    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.

    Is there any sort of ETA when routing highlights through MSBT will be fixed? I eagerly anticipate every update and it still doesnt seem to be fixed :( I can live without brackets around realid real names and only char names and or diablo/starcraft names but the highlight broadcasting through miks is the best thing i love about this addon. Other than that its a great addon!

    @Stanzilla, I'm running diffs on most of addon updates, to see what's changed. As you can see, I'm spotting quite some number of inconsistences now and then.
    In this specific case, I was raising a concern about the code line removal. Though, all seems to be working fine so far.

    This is my signature. There's many like it, but this one is mine.

    Not sure what you are talking about?

    Any chance of looking at whats causing the taint, when receiving whispers?

    If i need to switch glyphs / talents, and i have received a whisper since logging in, i have to reload. I can then immediately change glyphs / talents with no issues, but if i receive a tell before making the switches, the taint occurs again and i am forced to reload again.

    -   self:RegisterEvent("CHAT_MSG_SAY", "ParseChat")

    Are you serious about this change?

    The one chat related feature I need that is missing from Chatter is inline highlighting. Basically I want the words highlighted in the chat window, not redirected or duplicated through other alerts. e.g. I add all my toon names so whenever someone mentions one of my names it's in bright red in the text so it stands out as I look through chat or see messages coming in. No need for seeing an additional alert or a special window and am able to see the highlights inline in chat history. I still use an old Ace2 addon called ChatHighlighter that does this. It would be nice if it was built into Chatter's highlight feature.
