    Do not know if this is a bug or feature request.

    The tabs are not popping up lit when they are not focused upon. If I turn them off and go back to the default tabs I get the tab light up upon a tell or realid tell. . Not so when that module is turned on. . Any way to fix this as I love the idea of getting away from WiM, which is sort of broken right now anyway.

    Zidomo, I just added it back in along with a resizer module so you can resize like 3.3 i.e. any edge.

    to setup with 1 editbox, switch to classic mode.

    Also, alt names don't seem to be working for me.

    I'm having the same issue. It only works in the login message. There I still see the mains name.

    Is it somehow possible to limit the number of edit boxes to one? I have two chat windows, one for general stuff (left) and one for raid/party/guild chat (right). With the new chat system the edit box now opens on the window I have clicked the last, which is absolutely irritating.

    Making the window non interactive is no solution, since I then cannot click the names to whisper etc.

    Also, alt names don't seem to be working for me. Neither does it show guild notes nor manually added "Set Main" notes.

    Zidmo, ill think about adding it back in again on the upper left corner. depending on what side you dock the chat frame the resizer region is in the corner opposite. ive been more focused on bug fies right now over anything else. the previous add button to a build was a copy and paste so taking it out was only a second. Either case its accessible in the tab menu.

    Was it necessary to remove the chat copy button? BasicChatMods has a copy button for the chat frame that works without issues. Be nice to see one back in Chatter.
