Notes about the Key Mappings
The user.ini file is needed to enable all the additional key mappings
supported by the Byrin mod. Important key combos follow-

# = Main hotbar
Ctrl-# = Horizontal Hotbar 2
Alt-# = Horizontal Hotbar 3
Shift-# = Main Hotbar Bank #
Ctrl-Shift-# = Hotbar 2 Bank #

Instructions for use
To make macros that choose a recipe (skip this if you already know):
Right-click on one of the 20 slots to open the macro editor.
Title your recipe (short titles work best).
In the macro commands area, use Code:
/refinesetrecipe "Full Name of the Recipe You Want"
Do include the quotes, and type the recipe name exactly as it appears in your recipe book, including capitalization, punctuation and spaces. If you want the words you typed in the title above to show in the button instead of the icon, check the "Text-only macro" check box and click create button.
To duplicate a macro:
If you use this mod, this is a skill you're going to want to learn. To duplicate a macro, right click on the macro to open the edit window. With the edit window open, drag the macro button from it's current slot on the hotbar to any unused slot. Then click the "Create" button in the edit window.

Table-Setup: Useable Item List redone to show more items at once.
Table-Setup: Switch to Text-Only-Mode to see even more items!
Table-Setup: You can place 12 Text-Macros with /refineadditem "xxx" entries. Example:
/refineadditem "Water"
/refineadditem "Adhesive"
/refineadditem "Bandages"
-if you put the above 3 lines in a macro and label it something like Common (be sure to use text only mode) you can click that button to add a stack of each of the 3 items to you table, great time and click saver.
Group Member Hotbars
This is a great little set of hotbars I adapted from the core group window. It is toggable from the main menu and can be resize to show up to a whole back of hot keys in six rows. Each row corresponds to 1-6 of the group members, row 1 always being yourself, 2 being group member 1, etc. Each row had built in target command to target the corresponding group member before executing what ever macro, spell, ability, etc you put the slots. Super tool for healing and buffing, and defending.
Byrin Effect Windows
Your beneficial effects window will scroll vertically down, you can resize the window to show only time and icon. NOTE- the window will not resize automatically, any buffs below the bottom of the window will not be displayed, resize accordingly.
(NOTE: if you want you timers to refresh normally and don't mind the buffs below the bottom of buff window not being displayed when list is too long, the you can edit the ByrinSpellEffects.xml file and common out the scrolling beneficial effect window and uncomment the original beneficial effects window.)
Your harmful effects window will scroll vertically up from a position around 400px down from top of the window, and will display about 15 negative effects before running out of room. NOTE- to resize this window it's helpful to log on to a bard character and start a song (for some reason bard songs are displayed here, it's a default thing), that will show you the first slot in the list, then resize accordingly.

Core - Used some of the windows, and crafting code from the Core3 UI
Maddycraft - Used maddy table set up which also includes Mothers crafting hotbar
FOZZIK - Used small diplo card strategy window
Infomap - Used Infomap 1.8 modified with my Small Riftways

Hi Byrin, I sent you a PM several weeks ago.

With your permission, I'd like to add Byrin Gold to CustomUI.

CustomUI currently includes all the components from Drox, Darker, Core, and myUI.

With the next version, I plan to add ManicUI and, with your permission, Byrin Gold.

Also, I didn't see this mentioned in your update notes, have you replaced all uses of the /showwindow, /hidewindow, and /togglewindow commands ?

They will not work with GU6.
