I recently switched to Skada over recount and omen, and I was wondering if there was an option that could automatically switch from damage to threat when I go in combat and visa versa when I go out of combat.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Yes, there is an option in the Skada configuration, called something like "Mode switching", that you can set to have it do exactly what you want. I have mine set to switch to threat during combat, then back to whatever view I was last out of combat.
right-click the menu button on Skada, and hit configure. OR hit escape, choose interface, then choose the addons tab, and find the config options there for Skada. Either way should work.
Also, check at your addons listing (at the character selection screen) and make sure that you have both modules (i.e. skada threat, skada damage) enabled there. I don't think disabled modules there will show up in the config. options.
