The Alt+Z command is supposed to hide the the UI, all of it. But, if in a party, the health bars stay up there. What am I missing, can these be brought down?

I dont think you can, would love to for screenshots though.

Yeah it would be nice to be able to get rid of the party display when you Alt-Z. Its just an annoying interruption in your screenshot/video when you would like everything to be clear.

It is strange. It's like they made it for someone that's not in a party and just forgot that the healthbars would show up when in party. I'd like to see a fix for this, personally.

It probably WAS made for someone not in a party...say, a marketer who needed some screenies for the box, or the snap art on load screens...it just happens to be useful/convenient for the players as well.

I personally think it was originally made for people who wanted to minimize their screen clutter while playing, but still in a group.

Like, say, someone who had shortcut keyed many things, or a fighter, or someone who could rapidly alt+Z, select what they wanted, alt+Z.

I agree. Let's get that fixed.

Except that your shortcuts don't work when you hide those things... you can run around and interact with items by clicking with the mouse... just not using the hotbars.

Agreed, this needs to be addressed. I'd love to take screenshots while grouped but the party UI is always there in the way.

Is there any update on this? Did it get changed?

It's not just the party UI, it's also the AP icon. I frequently have to cut those out of the screenshots I take.

Annoying.

At one point they said they were going to fix it, but it seems to have fallen by the wayside. :(
