    Tinolyn, the issue is with the blizz disable scrolling, when it does that it changes the cvar, then afterwards it loops all frames and removes mouse scroll hooks. im working on a fix.

    Looks like you'll need to do something similar to the timestamps fix with mouswheel scrolling, as well. If I turn on mousewheel in the chat interface, and its on in Chatter, it's fine. If I turn off the mousewheel scrolling in the interface, but it is on in Chatter, it works intermittently.

    I don't see the "Copy Chat" button anymore in the bottom right ever since 3.3.5 (using latest alpha version as of posting this).

    Also, the Player Names options don't seem to be working to color player names by class in the chatbox.

    I've tried checking and unchecking the enable module buttons, but that doesn't fix the problem either.

    @Spence1021 Antiarc put a fix in place a few mins ago I believe.

    New odd thing with the latest version (1.-2-2-g8bd5086).

    When people join in guild, their names are cut off. However, when they join a custom channel, they are fine.

    Here's an example for you:

    @kagaro I keep checking and rechecking the disable buttons module, but my chat frames keep resetting anyway. Anything I should look at?

    v1.2-2-g8bd5086 When someone comes online or wins an achievement, the name cuts off the last letter. So it says [Johndo] and not [Johndoe] has come online. [Johndo] has earned the achievement and it should be [Johndoe] has earned the achievement. Thanks for a very nice mod

    A suggestion for future versions:

    Now that the chat frame buttons may be more useful in the future, how about an option to scale those buttons (or create a smaller, minimalist option for the button set). My current UI hides them, but since the social button may become useful, it would be cool to have a smaller version of it that fits better into a minimalist UI.

    Thank you for the great addon.
