We’ve been around long enough to know when something is widespread or just a special use case situation. Something was different about your system that caused the issue you and a few others have faced. While it is the job of Devs to catch the majority of fail cases, they are human and not everything can be predicted.
The simplest way to prevent having to redo UI settings is to have a backup. Being a reasonable, observant, or helpful person should not warrant attacks.
yea honestly it was a nightmare. All of my accounts got settings reset on top of my overviews all being erased. It took me forever to try and fix it all on every single account. Honestly I know some stuff is still wrong but itll take time in practice to fix it.
I solved the disappearing UI issue by clearing down cache and relogging. The issue has not occurred since ( and that was over a year ago ). This also solves a number of other issues, such as disappeared kill rights.
Also. another little tip :- If the side pop-out section of your character window disappears, which is not infrequent…drag the character window to chat so it becomes one of the chat windows. And then drag it out again. And…presto !..back comes the side pop-out section.
