Chat window size

I cant get the IM window size to be narrow. I know how to resize it but the limitations are lame. I have written skype to try to get them to change it but so far no change that I am aware of. I just updated to version 6.3 and was very disappointed that they didnt add that feature.(to be able to make the IM window very narrow)

 

I keep version 2.8.0.866 on my computer as well as the new one just for chatting so I can make the IM window very narrow and to the side of any other open documents or windows. But it is a hassle switching back and forth.

 

The old version will let you make the IM window about 1.5" - 2" wide, much narrower than the new one. I have attached some picts for comparison

Re: Chat window size

Hey,

maybe an alternative for you could be to minimize the main window, then select "Contacts monitor" from Window menu. Then you get a narrow window with all the contacts and the individual conversations can be dragged to be smaller than the main window.

Hope this helps a bit :happy:

 

Cheers,

R.

Re: Chat window size

You should have it, i'm on a mac as well.

So just open the "Contacts monitor" from this menu:
