Several windows? Several groups of rooms?
« on: September 02, 2006, 07:05:53 PM »
How do I open several windows and sort the rooms to each window. I need 4 windows with 2 to 5 rooms per windows so I can see the chat in 4 rooms at once. Is this possible?

Sorry, but I am not really sure what you mean.
Can you explain it differently?

Thanks for the quick reply.
In Trillion 3.1 they are call containers. I cannot remember what it's call in GAIM. You will have several windows open so that you can see several chats as they are being replied to, instead of all the rooms being stacked on top of each other and having to go tab to tab to see each room. It may also be known as groups.
Example:
Rooms #Red; #Blue; #Green would be in windows 1
Rooms #Cat; #Dog; #Mouse would be in Window 2
Both windows would be sized to be viewable at the same time. Each room within the windows would be select by clicking on the tab that represented them, like it currently is. The only difference would be the rooms would autojoin in there own designated window instead of all the rooms showing in the same window.

Ok, I understand.
Sorry, this is not possible in IceChat.

Than you for the reply. I worked it out. Exactly matching the feature you are right I do not see it working, but I found a work around. I went to Windows and selected " Tile Horizontally". I sized and stacked the the rooms in six groups. Actually this is much cleaner than Trillian or GAIM.
This is exactly what I wanted. I still use Trilliam Basic for the IM but I believe I will keep Ice for all my IRC needs. Nice product. I am a mod and it allows me more controll than the other programs. Keep up the good work.

One more question. When I exit IceChat, will IceChat remember the Tiles size and positions? Before trying Ice I had Trillian up for 63 days, so it may be a while before I find out on my own.

In Options, I believe its under Display Settings or View Settings (Depends on IceChat Version) there will be a setting to Save Window Positions on Exit.
And if Tiling the windows works for you, excellent.

Yep , it works great. The setting you referred to is Options> Programs Settings> Save Windows Szes/Positions on Exit <check box>.
I put this up in case someone else had a similar question. I have IceChat 5.
