Hey everyone
I wish they would move that little lock at the left of the hot key bar to the top bar..
So when I am in combat and using my mouse I don't move my hot keys around or lose some!

You can change a quick bar into a box formation by adjusting its rows.. then you can lay it ontop of where that button is and cover it to prevent accidental hitting.

Stop clicking and key bind and that won't happen.

How do you even manage to click that little lock button so often? It's so small!

Genius! Shear genius I tell you!

No, seriously OP, you don't have to keybind EVERYTHING but keybind every ability you use in combat plus your medpacs and adrenals.

I don't have Heroic Moment, or my stims keybound, but stims last 1-2 hours and Heroic Moment has a 15 min (or if you don't have 5 companions done 20 min) cooldown so there's no point on binding it.

At the very least you should have 12 abilities bound (Powertech) and at most 24 (Sentinel/Marauder or Scoundrel/Operative).

Btw, 2 hot fixes for your problem:

1) practice to move & turn with your mouse, & press hotbar abilities by keyboard.

2) buy a programmable mouse, macro the abilities keys on it, and stop being a clicker.

stop clicking...teach yourself to use a razer naga. Trust's THAT good. Especially in pvp

Am I the only one who can't be bothered to hotkey...

- those 60 minute buffs
- saber forms / gas cylinders / etc...
- heroic moments
- emergency fleet pass + quick travel
- my DD Flaregun I use when I score in huttball

I never need to use them in emergency situation and I can be bothered to bind them, I'll forget them anyway.

I keep that lock locked at all times and have yet to accidentally unlock it though...
