Missing UI Features

With the updated UI customization I was expecting:
  • Movable Pop-up Windows
  • Resizable Pop-up Windows
  • Resizable Main Map

Am I missing how to do this? The window frustration when opening a character sheet, inventory, etc. was what bugged me the most about the UI and that apparently hasn't changed.

And now that I have everything else scaled the way I want it, I still can't do anything about the large overhead map.

It's a start, but not done, and a little late.

While you can't resize the windows yet (and that is feedback I'll pass to the team!), you can indeed move them around. Open the UI Editor and check "Enable Movable Secondary Window."

You get creative, figure out what you need and what you don't need. On my 50 merc healer for example, I'm not going to be using Rocket Punch a lot, so I remove it from my action bars. If i ever need it again, I open my ability panel and bring it back on.

Also missing: The ability to detach/resize buff/debuff icons from the player frame and the target frame. This would be a very helpful feature for quite a few classes, such as jedi balance shadows, lightning sorcerers, and lethality snipers. We need a better method of tracking our dots and procs, particularly on operations bosses where multiple classes of the same type might be present. I run my jedi shadow as balance, with another balance shadow and a balance sage. It is currently impossible to tell whose debuffs belong to whom, and it is quite frustrating and leads to a lot of early refreshes, which leads to lower DPS for all three.
Yo. Droid companions need an operations vendor, too. My extra coms have to go somewhere, and I'd prefer SCORPIO to Kaliyo.

We shouldn't have to open a window editor.
We should be able to grab a window, move it and re-size it right there.
Plus ALL the windows should come up and not have one window close one another out!
Please stop making things so complicated and start making things more user friendly.

Is there a way to move/resize the pvp specific UI stuff? (the map, score tracker, etc...) Mine was in the upper right corner but then got bumped to the left when I was playing with other UI elements and is really in the way now.
