    Is it somehow possible to limit the number of edit boxes to one? I have two chat windows, one for general stuff (left) and one for raid/party/guild chat (right). With the new chat system the edit box now opens on the window I have clicked the last, which is absolutely irritating.

    Making the window non interactive is no solution, since I then cannot click the names to whisper etc.

    Also, alt names don't seem to be working for me. Neither does it show guild notes nor manually added "Set Main" notes.

    Zidmo, ill think about adding it back in again on the upper left corner. depending on what side you dock the chat frame the resizer region is in the corner opposite. ive been more focused on bug fies right now over anything else. the previous add button to a build was a copy and paste so taking it out was only a second. Either case its accessible in the tab menu.

    Was it necessary to remove the chat copy button? BasicChatMods has a copy button for the chat frame that works without issues. Be nice to see one back in Chatter.

    About the removed Copy Chat icon, would it be possible to move it to the Other bottom corner? Instead of being on the RIGHT BOTTOM corner, possibly put it on the LEFT bottom corner?

    Shabazza, CopyChat is accessible in the chat tab, the icon is gone not sure when it as removed, but its no longer in the code, just in the chat tab menu. UPDATE: I re-added the icon

    redrenius,angrysteel: when a auto whisper window is made, i got and copy that whisper form whenevereditbox is lives in. Blizz code is supposed todo it, but doesnt all the time. Im fixing it now, so it shouldnt double copy messages. and not loose the initial.

    Also working on fixing the mouse not working for edits int he editbox.

    the copychat function doesn't work. The icon on the bottom right of the chat frame isn't there anymore.

    regards, Sha
