I made a guide on my Guild forum about it AGES ago (I don't use it anymore) as some guildies were unsure of how to use it also. Hehe
Will try find it now, see if it's still there!
EDIT: Found it. It's very short, and not so great, but it gives a general idea of how to get the panels working etc.
Step 1. Choose a name for your layout and then click Create.
Your layout will then appear in the sidebar
Step 2. Click on Active Panels, and then make a name for your panel.
After doing so, your panel will appear in the middle of your screen, and the name will appear in the sidebar
Step 3. You can then use the options for the panel, and Texture Options to configure it to whatever size, shape, and skin you want it to have.
Actually not sure if the first step is necessary, but I have not played around with the AddOn for a while so I can't say for certain.
Hope this helped!

anyone know where i can get the list of all addons that ELVUI uses.... ive had a fukk full of elvui and reloading ui every 5 mins so im goin back to blizz ui but would like to know what some of the features are in lev so i can get them seperately. tx
There is no list, it's an all-in-one package.
After holding true to my own UI for years, I finally gave ElvUI a try last week. Been configuring it to resemble what I'm used to play with, and I think it's been successful. Looking forward to not having 10-20 addons to update each patch!

Power Auras Classic
As a ranged class, I find the cast bar to be one of the most important parts of my UI. Having it both large and centered allows me to focus on the fight or other parts of the UI while still knowing exactly when a cast is about to finish. Essential knowledge if you want to min/max movement, at least in my opinion.

Without all those wild colors, it feels a bit bland, but it looks better, kinda. Getting used to a lack of color. I couldn't find an option for power bars to be class colored. Only got options for mana, focus, energy, rage, runic power, ect.
Got my minimap buttons on mouseover.
After realizing I never even use my pet bar, I put on "always hide."
For some reason, Masque would not let me change the borders on my Raven buffs to white. I had to change from Caith to Dream or something. The borders changed colors on my action bars though. Probably because I haven't updated any addons in a long time xD. Also, my highlight doesn't seem to work, so my glow is gone. Makes my borders look thicker, on the buffs at least.
Having all the unit frames and the cast bar the same color felt very, very plain. I went with a lighter grey on the cast bar.
To whomever said something about getting spammed with heals, I set a threshold of 3000 minimum. That alone got rid of a lot of spam. I'll probably end up making all overheals no-show.
Edit: Noticed my debuffs are too close to my buffs, fixed that.
On MSBT, got irritated without know which of my abilities are doing what damages so I made it do abbreviated, ISS, ES, AS ect.

I see what you mean by the unit frames looking bland, but I think it looks better than having the multicoloured. Maybe you could try colouring them a different colour to see if anything else looks good too.
And yeah the borders on the buffs are a bit thick. Might be worth finding a nice new masque theme
Overall, I like it a lot better now
DeeUi in present (not big changes) - need feedback pls!! wana improve/redo it in some way but i lack ideas/inspiration
I have to recon Omni CC fonts dont have Outline Monochrome since my tries on Lua editing it didnt work ; same goes for their size it should be 10 but somehow but omni CC 10 size is much lower then rest of addons so i put 17 hope it dosent look so bad.
My addons are retarded. I set all the settings to pure black, gloss, backdrop, all that. For less than a second, I get:
But once that interval is over, it turns into:
I tried Masque:Caith, Sleek, Renaitre.. Any clue how to fix this?
(I'm surprised I got the screenshot on the first try)
Your Minimap isn't aligned with its blue handle. Same goes for your DBM.
And the box just below the Minimap is one pixel too wide. As is the box below your lowest Action bar. (Also, the SLDT text in it fills it out uncomfortably much).
They in turn are less wide than your Player frame. If you can't line up the Action bar any better; you can always reduce the Player frame.
Then there's Grid, which can be a pain to line up with anything. It's not the end of the world if it's shorter, but you should at least center it rather than lining it up along your Player frame's left side.
The Action bars along the sides should also be aligned with their respective handles in the same manner your buffs/everything else is. (The ends are too long).
I'd also reduce the size of the objective counter at the top slightly. It looks bloated, and the font is blurry likely caused by it being in the wrong size.
Ye i did realize thoose errors now and tried to adjust only prob is that stuf unitframes has some weird bug that at certain positions the one pixel border gets much thicker. Same goes for the kgpanel under map i dosent recognize decimals so the map size is x.5 and panel is x.0 but il sort that out somehow. Ty for Feedback!!!
Layout and positioning tipps also apreciated
Setting your Multisampling to 1x in your Options should fix this.
Instead, adjust the size of your Minimap so that it's even.
What I dislike in nearly all UI's here is the poor choice of colors. A good color scheme is so important for both aesthetics and functionality. Play with it, for real.
I made my borders in STUF using the background, solid black colour and set health/power bar offsets to +1.
Anyhow, going by the ''harsh criticism'', I'm now a bit lost :/. I play PvP at least half-seriously so I do like seeing exact HP values on targets and something to show class (class coloured texts currently). Perhaps class-coloured power bars and all texts to white?
Here's what my unitframes look like for now though; http://i.minus.com/ifPXCH97IXkGP.png ('censored' the mess on the bottom, reworking a lot of stuff there, wouldn't want to destroy anyone's eyes >>)
