    I have taken over maintenance of KevTool Queue, an addon which allows you to automatically queue items up for crafting in Skillet with a simple command. I have found the combination of Skillet, LilSparky's Workshop, and KTQ to be extremely powerful. It saves me an enormous amount of time on my daily crafting chores.

    I've posted a new version of KTQ with some updates for WoW 5.3. If you'd like to check it out, please go to:

    Or search for KevTool Queue in the Curse client.

    Major changes to a TradeSkillLink in 5.3. See for details.

    Is there a way to access Skillet without resorting to activating one of my professions? Maybe a mini-map button? Any assistance in this matter would be appreciated.

    Hello - Once 4.3 dropped if I have craftable items queued the shopping list no longer opens automagically at the AH nor at my bank. I don't know about the guild bank functionality. I can of course manually open the list but then I cannot use the list to retrieve the needed items. Alt-clicking on listed items throws an error, but that hasn't worked since I've used the addon so I'm not concerned with it.

    I've double checked the addon settings and things should be working. I see no errors via BugGrabber. Anyone else experiencing this behavior? let me know what you think, and thanks for a most excellent addon.

    Skillet works for me(tm) as of 4.3. Just set WoW to load out-of-date addons or mess up with Skillet.toc and set Interface to 40300. :)

    Are you around and still playing WoW? Can we expect an update for 4.3 in the near future?

    how to modify the width of the main frame of skillet? I use "LilSparky's Workshop" which occupies some space in the recipe frame, so the long names of some recipes cannot be shown fully.
