    Since last patch, Realm names show after player names, even tho they are in my realm. Any way to disable this? Its really annoying.

    is it just me or did 5.4.7 break showing "Main" names in chat. I see it when they login still, but when they talk in chat, I do not see their main name anymore. I have tried to reset the main name for the person and that does not help. This is a great feature that I really love, and would hate to see it stop working. I am using the latest alpha build from Dec 16th.

    Ok, I just recently got back into playing the game, and I used to use this addon in my interface. However, I seem to be having an issue now that causes me to not be able to read what people whisper to me. Any idea what could possibly be causing this?

    Is there a way to have the text inside a chat window align right instead of the default (align left)?

    I ask this because I use two chat windows, one on the left and one on the right. The one on the right looks weird with text aligned left.

    Any chance we could have non-latin alphabets show up in chat/names etc. rather than "????????????" ?

    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?
