Overlapping text input/output Chat Window
The idea is that you can size one chat window really small, and use it as "Always Chat Here", and then the rest of your windows don't have to have input boxes. Also, use the popup menu scrollbar option to remove the scrollbar from the input window.

The downside is you cannot click to edit text in the text input chat box (because the output box is over it).

Tip: /clear will clear the text input window after making changes to it, and shift left/right can navigate through text in the input chat window for editing.

Didn't realise what you meant by this until I'd had a day thinking about my chat boxes and how to get rid of the wasted chat bar. Now I realise what you've done this is 100% going on my UI.

Like you say, this lets you create a dedicated box for typing, with no text filtering into it. Very clever way of getting round the limitations of the chat windows!

To use this, what you need to do is:

1. Create your chat windows as normal (there's now no input area visible on any of them)
2. Create another chat window, but make it tiny.
3. Configure that chat window so no content filters into it.
4. Set "Always chat here" on that new tiny window.

And voila! You've now got a separate text input box which you can place anywhere you like, and no text input areas visible on any other chat window.

Genius, sheer genius!!
