New action bar lock and unlock is silly

Now i hope that I am not the only person who thinks this but the old unlock button, the padlock, was very simple and not broken. You could tell when you locked and unlocked the action bars because the padlock image locked and unlocked. Now however all we have is a silly arrow that doesn't change when you click it, all it does is make a noise. I am starting to become very sick of thinking that my action bar is locked only to have one of my abilities lifted off the action bar mid fight. Could some body please explain to me why they changed a function that was not broken and that no body complained about. Why change a clear function to a very confusing one?????


Please please please change it back to how it was before.

You are not alone. I don't understand it, either and it annoys me, too. I want the padlock back. Or some other indication whether my bars are locked or not. (And no, mousing over to see whether the arrow locks or unlocks them does not count.)

They are supposed to be fixing it but how long it will take no-one knows given it neither prevents play or more importantly to them affects the CM.

Just so everyone is aware, you can see the current lock status by reading the tooltip on the right (or wherever you might have put the "large tooltip" if you have moved it with the interface editor) like few people have pointed out.

Chicktopus - I too thought initially it was a missing art asset, but it was accidently updated with the recent addition of the bank and inventory sorting. You'll see the arrow icon there for the direction of the sort.

It would be cool if they'd had a patch after that patch and the complaints started popping up...

If only.

I had previously reported it myself as a bug in game.
