Known caveats

  • You can still add players that are not on your friends list, and that don't even exist.
  • If you don't like a guild members provided note, create a new one by right clicking on their name in chat.
  • There is a known 'focus' issue where you can't right click to set focus. Rather type /focus playername to set it.
  • Doesn't show notes for new Battlegroup Random Dungeons. Doesn't break anything, just notes aren't displayed.
