Mouseover Macros Stopped Working

I logged into the game this evening to discover that my mouseover macros have stopped working. I recently switched to another computer and do not have any 3rd party add-ons currently applied to the game. I have switched my keyboard and mouse twice in hopes that perhaps it was a driver issue, but yielded the same results. I do not believe the wording on the macro is incorrect for I have used the same macros for quite a few years, and today have had other players check one of the macros on their systems to not have any issue.

Just in case, here is one of the macros I employ
#showtooltip Greater Heal
/cast [target=mouseover,exists] Greater Heal; Greater Heal

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I don't think they removed any functionality like that, but I know the norm is now the character saving "@mouseover" "@target" "@focus"

other than that I am at a loss as well. hope that works

If you put this macro on a mouse button it won't work, that could have been the issue.

If your issue is binding a macro to a mouse button, you will need a program that remap mouse buttons to keyboard keys. Just google "mouse button remapping" and you will find those programs. What will happen is: you press a mouse button, that program intercept the mouse key press and sends a keyboard key press to WoW. If that keyboard key is bound to some macro then the macro will work with the mouse button.
