I have (hopefully) just uploaded an Addon called Easy Quick Slots. This is my first Addon and first lua program. Please let me know if there are any issues or what could be improved - esp with regards to the coding.
I've got this loaded and it appears to work great. I'm using a game pad with programmable macros so with your addon I can now bind individual hotkeys to use each quickslot. Why on earth they made the quickslot option the way they did is beyond me its a horrible design.
