAnything

MA Window

MoveAnything enables you to move, scale, hide and adjust transparency of just about any screen element in WoW, offering tools to help you customize your UI. Some other frame modifications are also possible using MA's Frame Editors (Introduced in 11.b2), including framestrata, frame grouping and more.

Type /move to show the main window or click the button below the game menu. This main window contains a list of Blizzard's frames (any element not in the list can be added to the Custom Frames category by either /move frameName, /mafe frameName, /hide frameName or one of the move/mafe/hide keybindings).

Currently maintained by Resike. Many thanks to Alea of Гордунни EU who maintained it since the launch of MoP. Special thanks to Wagthaa of Earthen Ring EU who was the developer since the pre-WotLK patch. Kudos to Skrag (Original author), Jason (Vanilla) & Vincent (TBC) for earlier versions.

Movers:

  • Raid Boss Alternative Bar - mover for player/boss addition indicator (like The Stone Guard progress bar)

Reporting Bugs: Report bugs here - Include the LUA error message if applicable!
If the problem is with a certain frame, always try to reset the frame and reload before modifying it again. If the problem persists please report it at the above link.
Make sure you are running the latest version! You would be surprised how much time is wasted by reports of issues that are already resolved.
The LUA error message should be from an addon such as Swatter(a part of Auctioneer) or BugSack if at all possible. If the issue you are reporting is the result of a LUA error and you don't include this you might as well not bother posting.
If you feel like being helpful include your MA profile as an exported textstring in the report.
Any comment on Curse or forum post on WoWInterface containing a full error report will be deleted, as one of those quickly takes up more than half a page.

Tips: - Work in progress

  • Quickest way to modify a frame - Go into Keybindings, scroll down to MoveAnything and bind a key to "Move Frame - Safe". They key you bound now toggles a mover on the topmost frame underneath your mouse cursor.
  • Easiest way to reset a frame - Bind a key to "Reset Frame - Safe" as described above and press it while hovering your mouse cursor above the element you want to reset. Check the chatframe to verify it's the right frame before clicking the key again to confirm.
  • Moved something by mistake - Type /unmove last and it will reset the last frame you interacted with.
  • Figuring out frame names for use with /move, /hide, /mafe and /unmove - Use the "FS" checkbox to show Blizzard's Frame Stack tooltip. This tooltip displays a list of frames currently underneath your mouse cursor, divided by what screen layer they are in(aka framestrata).

Current issues:

  • Frames jumping when switching graphics from windowed to windowed-maximized mode have been reported.

    @SillySith: Go

    It's gonna be in MoveAnything 2, but might be added into this addon too later.

    Yes you can move any frame which has a global name with the "/move frameName" command. You can get a frames name with the "/fstack" command via the built in wow framestack.

    I have a question about a feature. Don't see it in options and was wondering if it could be added.

    Could you provide an option to "lock" and "unlock" frames so we can move them "on the fly" (while playing in game) without going into the actual addon? I use blizzmove for this feature but it does not have near the customization that moveanything has.

    If this feature is included already, I cannot find it.

    Thank you for this addon. It's so cool.

    I've been using Moveanything for such a long time, love it Resike! One thing I have never tried to do, and now would like to... is to move other addon windows/panes, such as Auctionator's main window. Is it possible to use Moveanything to move Auctionator's UI?

    Thanks Resike :)

    Even after using the FS to identify the windows, I am unable to locate and/or move the ItemUpgradeAlertFrame or the other windows which pop-up when you get an item as loot or a loot item is upgraded.

    ItemUpgradeAlertFrame was the name of one, and ID with a long series of numbers seemed to be the other frame.

    Any idea of the correct names so I can move them?

    ItemUpgradeAlertFrame registers when I type it in, but no frames pop up for me to move.

    Thank you in advance.

    When I try to scale target debuffs they seem to completely disappear. I've tried resetting, but still no luck.
