    Combat Text numbers & ElvUI

    First of all, I'm not sure this has to do with ElvUI - that's just my assumption from having used Parrot (my damage text addon) for a long time - even now.

    My problem is that despite what I do with the options, no damage numbers will show up over my target's head. I don't really know what else I need to share, so if anyone's made any wiser by this, please share.

    Remember, when you apply changes to activate/deactivate "head-over-dmg", you need to restart wow.

    I've had the option activated for months without seeing it, so I don't think that's the problem.

    I've never used Parrot(I've always use MSBT) so I don't know that addons options. So if I understand your question right, you want the standard Blizzard Floating Combat Text enabled in WoW's default options. Esc -> Interfacr -> Floating Combat Text -> enable combat text on target.

    ElvUI doesn't do anything with combat texts except change the font the Blizzard one uses. (Which requires a full closure and relaunch to take effect)

    Hope that helps, if not provide more info please

    After some testing, I noticed that it's actually Parrot that's the culprit. I tried fiddling with Parrot's options, but I can't get any results. I have enabled combat text, and that does not do anything at all when the addon's active.

    Parrot internally disables Blizzard's floating combat text - if Parrot is on, built-in FCT won't work.

    The newest version of Parrot enabled per-spec triggers, among other things - maybe those aren't flagging right?
