the same problem is happening to me on a Mac version of Skype. I've done a clean UNinstall of every file several times, I've sequentially rolled all the way back to 2.8, all to no avail. Mac OS doesn't have a registry, so I'm at a loss as to what other files or system info could be causing this. On a PC, I've read it's a corrupt chat history file. That has been deleted many times. Still no fix.
Anyone with any ideas on how to fix it on a Mac? (other than the suggestion to go back to a decent computer and get a PC again)
Try restarting your computer.
You can also do this:
- Go to "Tools" on the top left.
- Click on "Options".
- In "Options", click on "IM & SMS".
- Click on "IM Appearance".
- Click to change the font.
I have not tested it, but it may work.
Thanks for the suggestions. Restarts don't fix the issue, either in general, or between un- and re-installations.
I tried changing the font - no effect. I tried changing the chat style but only have 1 to choose from. My suspicion is that that wouldn't fix it either.
I did find out that if I quit Skype and restart, then open the previous chat, all the text appears (history is on). But nothing new will appear until I quit Skype and restart again. So I know the inputs are being recorded from both parties.
Any other suggestions are most welcome.
Help is appreciated.
Anyone ever find a solution for this? Im a Mac, and I can't for the life of me figure this out?
Help! To be clear, when I type an IM, I can see it while I am typing. When i send it disappears. And I cant see it. HELP!
