94 - Items not properly stacking

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. No clue, it seems to just decide it doesn't want to stack items.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I have the addon set to stack items regardless of size of stack and it's set to force stacking even if the items can't stack. So instead of three separate Amani Hex Sticks I see a stack of three. Or instead of five stacks of 20 Twilight Jasmine and one stack of 3 TJ it creates a stack of 103.

For whatever reason the addon sometimes won't stack like this and instead creates, say for example, one stack of 80 twilight jasmine and one stack of 23 twilight jasmine. Attempting to move the stack of 23 onto the stack of 80 often causes it to become a stack of 60 and a stack of 43 instead of a stack of 100 and stack of 3.

This most frequently occurs with trade goods like herbs, cloth and ore as they are often the only thing to appear in such large quantities in bags.

What version of the product are you using?

Do you have an error log of what happened?
No error is produced.

Please provide any additional information below.
The T button to clean up the bank or bag is NOT available whenever this occurs.

I do not know for certain if moving oddly stacking items from bank to inventory and back or vice versa fixes this problem. It seems to occur more in the bank than in the bags, but I might be mistaken.

    I realise this issue hasn't had any activity in almost a year, but this is still occuring, and it's bugging me. I'm using AdiBags

    For me this seems to occur only when the stacks are spread over multiple types of bags, for example two stacks in frostweave bags, and two in packs of endless pockets. When I have/had the type indicator on, this makes sense. When that's off, however, I don't care in what bag it is, I just want to see one stack.

    Perhaps this isn't a bug but intended behavior, in which case this should be considered as a feature request. Either way, I think it should be possible to have ALL items merge into one stack if one desires that.

    This bug is persisting through reloading of the UI, logging out and back in, disabling and re-enabling the addon, closing bags, switching bags, and so on. It's very weird.

    This kind of things happend to me only after moving things around. If I close and reopen the bag, the stacks are fine.

    Nope, that's having no effect.

    Here's some more information.

    In bank bag #5 I have five stacks of of 20 Bolts of Embersilk Cloth (100 bolts total) which is displaying as 100 bolts (displaying as intended).

    I also have two bolts of embersilk cloth which just display as 2 (not as intended, should display as 102).

    Moving 20 bolts from the 100 stack to a different bag properly moves 20 off into another bag. Moving that 20 bolts back into bag #5 stacks it into 100 again. However, moving the 2 bolts just continues to result in two bolts.

    If I pick up ten bolts and move them onto the two bolts, it results in two stacks of 12 bolts and 10 bolts. If I try to stack the 12 bolts onto the 10 bolts, it results in a stack of 20 bolts and a stack of 2 bolts.

    I'm not entirely sure what's going on.

    Similarly if I move ten bolts over a bag with 80 bolts, and then try to stack the ten bolts onto the 80 bolts, it results in a stack of 20 and a stack of 70.

    If I press T to forcefully stack everything after it's back in a single bag, it results in 100 and 2 bolts.

    For context, under virtual stacks in the Items category of the configuration window, I have everything checked and when trading, it shows every distinct item stack (but this doesn't apply to bank interaction).

    So what seems to be going on is that "Merge Stackable Items" and "... including incomplete stacks" is malfunctioning for some reason.

    Thanks so much for all the work you're doing on this addon!

    Does moving the items to an empty slot in the same set of bag (e.g. bagpack to backpack, or bank to bank) force the items to stack properly ?

    I've just confirmed that Bolts of cloth and Inks (all inside an inscription bag) are not stacking properly.

    On the character in question on which this usually occurs, he has an herbalism bag in his inventory, but I like to move items into similar bags (so that herbs are all in the herb bag and so on).

    However he doesn't have one in the bank and this still occurs in the bank. I've also noticed it occurring with flasks which I believe don't have a particular bag type. Same with cloth and bolts of cloth, which are also subject to this stacking bug.

    Have your toon equipped profession bags ? Is that case, could you enable bag type display please ? AdiBags does not stack items from different kind of bags.
