New Player (F2P) - UI Questions

Hey Guys,

So I'm new to game and have a few questions. I know how to move the UI around and adjust the sizes but there is one thing that bothers the living daylights out of me.
The pop-up panel that appears when you scroll over an ability, NPC, etc...
It keeps getting in the way when I engage an enemy, looking around, trading at vendors, EVERYTHING. How can I move this panel so it pops up at the side of my screen/ what is it called in the UI settings? I've attached a message of the panel to decrease confusion.
Also, any widely used Custom UI's I should try? Lua plugins? And if so, how can I download them? Thanks in advance!

That's the Tool Tip window. There is an Option to have it pop up at the mouse position or at a static position. If you enable Static Tool Tips, then you can position the window like any other UI element.

Settings>Enable Static Tool Tips then Ctrl-\ and you can move it.

As to Plugins, I am partial to MoorMap, Alerter, AltInventory and a few others Seriously though, Plugins will depend on what you want them for. You can browse through the downloads section to get an idea of what is available - don't be put off if they were posted a couple of years ago, the Lua API hasn't changed in over two years so many Plugins haven't needed any updates. I would recommend Lunarwater's Plugin Compendium to eliminate some of the simpler issues with downloading and installing them. There are two versions, one for Windows and one for Linux/Mac.

Windows:

Linux/Max:

If you like roleplaying a musician, Songbook seems quite popular.

I don't use any "bar" plugins but SeqenceBars seems to have some attractive features and is still being maintained:

There are plugins for organizing Pet and Travel skills, just search the downloads section and you will find several.

plugins

My wife and I are plugin junkies. She's even started working on a few of her own. Here is a short list of some of my favorites:

Travel Window - puts all your travel skills in one window
Daily Tasks - Managing task board items, very extensive, one of my favorites
Virtue View - Cool program for tracking your virtues, hasnt been upated in a while though
Alt Inventory - Lets you search the inventory of your alts
Alt Wallet - lets you search the wallet of your alts
statdiff - lets you compare multiples stats when you get a new piece of gear
Bevy o' Bars - create multiple shortcut bars, lots of options
Simply Notes - very simple, lets you create notes that can be shared with alts

Have fun!
