    Hey guys, so I'm having a tiny quality of life issue I was wondering if anyone knew how to fix.

    I have the "edit" box (the box t hat pops up when you hit enter, where you type) unlocked and moved to the top of the chat window so it's easier for me to see instead of all the way at the bottom of the screen under the chat box.

    I really, really love the ability to do this. Until very recently (I stopped playing in 5.0.X and just came back in 5.3) the edit box is at the top of the chat window still like it should be, except it appears on the same line as the chat window tabs.

    So if I mouse over the chat window and then press enter to start typing, I can't really see what it is I'm typing since my General / Real ID / "Stuff" tab labels are on that same line. Now, this isn't where I moved the edit box to obviously, I moved it slightly above that. The problem is if I log out and back in, the edit box moves down to that line. If I disable the "edit box polish" option by unchecking and rechecking it, the edit box moves to where I set it.

    I know this is pretty long winded for such a small, insignificant issue, but I would appreciate if anyone had the first clue as to how to rectify this :(

    Hi!

    Two questions.

    Does the tab flashing feature work for all tabs? I can't seem to get that working. For instance, I have a separate tab for all the guild channels, and it doesn't flash if I'm not at that tab and someone said something there.

    Also, is there a way to turn off mouse wheel scrolling through tabs?

    Thanks!

    Any idea why invite links aren't working?

    Not sure this is the right place for idea suggestions, but here it goes anyway.

    I dont know whether it is possible at all, but I'd love to see an option to have the chat window to be adapted based on zone parameters.

    e.g. When I fly into a major city I would like my chat window be a lot larger, so I can more easily follow any conversations that are going on (especially on busy servers it can be a pain to track a conversation), and when I am outside the city for the window to be small again so it is not in the way when I am going about questing / farming etc.

    I can't seem to get Chatter to make play a sound when receiving an incoming whisper, for example. The Highlights module seems to provide this functionality, but I simply get nothing by going to Highlights/Custom Channel Sounds/Incoming Whisper and selecting a sound. Am I missing something or is the module not working properly?

    Sometimes after login or after a bootscreen my second chattab is empty. Every setting are gone.

    how can i disable the option that the chattabs come on top, when i loot or cross the zones?

    Any idea why the class colours are not working? If you /who or shift click on them fine it saves them after but surely it should just auto get them like prat. Im liking the addon other than that and would like to keep using it.

    I'm having an issue where the chat windows are underneath the rest of the UI on logon. If I switch tabs on a chat window they come back on top, but is there anyway to automate this process?

    found a minor error in the GroupSay module

    for the items for /instance, /raid, and /party the shortcode should be "/i "(add a space after the i)

    same for party and raid. there needs to be a space after "/ra " instead of "/ra" etc

    It's easy to correct manually in the LUA but should be added to the next update.
