    Elvui: Shortening raid frame names to 4 characters?

    Hello everyone.

    I'm trying to figure out how to exactly shorten the names on my 25m frames to 4 characters. I've looked under the ingame interface panel at raid frames --> name --> name tags to short but that still shows 10 characters. That's just too many with how small I like to keep my raidframes.

    Anyway to shorten them even further?

    Thanks!

    This isn't going to help your question directly, but I actually disable the ElvUI raid frames for healing (I use the rest of ElvUI). I find that the default raid frames tracked my Druid's HoTs in a better way.

    Just a suggestion, you may like it better. If you don't, hopefully you can find an answer

    It's okay. I actually prefer the raid frames for healing more than anything else I've tried: Grid, Grid2, Healbot, Vuhdo and standard raid frames.

    Thankfully I am a priest and don't have a TON to track that can't be tracked simply (ie Weakened Soul debuff, PW: Shield, Renew, Prayer of Mending).

    I'm just trying to make them even smaller than they currently are and trying to make my UI more minimalistic. I'm already going to take the power bar off from the frames when I get home and make dbm smaller.

    Here is my UI in an LFR, please ignore spirit flask lol

    I believe you can use "name:veryshort" to limit it too 3/4 letters
    The only things we have to fear are spiders, snakes, werewolves, sharks, dying alone, zombies, clowns, heights, big dogs, robots with human brains, Johnson's wife, and fear itself!

    Do I just type that into the frame where it says name:short, because I didn't see an option for veryshort?

    If so, that's a lifesaver! I was worried I'd have to go into the lua and I'm really not that great at that sort of thing.

    Thank you, I tried location a guide (though not as hard as I should have).

    This clears things up!

    Cheers!
