How do I move companion abilities in their quick bar

Bumping this. The abilities that are mapped to the mini bar are useless and we need the flexibility to move them around.

For instance, for Khem Val I need his taunt & the aoe ability on the bar so that I can use them on demand. Taunt is there (thankfully) but the AOE is not.

What makes it worse is there doesn't appear to be any fanfare when you get a new ability so Khem had this great new ability that was breaking all my CC and I had no idea what was causing it until a sniper I was in a group with assured me that it wasn't him breaking the CC!

They're doing a big revamp of the UI "Real Soon Now!" and maybe this will be among the changes. Hope so. It's not exactly something they can just shim in during a standard weekly maintenance, so there's no point clamouring for it to be done 'immediately'.

Actually, of the various improvements I've seen people ask for, the ability to rearrange companion quickslots looks like one of the easiest.

  1. Be able to rearrange companion abilities on companion bar.
  2. Be able to place companion abilities on regular (non-companion) bars.
  3. Be able to use keybinds for an ability assigned to a quickslot even if the quickbar is hidden.
Full support for all listed!

These are still all great ideas, and would be wonderful improvements to helping control and utilize companion abilities.

I have the companion quickbar full out as i like it but would like to be able to move the abilities around,
so it would be easyer for me to check cool down timers on there abilities when in combat

first of all Great job on resurecting this thread, you sir are the necro king!

I completely agree with these suggestions. at the very least allow us to hotkey/keybind abilities while the companion bar is minimized. with some of the characters it's not a big deal , but when you're rolling around with Hk and his assasinate stack is full it'd be nice to just tab>hotkey>kill, instead of either leaving his toolbar open all the time or having to open it up tab>hotkey>close
