    Shabazza, CopyChat is accessible in the chat tab, the icon is gone not sure when it as removed, but its no longer in the code, just in the chat tab menu. UPDATE: I re-added the icon

    redrenius,angrysteel: when a auto whisper window is made, i got and copy that whisper form whenevereditbox is lives in. Blizz code is supposed todo it, but doesnt all the time. Im fixing it now, so it shouldnt double copy messages. and not loose the initial.

    Also working on fixing the mouse not working for edits int he editbox.

    the copychat function doesn't work. The icon on the bottom right of the chat frame isn't there anymore.

    regards, Sha

    Confirmed, angrysteel.

    Another issue is that if you have whispers enabled for more than one chat frame - I have them enabled for the frame I have raids in so I can easily see if I get a new whisper, then a separate whisper frame - the whisper shows up twice in the new conversation window. There also seems to be an issue with timestamps.

    This is me whispering myself 'hi' once (whispering shown in 3 chat frames currently due to settings not saving properly, also note the missing time stamp):

    [13:06:00][W:From] [Me]: hi

    [13:06:00][W:From] [Me]: hi

    [13:06:00][W:From] [Me]: hi

    [W:To] [Me]: hi

    Edit: Ok ignore the timestamp bit, was just some of the chat frames had it disabled in chatter for some reason, seems to show up after I enabled it, still a bit dodgy that it shows up for the first message though.

    With the Automatic Whisper Windows module chatter makes a new window for all the whispers you get, but for some reason it leaves out the initial whisper (the one that started the conversation) from the new windows, is this a known issue? Destroys the main purpose of the function for me - being able to check who whispered me while I was afk/during combat, and what they said.


    im using blizz bultin function to move those conversations, i think its a bug in blizz since you get the same issue when you hit move to whipser window.


    redrenius, should be fixed int eh alpha build now.

    Using: A: v1.2.4-2-ga69cce2 for 3.3.5 on 01 Jul 2010

    Not sure if this was the issue Redrenius was having or not, it seems like the exact opposite. With Automatic Whisper Windows module enabled, i do not see the initial whisper sent to me in the general tab. The initial whisper will only show up in the actual whisper window. All other whispers from the same person will show up in the general chat tab as well as the whisper tab (working as intended im assuming). Its just the very first whisper from each new person sending a tell, will not be displayed in the general tab.

    This is using the older chat style, not the new IM chat settings (not sure if that makes a difference).

    My mistake Kagaro, it was a bug with having the blizzard option of mousewheel scrolling checked.

    Once I unchecked the Blizzard option, it works as intended now.

    Hi, i have only a problem, when i press Enter and write something, if I want to correct the previous text that I wrote, I have to go back with the arrow key, I can not select with the mouse pointer.

    One thing I am missing since all these updates is the ability to hold "Shift" and mousewheel scroll would automatically bring you to the bottom of your chat, or to the top.

    This had to be chatter enabling that feature, because I used it all the time in 3.3.3 and it worked perfectly, now it just feels awkward not being able to shift and mousewheel down to get to the bottom of chat windows.
