Really weird (and admittedly dumb) newbie issue about chatting

3 posts in this topic

Posted

I'm having trouble with chatting and even getting the chat box in the bottom left corner to show up.
Sometimes I see the box, sometimes I don't and can't figure out why it keeps disappearing or how to get it to stay on screen.

And if I press enter to chat then change my mind about saying anything I can't figure out how to close the message and get back to the game.
I'll be rapidly pressing escape but that doesn't seem to do it...and I can't do anything else in game except for typing a message while this is happening.
I end up just minimizing the entire game and reopening it and that seems to let me move again.

So how do I keep the chat box on screen and how do I properly cancel chatting a message since pressing escape doesn't seem to work?

I think basically what you have to do to get rid of the chat box when you wanna do something else is to backspace the message out then press 'Enter' again. 

Keeping the chatbox on the screen, that seems to be a UI issue that is quite common if you exit out of the game unexpectedly (force shut down PC or power cut, etc.). Sometimes your UI is reset and hides the chatbox. Go into the UI and if the chatbox is hidden, unhide it. Otherwise I'm not sure of this issue.

There seems to be no way to simply cancel a message other than deleting it and hitting enter again as Yeonnie said.

As for the chat disappearing,you should check the transparency settings (click the cogwheel next to your chat tab) just in case it's this or check if you have "simplify UI" in your settings > game. Otherwise I suppose it is an actual bug :/
