    Hey. I just noticed that "cursor movement without ALT key" is not working. I disabled "Use Alt Key for cursor movement" option but still can't navigate to the old chat entries without ALT key.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    I don't know if I am doing something wrong, lol it's likely operator error, but I have checked the button to enable edit box history but when I try to access previously typed commands they are not there.Any help would be appreciated on this matter. It used to work but I had to delete and reinstall the addon and now it is not.

    Any chance of getting an option to have characters guild note next to a toon's name when it appears in a chat box of any kind?


    (G) Dyspathic(Aethra): Good morning

    Soandso(Boblawblaw) has logged in

    (1) Joeblow: Where is mankrik's wife?

    I've been a part of many guilds that use the note for alts, rank, real names, etc and it could be useful to people. It wouldn't require a saving any data; just yanking it from whoever is online at the moment.

    I appreciate the clarity and simplicity of your add on. Thanks.

    Would it be possible to get a way to remove the Server name after each name in chat..

    such as...

    Annamay-Mal'Ganis so it just says Annamay or even Annamay(*) when they are not from the server i am on. it takes up a lot of extra room and often makes simple chat messages that would only be one line become 2 lines.

    just an annoyance,.. would be great to have a toggle for it.

    Hi, anybody knows how to whisper to realid when there is a character with the same name?.

    For example, realid is "Nana#1234" and character name is "Nana". If I type "/w Nana <space>" it goes to the purple whisper window, instead of the cyan one.

    Is it possible to keep the player names option on so I can have class colors, but removing the servername from people on my own server (it's ok on people from other servers)?

    Would like to move chatbox to the top so I can have Chatter down in the corner, and see what I type.

    The feature to remember chat edit box text is not working. Nothing is saved.
