Lost Buddy List Window

Post by sic »

I"m not sure what happned but I cant find the Buddy List, like I moved it offscreen and cant get it back.

I tried reinstalleing Adium but the settings must be saved somewhere else.

Any help? either with how to fix the problem or where the saved settings are located so I can delete them?

I have been having this sort of issue as well. I have it so that my buddy list hides on the left screen edge but sometime it doesn't reappear.

If the buddy window is off the edge of the screen, one way to get it to reappear is to resize your display setting to a smaller size (like 800x600) momentarily. This should bring it back into the visible area.

If the reason for the disappearance is something else, this may or may not help.

You can also view the discussion in this post about how Adium locates the buddy list:

Yeah, Adium is a nice app and all, but I often lose my buddy list.

Restarting Adium doesn't help.

Hitting Apple + / doesn't help either.

This is really annoying -- how hard is it to prevent a buddy list from disappearing?

I'm sorry to hear you all are having problems but I have been running Adium for over year and the only time my buddy list has disappeared is when I change monitor size.

I'm sure there is reason for your experiences but I don't think we can blame it all on Adium.
