As a point of interface design, I assume that people will complain if they don't like what they see. By that test, the standard order giving the XP bar priority has been canon for years, both in the default UI and in ProfitUI.

Thank you for doing that. I honestly believe that the majority of user (including me) prefer it that way.

Titlebar and frame settings are also used on hotbars to show countdown timers and hopefully people figure that out too.
Yes. Good point. I think most users don't know that the coding of ProfitUI uses the frame and title bar settings to select variants of some windows.

None for xp bar only
Good. This is the way I think it should stay for now, especially so that mouseover toggles what you see.

New file below.
That was actually one of the questions I was going to ask. I was very curious what specific code drove that option.

So... I will push the latest version of the XP window to the updater so that people will see the behavior that they have seen in the past. We can work on figuring out how to make it a selectable option or variant file or whatever. I believe in giving people all possible choices, so I'm in favor of making this change if we can figure out how to do that.

Zidu, thank you for all your hard work and thank you for understanding that all of your ideas might not make it to prime time. This is exactly the sort of discussion that makes ProfitUI Community Edition what it claims to be.
