    Suggestion: For enchanting, it is so cumbersome to open my back and click on the vellum to enchant a scroll. There is an addon: OneClickEnchantScroll that makes enchanting a lot simpler even with a que. It doesn't seem to mesh with this one. But if there was a way to enable the addon to work with this one, that would be awesome.

    Have come back to Skillet with the release of Cata - love the latest version. My main is a Scribe - I find that because you can trade in inks, it can distort the number of items craftable when looking at vendor / bank etc. Is there any way to make it calculate how many you can craft with actual inks available and not potentially traded inks?

    I just did some testing and to retrieve items from bank you have to turn on "Display shopping list at banks" option. To search at Auction House you have to Alt+Click item in your shopping list.

    Hello : I'm new to Skillet, having been using ATSW until now. I see from the features list that Skillet can automatically retrieve items needed to craft queued items from my bank using the shopping list. With a queued item in place when I open my bank I and display the shopping list I don't see any way to cause this retrieval to occur. Is there supposed to be a button or some widget to trigger the action? I use bagnon as my bags manager for my bank and my character. Could this be interfering with Skillet's abilities?

    While I'm on the subject, can skillet be made to search the AH for items in the shopping list? That was a nice ATSW feature, FYI.

    Let me know what you think, and thanks for a most excellent addon! I like it.

    I will be one more week out of town so you have to be patient. Leave comments, open tickets and I will check them all when I'm back.

    Hey, just wanted to say thanks for an awesome mod!

    I have but one request that I hope is simple, and that is to please add a collapse/expand all button.

    It's the only think I can think of that this mod needs... its perfect otherwise :)

    Sunhead: Number of skill-ups is displayed in the middle column in {}. There is just no up-arrow, but I will add it in future.

    2.12 is out and this issue should be solved.

    I've spent a whole day debuging Skillet in 1000 different ways and finally found the problem.
    Skillet was trying to scan your profession list in the initial event launched by Wow - TRADE_SKILL_SHOW. Everything looked fine, this scan was taking about 1sec.
    But after that Wow was doing strange things. I suppose it was launching lots of TRADE_SKILL_UPDATE events and they were all eaten by the standard UI causing lag and freeze. I changed the way it works and it's much better now.

    I noticed some discrepancies from my previous post, so I went ahead and did some experimentation.

    I first disabled all other addons for my Undead Rogue and then closed WoW completely. I then logged in to my Undead Rogue and opened LW. WoW froze for approximately 1 minute 10 seconds. I then opened First Aid and Cooking with less than 2 second freezes (NOT an issue). After that, I logged out and back in to the Rogue. All tradeskill openings were less than 2 second freeze. I then logged out, and logged in to my Tauren Warrior. Opening his Engineering, Smelting, Cooking, and First Aid all had less than a 2 second Freeze. I got the same result with my Night Elf Warrior opening all secondaries, as well as his sizable Alchemy tradeskill.

    At this point, I figured it had something to do with the first time opening a primary tradeskill after initial loading of WoW. I completely closed WoW, and then launched it fresh from my desktop. Logging in to my Rogue, I discovered a 35 second pause to open LW . Both secondary tradeskills took about 5 seconds each. All opened very quickly (2 second pause) after that.

    I'm thinking that the cache is somehow expiring, causing everything to be reloaded after a certain period of time. I'm not sure how skillet gets its information, so I really can't test much more at this point. If there is anything else I can do to help narrow this down, just let me know :)
