When assigning colors to various debuffs, I like try to use similar colors for different encounters. For example, for a low priority "hey heal this" i use pastels and higher priority "uh-oh" I use something a bit more saturated like lavendar (Buster cannon for instance) and "oh-shit" fast reaction debuffs I like something fluorescent like chartreuse or bright yellow ( Hex of Lethargy, Gigavolt Radiation.) It's never exactly the same color (tho I try to click the color wheel in the same spot) but I always hover around trying to choose a good color that's not too close to the class colors and prominent enough to get my attention. Now if I could create my own palette of, say, a max of 8 colors that are favorites and I can click a swatch instead of some random place on the color wheel, then I can get this done so much faster AND train myself better to react to specific colors. Cuz if I have too many choices I take a long time. But I (not you guys) need to be able to make the palette, or maybe you create a default palette that is editable.

Hi, from my bash terminal on my mac I made some script files to take my old debuffs (designated by spell name) and converted them to spell ID ( I looked up IDs in warcraft logs and wowhead as a backup.) These include Uldir, BfA and dungeons. I'll attach * my list of "", * the perl script i used to massage my SavedVariables/HealBot.lua Oh I had to rename convertToID.pl to convertToID.pl.txt because it didn't like my file extension. I updated my HealBot.lua and used it last night with 8.1.5.6 for Mekka and Blockade. Seemed ok but that's the extent of testing. I noticed some spells had the same name but different IDs (within the same encounter!): This made my sad. I used the first ID and made a note to myself to add the other one. I'll attach a screenshot of this ... As a side note: it would be nice if, in the export file, the spell name would be listed just for readability.

I have so many custom debuffs with custom colors that to re-add manually thru the UI is not gonna happen. Instead I will edit the SavedVariables/HealBot.lua file replacing "" with , so for every instance of "Gigavolt Charge" i'll replace with 286646 if you use vi: :0,$s/"spellname"//g so for Gigavolt Charge: :0,$s/"Gigavolt Charge"/286646/g will substitute the first w/2nd string across the whole file (should be 3 substitutes in all) BTW, this makes the custom debuff list pretty unreadable and makes me sad. Sometimes I like to look back on a debuff I've added and check the settings to refresh my memory on what color to look for or double-check the priority. If you could display both name and id (like in the buff drop-down) that would be ideal.
