PostSubject: how to make that chatbox submit   May 21st 2016, 5:16 pm

alright this is gonna get a bit more complicated, guildies - i hope you're ready.

this is all about your chat box, making different chat tabs, and positioning it all where you want.

i highly recommend after reading this you make a separate tab or box for guild, party, and whisper chat.



first we're going to create multiple chat tabs
________________1. bring your mouse to your chatbox and click on the "+" symbol to create more tabs
________________2. i would recommend at least two, i have four myself.
Spoiler:
 

next we're going to edit those tabs so they show fewer types of chat.
________________1. hover over your chat box until you see a gear.
________________2. click on it to see the different filtering options.
________________3. check which ones you wish to appear and make sure to uncheck what you don't want to see.
___________________________ for example, in the picture below you'll see my setting for my "chat 1 box"
________________4. you'll have to click on each tab's gear icon to change their filtering options.
Spoiler:
 

now i'll show you how to make separate chat boxes, if you'd prefer not clicking through tabs.
________________1. click on the symbol of overlapping squares to separate a tab from your main chat
Spoiler:
 

________________2. once separated, it will appear in the middle of your screen
________________3. to move this, you'll have to press "esc" and go to "edit ui"
________________4. once you've clicked "edit ui", you'll see a large gray box where your new chat is
________________5. click and hold to drag it where you want it
________________6. press save when finished
________________7. and ta da you now have two chat boxes.
