<p>It's incredibly annoying to disable it and still have everything my mouse hovers over get highlighted.  It REALLY detracts from what the house is supposed to look like when not being edited.</p><p>Edit: I found a solution/workaround.  This gets rid of the highlighting.  Leaving this post in case it helps someone else.</p><p>Options</p><p>User Interface (click advanced)</p><p>Target Highlight</p><p>Widget Mouseover Glow - Drag to 0</p>

<p>That is the MOST annoying thing I've ever seen.  Thanks for posting a fix.</p>

<p>I agree and the edit button has to be fixed too.</p>

<p>Switching this off means that no targets (mobs etc) will be highlighted so it's not an answer for everyone. Rothgar says that the highlighting indoors should only happen when in Edit mode, so that's what needs to be fixed.</p>

<p>It really needs changed so that when a user wants to be in edit mode and use the widget the highlighting is there, but when edit mode is disabled it stops that behavior.  Hopefully they'll patch that in at some point.</p>

<p><span style="text-decoration: line-through;">There are different sliders. </span></p><p><span style="text-decoration: line-through;">   Target Glow</span></p><p><span style="text-decoration: line-through;">   Target Encounter Glow</span></p><p><span style="text-decoration: line-through;">   Implied Target Glow</span></p><p><span style="text-decoration: line-through;">   Widget Mouseover Glow</span></p><p><span style="text-decoration: line-through;">   Character Mouseover Glow</span></p><p><span style="text-decoration: line-through;"></span></p><p><span style="text-decoration: line-through;">I've not been out of my house to check mobs, but my assumption is that the target, target encounter, implied encounter, and character will effect those things and the widget glow should only apply to the decorating widget.  If that's not the case that's another issue which needs to be addressed as well.</span></p><p>Edit:  Disabling the widget glow disables the glow for everything atm.  Waiting on fixes!</p>

<p><span style="color: #00ffff;">Yup, I agree.  The highlighting is annoying.</span></p>

<p>The problem with the workaround is it will disable glowing for all widgets.   You'll want to probably turn that back on when we fix the bug.</p><p>There's another thread going on this same issue.</p><p><a href="http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/posts/list.m?topic_id=510446" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/...topic_id=510446</a></p>

<p>in addition to the targetting issue, which i agree is the most annoying thing evah, could someone please also make that 'edit' button window draggable? or better yet removable/turn off-able? it is an annoying distraction even with the targetting glow slid to zero.</p><p>edited for spelling fail</p><p>edited again: never mind, i found the edge and dragged it away. but it wasn't obvious or easy. =P</p>

<p>the highlighting is really annoying.  the edit button being in the middle of the screen is even more annoying.  i tried moving it but it wouldn't let me.</p>

The problem is that the draggable area is somewhere ABOVE and outside the frame of the window (you might be able to drag it from below the window too, I haven't tried from there). Just mouse around the window until the cursor changes.</p><p>Good luck!</p>

<p>Or wait until tomorrow's patch when the edit button is going away.  See patch notes, but they're replacing it with a CTRL+E command instead.</p>
