    Hello, This big addon have not 2 important things please.. 1. To remove the necesity to use Alt key when we are doing things (selecting words etc) in chat and 2. Cant resize the chat frame on all screen (to take a screen with more chat etc) - this is simple, copy in chatter folder the file don't_disable from the addon BasicChatMod. Open up chatter.toc file and under all the other modules listed type: dont_disable.lua (i saw this solution in a forum). Also please put last versions on wowinterface too

    Hello authors.

    I am having this problem with the addon that I cannot right click a name in the chat and press target. I nor can write /tar copy the name and paste it since it will say that is has been blocked by the addon. However if I write the name instead of copying I can.

    But my question is, do u have any plans to add the /target function to right click on names

    And also another thing, is there any way that when you lets say copy something from the copy frame that the bar where you write in doesnt close down?

    I have been enjoying Chatter quite a bit, but I do have one question.

    Is there a way to disable the arrow/cursor buttons/scrollback chat history? I don't really use/need that feature and use the arrow keys so I can still move when the chat window is open.

    But with Chatter I just get scrollback now if I move when the chat window is open.

    Like to say nice work on Chatter. Best Chat addon yet in my opinion. There is one bug that I believe I have found. When setting the Background and Border textures, in the Edit Box polish section, It doesn't save the selections in the savedvariables.lua files. It just keeps the defaults. Any help would be great.

    Yoshimo might be a localization issue there are about 16 german localizations missing.

    My chat has a small display error after updating

    [22:07:46][2. Handel] |Hplayer:[Lad]ýdeath:11:CHANNEL:2[Ladýdeath]: biete [Verzauberkunst] gegen mats und kleines tg /w me
    [22:07:46][2. Handel] |Hplayer:[Lad]ýdeath:12:CHANNEL:2[Ladýdeath]: und extra noch [Juwelenschleifen] auch gegen mats und kleines tg

    the HPLAYER :12:CHANNEL:2 stuff shouldnt be visible, its the name that appears twice and the first part of her name in [] is highlighted, looks really ugly
