    Default UI improvement

    Here few things that i'd like to bring to public judgment. Firstly I find game UI at least clumsy. As heavy utility player i do have a lot of things for swap BUT that i use 5% of time. One thing that I'd like to do with all those tabs - hide them. There IS option to hide ALL UI, including your health bar - very nice for making screen shots but not practical for running any quests that are not 10 lvl below your current lvl (think favor runs) as monitoring your hp is crucial. My proposal is make each bar pinnable including health bar so you can minimize screen load and ENJOY your game, while able to get your swap bars back by pressing one key. This will help to minimize screen load and will help everyone enjoy graphics of game content. Even more most of my active abilities are bound to special keys so all i really need to see on screen is: my hp, monster hp (examine window), party member hp. I hope this idea will get support. as for screen shot taking, i really think its not a big deal to take 2 pictures at same time with and without ui.

    So what you're looking to have the ability to hide is the mini-map and your 1 mandatory shortcut bar?

    Exactly opposite - hide everything except my main bar and hp bar and exam window, while be able to pop my rest 19 bars with key combo. if I don't know something it my fault but afaik there is way to hide everything (for screenshot making), but i cant run things when i don't see my hp.

    I suggest only simplified HP bar (group members for healers

    Thelanis: Shewind the Airbender (Sorc20/Epic5 -> Bard20/Epic8 -> Rog20/Epic8/Epic2 -> Harper_FvS20/Epic4 -> Art19), Azaxe (Rog18/Wiz2 -> Sorc20/Epic6)

    Honestly, UI might be at the top of my list for things to fix/update. I think the bars and everything are a little too big overall, and look a bit dated. I hate that the D&D symbol circle button extends out of the bar at the bottom of the screen. I hate that any chat window you make has a quarter-circle cut out of the bottom left corner - even worse is that the cut is not even perfectly round! Ahg!. Then there's the Astral shard counter in the lower right... This thing is extremely ugly and awkwardly shaped. I think it should be a toggle on/off option and prepositional. But if it must be there, then shrink the xp bars down a bit, and stick the AS counter into the bottom bar. They really need to release a new UI art assets pack so that people can build custom skins again!
