1086 - Extra Action Bar not showing up

Since installing Bartender4 i've yet to see the Extra Action Bar actually working. I've done numerous quests and bosses where the button is required but it never shows up. I've tried enabling/disabling it numerous times and reloading the UI each time and still no go.

It would be great if you could completely disable the Bartender4 control over this button and instead have the original blizzard extra action button show up instead, this way this problem would never show up.

What steps will reproduce the problem?
Just having the addon installed.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
The expected output is to get the extra action button showing up when it should.

What version of the product are you using?

Do you have an error log of what happened?
Nope, no errors.

Please provide any additional information below.
Nothing more to add.

    What steps will reproduce the problem?
    Just having the add-on installed and enabled.
    Enable and place the Extra Action Bar in the middle of your screen. (between your char and your bars at the bottom.)
    pick up an item that you have to use or throw during combat. (for example disabling the green traps, to use them yourself on npc's in Tanaan.)

    What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
    The expected output is to get the extra action button showing up when it should.
    Nothing shows up.!  The actual (equipped) button seems to jump outside of the screen. (visible when checking with moveanything)
    When I unlock the bars in bartender4, the extra actionbar square, shows up exactly at the location were I placed it. But there's no item in it.! The equiped button is also on the screen, but on the far left side. (But only visible when I enable the option clamp to screen in moveanything.)

    What version of the product are you using?

    Do you have an error log of what happened?
    Nope, there are no errors at all.

    Please provide any additional information below.

    Using the latest versions of Bartender 4 (v4.6.12 and MoveAnything (v15.2.7)

    There is a "extra Action Bar" in the options, double checked that ALL hide option are unchecked. Positioned between my char and the other bars. ... Till this moment it has never shown up.

    There should be a "extra Action Button" somewhere, but I still can't find it anywhere in the Bartender options. (Moveanything sais frame: Extra Action Button.  Name: ExtraActionFrameMover. Only enabled was tagged.  As soon as i also tagged Clamp to screen, for some reason the button (with the trap) appeared aon the left side of the screen. Where normally your chat is. Seems bartender moves the OUTSIDE the screen, even when you have set  the bar to the Middle!!!)

    The extra action button shows up when I select it in (the newest version of) MoveAnything and has an item equipped in it, but as soon as I go into combat or zone in/out it's gone again.
    When I don't use MA and just pick up a item, the button doesn't show up either.!

    Lock to screen in MoveAnything seems to work. The button stays on screen. but as soon as you exit it, the button jumps from the center of the screen, to the left side (edge).
    After a /reload it is again one.!

    Pitty, it seems that this problem after all those years still hasn't been fixed... :(  
    It looks like a "small"issue, but it has a major impact on your/our duties. As some also stated, you can't do anything where the extra action button is needed, when you have Bartender4 active.
    Testing is now easy btw. In Tanaan, go to the Bloodmoon area, there you have these Green traps on the ground that you can pickup and throw to your target to root it.
    For that the Extra Action Button / Bar is needed.
    ps. To be clear! I'm not talking about the extra attack option you get from the npc in your bases. (Like I use Artillery Strike  and immediately had put that one on one of my bars.)

    Have you tried adjusting the visibility of the bar? Some of them are set to "Always Hide" depending on what other add-ons you are using.

    I am having the same problem. Only recently installed Bartender4 and had no difficulty with the extra action button before. If this cannot be resolved I will have to abandon Bartender4 completely.

    I play a fury warrior and I also have the problem of no extra button appearing. It is enabled and currently set at no fade outs. Any ideas on what the conflict maybe?

    I am also having this issue. I am trying to complete the Black Prince scenario in the Thunder Forge. When the lance is ready, I click on it, it disappears, but no extra action bar shows up. I cannot complete the scenario. I'm gonna disable Bartender4 to complete this scenario. I am running the latest release.
