    'Target: Stored' and 'Show Tracker'

    Target: Stored

    This is a new Target option in the Hotbar context menus (You'll also notice a color coded triangle in the lower right of the hotbar slot when you put a targetable item in it). When you select Stored from the Target sub context menu, you'll get a Target cursor. Click on the item, character, pet, etc you wish to target. That will become the target for that item/spell/skill/macro in the hotbar slot EVERY TIME you use that particular slot.

    This will be MAJORLY useful for vetting pets, storing your ore smelts to your beetle and other such functions and is EASILY one of the top UI improvements in SA.

    Show Tracker

    In your Skills Window you'll see this button. If you add your used skills to the Custom Tab (right click the skill, Add to Custom Tab), they will then appear in a small UI listing that can be placed anywhere convenient on your screen showing the skill and the current value of that skill.

    While there are issues I have with SA graphically, There are two UI enhancements that I REALLY am glad to see added in so, I wanted to post something not entirely gripy about SA.

    Whoaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

    Is it only me that haven't noticed until now that you can store items on hotbars?!

    Now we can do it! And we can set whatever we have in our backpacks on hotbars, that means that we can store all the things in our backpacks!

    We can now recall back to our house with one key.

    This is a great feature newly added with the "stored" option, I think.

    You could always put everything on your hotbars in KR... the Stored feature allows you to store a specific target, so no need for Target Last, every Stored target is done so independently. So if you had a Tamer Healer in a party, you could be vetting your pet with Stored, targeting a monster with Current, healing yourself with Self and a friend with TargetCursorLast (for example)... or if you had a pack of pets, you could have a separate bandage slot for each pet.
     
  4. I hope they put back in the Friends option from KR, very usefull for knowing when certain people are on for my red in fel!

    target stored is a fabulous addition. I have my pet set to bandage, with the hotbar slot right next to my pet bar, I can see his health, my bandy count and the timer counting while healing him with a key stroke. I have a recall key that takes me straight home, and another set to a different book that takes me to the bank.
