Does it show recipes across characters as well?

No. For that I might recommend Altoholic. While Altoholic doesn't build a list of missing recipes as Ackis does, it keeps all of your crafting lists in one place. Also, whenever you run across a recipe or scroll, it will tell you who knows it, who can learn it, and who WILL be able to learn it when they skill up enough, along with that current character's skill level.For example, I have a level 450 cook and a level 150 cook that I raised only to cook deviate fish. If I run across, say, the recipe for Mok'nathal Short Ribs, Altoholic sticks in its tooltip:Already known by EleriWill be learnable by Maranwe (150)Pretty handy, really.

I've used altoholic in the past and loved it, but unfortunately found it much too much of a resource hog to justify using.

It will save tradeskills from other characters (go to Misc options to see where you can select them from) and you can scan them. Adding functionality for saying which recipes/etc are needed is being worked on, but not in the current release.

While I don't think it shows a scanned unknown recipe list across characters, it can put a prof. link in your chat box from other characters. It's under the Misc filter option. It shows a little arrow, and when you select it, it gives you the option to choose a toon, then a profession, from any of your toons that have been scanned. So you can tell someone else what your alt is capable of making. May even let you link, but I haven't looked or tried that yet. :)The only time I have issues with this is if I'm on my bank-alt, since she's level one and ARL can't scan anything for her. Therefor, no links for her either. :p

Thanks for the info everyone!

Use "recipeknown" with ackis, recipeknown is light weight and adds that missing functionality ackis doesn't have only, no need for redundancy and having two addons doing same thing, so just get recipeknown to fill the hole vs another bigger package.

Well, my apologies for the misinformation, then. It wasn't long ago that I used this addon, but things were obviously added since I removed it....
