Usability-wise, as long as you can select a group with one click, the treeview will be fine. One of the things I miss from old layout was being able to select the aura you're editing with one click (although i had several pages, so sometimes you had to change the page first, which is like groups are now, but still).

Don't touch it, it's perfect right now :P

Hopefully this will guide people to use the addon in the "right" way, to actually use the groups that is. I know this would suit my needs well, at least.

Srollable is faster for the user in my opinion, but of course the dev point of view is important as well, even more so if WoW has problems handling scrollable windows in the first place. I'd prefer a working scrollable window over a working paged window, but a working paged window over a buggy scrollable window. (that came out very complicated).

Honestly, I still would have opted for polishing out the functionality and weeding out bugs over a UI 'overhaul', but I understand why the general mood of the feedback made you choose otherwise.

I get that, of course it's made for another purpose (You're not supposed to actually see anything on the screen when you're in the settings). I'm just having some issues putting my thoughts to words in regards to how that type could be usable for powa as well.
