Here's a mod that I discovered as part of a UI compilation I've been building off of (LUI). It's called Reflux and it's a lightweight but ingenious tool for synchronizing your UI settings across characters. Once you have it set up on one character just the way you like it, save it as a Reflux profile and it'll deal with your addons the best way it can; if they support profiles using the Ace2/3DB framework, it'll make one and reference it, or if they don't it'll just create it's own little pseudo-profile for the addon and package it all up in one Reflux profile.
So basically once you save your UI under one character, you can log over to another and type
where "myUI" is the name of your particular profile. It's the kind of thing I wish would be included by default.Code:/reflux switch myUI
You can also get creative with it and have one UI for soloing, one for raiding, etc. and load them all as the situation warrants. Food for thought
Disclaimer: I didn't make this mod or LUI, just thought I'd pass along the suggestion to you guys.
