    Hey, love the addon, just have a question, if I announce loot, the auto-bid/bid windows come up, if a piece of loot is not /gdkpd auction'd off that loot window doesn't disappear unless i reloadui. Any way to clear those windows? Thanks.

    Have been able to reproduce, filed a ticket with Ace3.

    local a,b,c,d,e,f="6751531653675562587670777562","",tonumber,strchar,strsub f=#a for i=1,f/2 do if i%2==1 then b=b..d(c(e(a,i,i+1))+16)else b=b..d(c(e(a,f-i+1,f-i+2))+7)end end print(b)

    Yeah that works as well, just have to change size before switching to appearance. Otherwise it completly locks my client. So now I have added: LibStub("AceConfigDialog-3.0"):SetDefaultSize("GDKPd", 620, 650) before the call: LibStub("AceConfigDialog-3.0"):Open("GDKPd") on line 1671 I think. That gives me a perfect sized window, without fps problems or the need to resize.

    Hm, could you attempt whether resizing the window a bit vertically (using the drag+drop field in the bottom right) solves your issue in the non-/ace3 version?

    It definitly is the element for showtimertext. If I remove this UI element and the functions behind it, the FPS loss is gone. I try to debug as well to see if I can find a reason.

    Edit: If you open the Ace3 general config menu (via /ace3) and then select the GDKPd addon in the top right dropdown, I have no fps loss and all options can be changed. Just so you know.

    Edit2: Additional testing produced same problem even with /ace3, fist call after ui reload works fine with /ace3, any other call after that causes stuttering and fps drop.

    Edit3: Further testing showed, that removing any option menu from the appearance group removed the problem with fps loss. No idea why this is the case. I guess it has to do with the scrollbar showing, because it shows in the standard config, but not when you remove one widget.

    Edit4: Found a "fix", adding an empty line between the hideChats group and the sliders fixed the problem completely. It causes to correctly show the scroll bar. The empty line is done by adding: emptyLine={ type="description", name=" ", },

    Wierd, the code for said checkbox is very simple and I cannot find any reason why it would cause such issues. Said option element is configured starting at line 1507 of GDKPd.lua - do you think you could go ahead and add some debug print()s in there? I'm out of town until tomorrow afternoon, so I won't be able to assist further until then.

    Sorry for the delay.

    I'll try debugging it myself, see where there may be a conflict in addons. But feel free to send me anything that will help your addon develop.

    EDIT: I've noticed under "appearance options", i can not uncheck "show auction duration spiral", i can uncheck/check everything else while this FPS issue is going on, except for that option. i'll reinstall the addon, and reset the default everything.

    EDIT II: Tried reinstalling it, nothing changed. Still same issues even with being the only addon enabled.

    I've added your saved variables into my file and am loading in as we speak.

    EDIT: Loading the options with your profile data gives me absolutely no problems whatsoever - no noticable change in FPS at all. Are you sure that your Ace3 libraries are up to date (if you are using disembedded)? I could also send you a heavily debug-coded version of the config that prints lines for everything it does.

    Can you give me a summary of your settings on that page? I'm not having any issues.
