Actually it is working the way they intended, the code intentionally resets your setting when you hide it, but it's stupid regardless. That problem has been with WoW for at least 5 years.
My solution was to find a permanent place for it, and make it always show.
who cares. it takes half a second to press shift m when you want it on/off. this is hardly something to keep posting about.
According to the intentional way the code is written to handle it, and the fact they refused to change it in over 5 years of it working that way, yes. Doesn't mean it isn't stupid. And don't forget the part where manually turning it off means you never want it to automatically show again.
All they would need to do is remove a few lines of code to fix both those problems, but those lines were intentionally added for some reason.
I have a custom addon I made to bypass all this crap and force it to always show, and also modify and enhance it in various ways. Being somebody else finally complained about it, I might convert it to something that will fix the stupid way Blizzard handles it, and allow the user to choose how/when it is shown. But I would need time and the motivation to actually bother doing it. Currently I'm not thrilled with the way Blizzard is handling many things I care about, so the motivation to play or even bother writing more code is pretty low at this point, but I'll see what I can do in the next few weeks.
