    @Abraxus, The text is in front of the 3d portrait for me. Per our frame level settings text should always be above the 3d portraits: http://www.wowace.com/addons/pitbull4/?page=5#c891

    @CobraA1, Titles are available with UnitPVPName(unit), the group number question has been answered numerous times in the various threads.

    @tkie, Was an issue with a library being provided by another addon, should be fixed now.

    @Hrodvintr, There's a ticket to do it, it has a ton of votes. It's sorta on my todo list but I've got a lot of other things going on so eventually probably. Soon, doubtful.

    @Loom927, You probably don't have the proper events ticked for your Health text if you're using LuaTexts. You need UNIT_HEALTH and UNIT_MAXHEALTH ticked and that should fix your issue.

    Hi, a quick question.

    My target's health doesn't want to update by itself, I have to click off then back on for it to change, any reason why it would do this? I have the exact same settings for Player health, and that works fine. The bars on target work fine, showing health changes, and power text works fine, it's just health text that stays stuck.

    Thanks in advance

    Okay, I just found out I could go back to DogTags, I thought they were lost to the update. So I have nearly completed all that I asked about. My only question left is there a way, or will there be a way in the future, to Unsplit the buffs/debuffs?

    I can't seem to post on the forums, so I am going to ask here directly. I am currently in the midst of updating Delsim's Pitbull UI to PB4. I am not the creator but I would like to replicate it down to every last detail. I will post a link to picture of his UI and then place in the DogTags code used for them to see if anyone would be able to tell me how to convert it into lua. Sorry if this is an inconvenience to the creator of Pitbull, but I am desperate and this would seem like the right place to go to since I can't post on the forums for some odd reason. http://s.wowinterface.com/preview/pvw20891.jpg

    Below the action bar is the player frame, above is the target. First I would like to ask how to write the lua for target of target Name and health, these are the dogtags: [Outline] [Name(unit="targettarget"): ClassColor(unit="targettarget")] [Outline] [PercentHP(unit="targettarget"): Percent]

    Next, the combat indicator: [Outline] [InCombat ? Append('(C)')): Red]

    Range Indicator: [ThickOutline][Color('D8D8D8')] [Range]

    And as for my final question, more directly related to Pitbull above the rest. How do I go about unsplitting Buffs/Debuffs? It's much easier to do in PB3, but I can't even find the option of fusing the two together. Again, for the sake I am trying to recreate how Delsim had buffs and debuffs displayed. Thank you for your time, again, sorry if it's a bother.

    "CombraA1: http://forums.wowace.com/showthread.php?t=16955 is a better place for LUA Text questions."

    Apparently, however, not a good place to get answers. My question remains the last post on that thread.

    Hi, I have a problem with editing texts because there's no editbox any longer at "Texts" tab: http://i28.tinypic.com/1qq05h.jpg

    Is it a bug or something like that?

    Hi all,
    I would like to share my customization to the aggro function of PitBull4. As a tank, I found it difficult to spot if I had lost aggro unless I was starting at the group unit frames. I wanted to be able to see, in the corner of my eye, whether I lost aggro. In general, the different aggro functions (border/background/health bar) were not sufficient and not nearly visible enough.

    Please visit this topic for instructions.

    Couple of qeuestions about texts:

    • Is it possible to add titles to the names? Can't figure out how to do it.
    • For raids and battlegrounds where there are multiple groups, is it possible to list my group number next to my name?

    Been loving Pitbull for quite a while now...thanks so much for the addon!

    One issue that seems to have cropped up for me since I updated, though: I have a bar setup on all frames in which the player/NPC name, level text, and class are all shown, along with a 3d portrait. In previous versions, the portrait would be behind the text, but now it's in front, so much of that text is obscured.

    Is there a 'layer' or 'view level depth' or 'z' option or something that I'm missing? I haven't changed any other settings, by the way - just updated. I need that portrait 'behind' everything else so I can see the text data.

    Thanks in advance for any help!
