Well. It sounds as though that is just what I wanted, and I thank you for the reply.
However, I must be even more clueless than I thought, since I cannot get it to do anything, and further I cannot seem to get the search function to find the original posting where perhaps some comments or discussion might have set me straight...
I was already using a tiny UI mod for the player window to add experience percentages. So I do know about putting new files in a separate subdirectory under uifiles. That works fine for my replacement EQUI_PlayerWindow.xml.
I put the new EQUI_ChatWindow.xml in the same place, and reloaded the UI.
Nothing changed. I set the chat window labeled "Main Chat" to "always chat here". I tried closing and re-starting several of the other chat windows. They still look as they always have, with titles and input boxes. I reloaded UI a few times, and then tried camping out and restarting from scratch. Nothing.
I am sure it must be something silly that I am doing wrong, but I cannot see it. Any suggestions?
edit P.S. : I notice you are on Povar. So am I. Hi
