    I like the concept, and I think a re-think of default options, some granularity around the Autoscan feature to define the scan scope will help usability.

    For example: limited to the current zone, continent, and universe Limit to only recipes currently trainable versus all recipes for a given profession. Set which professions you wish to track, regardless of professions available to the current PC. Limit to just the current PC versus all characters on the realm.

    For myself, I'd like the defaults to be: Current zone only, with WPs clearing on a zone change and repopulating with recipes available in the new zone. Current PC professions only (it would be too confusing to track recipes for all my PCs) Currently trainable recipes (I don't anticipate leveling to 80, then going looking for all my recipes. I'd rather train recipes as I level up and gain profession skills).

    @todd0168: type /arl and look at the options menu. Uncheck the box for Autoscan.

    Ok, so if it's already in there to be able to shut off the auto waypoint feature, can you point me to where it is, because I cannot seem to find it and I really don't want to have to lag out every time I want to check my recipe list.

    All those features that you've mentioned have been added in different releases thunderkitten/todd.

    I'm not sure what happened but while I was checking, I somehow ended up with about 100 waypoints at once on minimap and the Crazy Arrow was acting like a bad case of seizure whenever I moved.  I had to use clear all waypoints before I can actually see the minimap.  I was also using Carbonite Lite as well so it may be addons conflict?

    Also when you have mouse over scanned missing recipes, there's 2 tooltip windows that is kind of blocking the view. Can't those tooltip be moved to the side of scanned recipes window?  So that I can actually see what recipe or npc I'm pointing at?

    So I'm a bit confused on this waypoint thing. I am using carbonite and when I scan for missing recipes my map gets flooded with location markers and ant trails and lags out my game. Is it possible to shut this part off yet or not? I just installed the latest version today.

    Thanks. :D

    There's been added support for this in later releases. More fine grained control on how it's implemented.

    I do use Tomtom, and I love this addition, but with one possible change?

    I don't know if it's a setting I have in ARL or Tomtom, but as soon as I scan, it populates my map with dots. I'd rather have an option to do that as I desire, rather then having it automatic. Mayhaps a button that does the function?

    Good idea, the peoblem I was having is that TomTom would create a waypoint for every recipe I moused over. Not sure if this has been updated in the new releases.

    Cartographer also has it's own built-in waypoints module with minimap display and floating arrow.

    TomTom and cartographer aren't even the same type of addon.

    Cartographer is a map addon, whereas TomTom is an addon that lets you get directions to waypoint so it's more of a waypoint addon. And by me supporting TomTom it automatically adds waypoints to Mapster/Cartogprapher/etc
