its just as easy in 14 just remember to ctrl+r so you dont need to retype their name
The complaint is you have to hit the space bar first.
Also, is there no way to expand the chat log? If not, that sucks balls.
You can manually stretch it out, but meh.
Yeah, I think the chat limit is much smaller than in XI. And hitting the space bar is kinda annoying, but I can deal with it. But my personal gripe, is I got into the habit of hitting Alt R, which worked same as CTRL R. So I'm always 2nd guessing myself mid-stroke as I try to remind myself to hit spacebar, and then remember CTRL.
Also, I don't think CRTL R works unless you have sent a /tell to that person first. I tried to respond to a friend who sent me a tell when I first logged back in after a D/C, and I couldn't respond w/o picking his name out of my friend list (pain to type these full names, where's the "nickname" feature we were to have again?)
