    DId Blizzard break something in the last week? Whenever I open and close my map ("M" key) i am met with an error stating: "Chatter has been blocked from an action only available to the Blizzard UI. You can disable the addon and reload the UI."

    EDIT: I disabled handy notes, and the 2 timeless isle handy note addons and no longer get the error.

    Is there any chance of an update, IDK what happened in 5.4 but on every machine it's on i use it refuses to let me set focus target, I've been forced to disable it and I hate it not being on.

    This addon looks great but it doesn't seem to work for me. I've downloaded through the curse client but when I load the game the chat box appears as normal, there is no option for Chatter in the Interface>Addons menu and I've also tried /chatter in the chat box but that doesn't work either. Any ideas?

    @Castor027: Go

    Blizzard broke/changed something with 5.4, other chat Addons that provided the same functionality are broken too. Vote here: http://www.wowace.com/addons/chatter/tickets/273-5-4-using-arrows-to-scroll-through-recently-sent-messages/

    @0xygen: Go

    Did this add on have a way to toggle off the use of the Alt key for message scroll? Pre 5.4 I could scroll thru previous messages with just the arrow keys. I'm trying to track down the add-on that changed this, because since 5.4 I now have to use the alt key.

    Hello, love the addon. One question, is there a way to open the edit box and use the arrow keys to scroll the previous entries so I don't have to retype the entry? Thank you

    Hi,

    Very nice addon! Very silly question probably, how do I prevent tabs from fading out? I want the names of the chat tabs to always be visible. Thanks ;)

    Great addon that I absolutely love, just one minor thing I can't seem to figure out. Every single time I logout and log back into the game, my fonts are all reset. Any idea what that's about?
