A progress bar is an animated bar with optional text and icons from the game files which display for the duration of the aura. Bar style, text and the icon can be chosen from menus in the Display tab.

Group Types

A group is a collection of auras. Placing auras within a group enables the Group tab and allows mass editing of the location and graphical style settings of the entire group.

Groups can only contain individual auras. You cannot put a group within another group.

Group

Aura Interface-Group
A normal group has static positioning and anchors. When the items are displayed on the screen they will always be in the same positions.

Dynamic Group

Aura Interface-Dynamic Group
A dynamic group is a group whose positioning changes depending on which auras are active. Depending on the direction chosen in the Grow drop down menu, the group will display new auras next to each other in the chosen direction. This is useful for controlling selections of auras which may not be on the screen often enough to need their own dedicated location like trinket or armor procs.
