    I can't believe this is something I read about only recently. It has probably been in the game since I started playing. I brought it up in guild conversation and about half the people knew, half didn't. So here is a topic to help inform even more people.

    There is a way to undock health bars stuck together without having to close them all. Simply press Alt + Left-Click on the bar you want to move. Doing so releases it from the rest. The bar you clicked can now be dragged away or closed. If you press Alt + Control + Left-Click, you can drag the bar away without having to click a second time.

    This is for the 2D client. I don't know if it works in Kingdom Reborn as well.

    I doubt any of the new uo employees know about this stuff let alone new players xD

    These are the kinds of things they need to give newbies access to so they aren't floundering helplessly when they join the game without a mentor. It's just like logging into second life for the first time and not knowing wtf to do, getting frustrated, and just quitting.

    It's the little things that matter :)

    Good tip.

    agreed, good tip :)
    often wondered the same.
     
  4. You can also just hold down Ctrl and drag the bar, does the same thing just less keys :)

    Been here since 97 and I never knew that. Nice. Thanks. That's two posts in a row thanking someone for being helpful. I hope the helpful thing is a trend that catches on with more people. Thanks again!

    This is new information, I believe its in the play guide, or somewhere quite easily available. Maybe in the Codex of Wisdom? I seemed to always have known it.

    I just checked again to be sure and this is not working for me. Can you please explain in more detail how you are doing it with just the control key?
