    I'm playing a mage right now. I just qued 12 shoulders requiring fine thread. When i opened the vendor to buy thread, it's not there. When I 'sold' my fishing pole, the button showed up. That's the most obvious example I can give at the moment.

    Re the 'Buy Reagents' button...are you speaking strictly when interacting with the shopping list, or any reagents needed for items in the Queued list? I ask because when I have several glyphs queued up and need parchment, the buy reagent button will show fine and does purchase the correct amount of items when pushed.

    interesting.  the events for visiting a vendor might have changed then... it's definitely on the list of things to address

    slickwalker is correct. The 'Buy Reagents' button is missing, when an appropriate reagenet window is open. However, as a work-around (for me, at least), all I have to do is 'sell' the vendor an item. At that point, the button does show up. Like you, slick, it feels like another addon is ove-riding the button.

    Ok. So I thought it was skinner but it's not. Might be a conflict somewhere with another addon, I'll check it out when I have time and report back if I find it.

    To recap, the "buy reagents" from merchant button is missing when visiting a merchant that sells mats on shopping list.

    I seem to have a problem with the shopping list not showing up at vendors. Bank and AH are still working fine however

    yeah, i think a collapse/expand all would be nice.

    i wasn't aware that ATSW has skill ranks, maybe i should see what's up there.

    if you have LibPeriodicTable (or LibPTSkillLevels in particular) then Skillet SHOULD provide that information in the rank bar on the right side of the screen. if you mouse over you can get the actual numbers. i will include a skill up % estimate at some point as well, but i'm still trying to figure where it would go.

    i believe the latest version of my clone branch include the LibPTTradeSkillLevels component, but maybe not... i'm kinda vague on how some of that packaging stuff works.

    You are amazing; this mod is one of a handful that take Blizzards crappy basic interface and improve it enough to make the game playable.

    That being said, I have a couple requests which are hopefully not too difficult:

    1. Please add a collapse all/expand all button
    2. Please add the crafting levels in, where it shows the skillup ranks (red, orange, yellow and green) like ATSW has.

    Those are my only requests for an already outstanding mod.

    Thanks for keeping it alive!

    It's great to see this addon worked on again. Nogudnik, please, if your not going to continue this addon, hand it over to lilsparky. Lilsparky has done some wonderful improvements, and if you ever do come back I think you should use his improvements :D.

    For my little problem, I use arkinventory as my bag manager. I know in the past you had to have a supported inventory manager in order for the addon to allow you to queue items to produce from reagents on an alt. This feature in why i really loved the addon. I can't seem to get it to work with your current version, lilsparky. Any help or a push in the right direction to fix this would be awesome. I would hate to go bag to the lag fest that is ATSW. < hate that mod.

    Thank you, Wispkeeper
