View Full Version : UI Settings question

07-01-2009, 05:57 AM
Hi Im new to the forums I did some searching and couldnt find an answer to what I think is a simple question so here goes. I was wondering what/which files you need to copy between characters to have them share the same layout, window positions, firends lists, macros, keybinds and settings. I have tried copying subfolders inside the WTF folder as well as the inndividual files themselves and as this works for some/most of the layout etc. it doesnt copy everything. Any ideas or direction plz? Thanks in advance ;p

Check your addon profiles section. They might be there but not by default.

Some of the addons have profiles which is obviously not an issue but Im more concerned with ex. chat windows positions, amount etc. I assume there has to be some files that contain these settings that I could just copy over from 1 toon to another same account or a different account.
