Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: My antivirus says that this program is virus!
A: If your antivirus detects this program as trojan, you probably have McAfee, Comodo, eSafe or Prevx. They don't know anything about exe-optimization-by-hands and UPX. Therefore I recommend to change antivirus.

Q: What's all those BLP settings for?
A: Check butman_readme_eng.txt.



Change log for v1.8.2:
  • Extended PNG support
  • Fixed bug when saving icon with enabled transparency view
  • Fixed bug with incorrent saving in JPEG format

    Simply the best. Lots of functions and easy to use.

    It could be nice to add a option to transform a single icon via dragging and dropping in the program's window, without having to manually select origin and destination folders.

    Anyway, it is still kinda better for mass border-rizing, so it's cool.

    EDIT: Love the auto resize function!

    It's an extremely simple tool altogether-opening, editing, and saving. Definitely useful.

    When I try to make the "Envenomed Weapons" icon a button instead of a passive, when I try to put the picture in the program the following shows up:
    EDIT: The picture wasn't posted for some reason, so I am just gonna write it out: When I try to put a picture in the program, it says "Unsupported or incorrect file format". So what am I doing wrong? First time I put the picture in, the format was .png, that didn't work, so I tried .jpg and .jpeg, and none of them work. Same message everytime. So what am I supposed to do? You said .png, .jpg and .jpeg are all supported?!

    There is already a BTN version of that icon in the game if you haven't noticed yet : ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtons\BTNEnvenomedSpear.blp
    That's odd, I have never experienced this kind of bug before, what is the size of the image you are trying to convert?

    I don't know why this glitch was happening, but I just downloaded the same program from the same guy from this site: Button Manager - Wc3C.net and it works just fine.

    I've encountered an error where I used an icon from WoW and the manager couldn't process it in 'button', 'passive', 'autocast', and 'disabled'. Whenever I tried clicking on these options a prompt with no text pops up

    That image doesn't appear to have been uploaded correctly. Try attaching it through Hive's system instead.

    In what format are those WoW icons? By the way, you don't really need to export WoW icons to make them fit for wc3 when you can simply download those icons from the internet and use this tool to customize them.

    That's what I did. They're in .png format. I was able to use a few of them without any problems, but for some reason I couldn't use the majority of it. They all have the same format

    I tried to work around this error by directly copying the image and saving it as a new file, but it still wouldn't work. I tried saving it in .jpeg, and it still wouldn't work. I also tried taking a screenshot of the icon, cropping it and resizing it, then saving it as a new file, but it still wouldn't work.

    I was able to resolve this exact issue by doing Tools->Fit to size 64x64
