Edit or Quote Skype messages

I used to be able to Quote and Edit messgaes I sent/received in skype on my Mac. It no longer gives me the little drop down arrow button for that action. I've looked all through preferences and tried re-downloading skype. Am I missing something? Anyone know how I can get that back??

Hi :happy:

 

The down arrow disappeared with the revamping of the chat interace.

However, the content is still accessible when you right click on any message, as such:

After a while, it is not possible to edit messages. However, if you just sent one, you should definitely be able to edit it :happy:
