    I used to access chat history by pressing up arrow, today I'm installed the last client/addon version and that feature does not seems to be available anymore. Any idea? Thank you.

    As of the latest version: Names in guild from linked servers ie chars in the guild but not on the guilds server now appear coloured correctly as [servername-char name]. But any char on the same server as the guild still shows as grey and uncoloured.

    The ability to colour players names ie by class does not seem to work in a guild when people type anything. There name appears in colour as it should when logging in but then it just shows all player chat as gray.

    Also its showing it in format as server-playername, is there an option to just display it as playername only?

    Hi all! Does anyone know if Chatter supports slash commands? I'd like to be able to toggle (on/off) the Chatter Fonts setting using a macro. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    It appears that the AltLinking function is no longer working properly.  No matter what I set for a suffix, it is not pulling the names from the guildnotes field anymore.
