Action Bar Saver

Quick little mod, allows you to setup different profiles for your action bars. Mainly this is for hybrid classes that want to be able to respec without spending 10-20 minutes setting their action bars up. All you do is type /abs save <name> and it'll save the location of all your spells, macros and items.

For example, if you're currently a Feral Druid you can type /abs save feral then you can respec to Resto and setup your bars, then type /abs save resto once you go respec back to Feral you can then train all your spells again and type /abs restore feral and you'll get your feral setup without all the work of actually finding where you placed things.

Works with any custom interface like Bongos provided you're not using more then the standard 120 action buttons, ones that provided features to go past 120 will cause only the standard 120 to be saved/restored. This isn't a bug however, just a limitation in the WoW AP

    @Thootem: Go

    the old version on curse/wowi still works fine

    my version only adds mount/pets and the garrison spell (the mount journal changes from 7.0 are already in)

    sezz2, any chance of you taking a look if this will work in 7.0 now?

    The best I can do is bump the .toc... seeing how Blizz just cleaned out all of my bars, setting them up again will be pain without this addon.

    @Biruta: Go

    try this one: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1365603/ActionBarSaver240.zip

    i added mounts, pets and the garrison spell (already sent shadowed the link a while ago on wowi, but he hasn't been on there for months)

    mounts don't get replaced by their crossfaction equivalent when restoring a alliance profile on a horde char, but that shouldn't be an issue

    I noticed this "bug" too. Any solution?

    I just had to say THANK YOU - it was such a nice surprise to see this updated! Your addon is one of the few that I almost reqiure in my toolkit when I play WoW. I have been using it for a few years now, even when it was classified as outdated. I can't tell you how much of a headache you've saved me when I am constantly changing UI layouts, action bars, and trees. I would have white hair by now otherwise, lol. ;-)

    Thank you so much!

    Thanks for updating. :) One thing I noticed: The addon does not save garrison spells, mounts or the random favorite mount button.

    Try editing actionbarsaver.lua and change

    local MAX_MACROS = 54 local MAX_GLOBAL_MACROS = 36

    to

    local MAX_MACROS = 198 local MAX_GLOBAL_MACROS = 180

    Hoping this will be updated for WoD / 6.0 I tested it on beta and it wouldn't save/restore macros properly.

    Any idea how to get this to properly restore hunter trap items? It says they are in error when I do a restore. They copy to the bars just fine, but don't restore.
