I'm not sure that's right, to be honest. :?

[edit] Nah, it probably is right. :)

It's been mentioned elsewhere, but I thought I might as well put it in the "restore features" thread. ;3 Bring back plaintext logs, please!

away window.. show time away

Post by ob1 »

First off.. you guys are awesome. Thanks for making such a versatile and wonderful app that everyone can customize to their own liking. A+ for you.

Am I missing a pref that shows the time I've been away since. I remember it was like: "Away since 5:02 (30 minutes)" That was awesome.. cuz I used it to see how long I slept, showered, all kinds of things. :)

Mute while Away...

Post by ferguson »

What I miss the most from .77 is the mute while away option... I don't know if it's gone, or if I just can't find it. I always have adium on, but often I'm away. And it's slightly annoying to be watching a movie, and hear a duck quack. Is there a way to mute while away in .8 short of turning off all the alert sounds? And if it's gone, can you add it back? I loved it.

I used the away message window for this same purpose as well. It helped me to become more organized, lol :)
I'm... kinda tired... I think I'll go home now.

Yes, bring back the Away palette! If you use a borderless window for your contacts, there's currently no way to tell if you're away. That's highly annoying.

You realize there are TWO customs, right? :) One below available and one below away?
Ah-Ha! back to feeling stupid about myself... I'll get used to that eventually... but now that I look at it, it makes sense... Nicely Done.

Status->Old State
Status->Custom
type type
press OK

is all you need to do.
That is not the behaviour it exibits. Following your directions I get a blank custom window with the state set to "available". For "Status->Old State" I selected an old state, with my status as away.

Sounds like you're selecting the wrong "custom..." - choose the one with the away icon next to it.

The default dock icon looks exactly the same whether I am available or away - and it's missing that nice little sign that used to appear on it when I was away or idle.

One thing I miss from .77 is the reformat incoming messages feature in the advanced section of the preferences. Its new incarnation just doesn't cut it: if the person-I'm-talking-to's font is bolded it won't de-bold it. Really annoying. Well, kind of annoying.

If i had a few of my accounts online, i could previously use the "Connect All" option to bring the rest online. Now I have to set ALL accounts to offline, then bring them all back online again.
Not quite. Use the statuses in the Status menu (the status items at the top, don't root through your account submenus). These will change the available/away/offline for all online accounts just as you'd expect.
I'm afraid not.. If 2 of my 8 accounts are offline, changing my master status to ANY of the "available" or "away" statuses changes this only for the online accounts. the offline ones remain offline :(

Another vote for the time. I used it to see how long I've been sleeping or at class and such. Very useless, but... yeah, just really useless but neat.
