    Hello all...

    Recently upgraded to Leopard, and since there is no Chax support in this version (yet), I have run across two minor annoyances that nonetheless irk the living heck out of me:

    #1. Everytime I receive an IM for the first time, instead of getting the full window I am getting a small "preview" window, in which I have the option to Accept or Deny the chat. I've scoured through the Preferences pane, and have found no option to turn this off...is there a way to do this, or are we going to have to wait until Apple figures out they left the option out?

    #2. In tabbed chats, is there any keystroke combination that allows you to switch between tabs without doing it manually with the mouse? In Chax we could Command-1, Command-2, etc to move in between chats. Doing this now brings up different windows, not tabs. Any ideas?

    In general, I like the improvements to iChat with this version...it's about time we had the ability to create groups and be invisible...but it sure would be nice if I could rid myself of those two annoyances above.

    Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

    honestly the preview window never really annoyed me, but I think you can turn it off..

    A couple of things that annoy me are the setting of away messages.. I'd like to be able to have blank lines in it.. and the whole get info aspect sucks. I used adium for a while, and if they could enable video and screen sharing i'd switch back in a flash..

    I guess not, another thing I do not like about ichat right now is that when working in a space, when a window pops up I am automatically drawn to my "iChat space" kind of annoying for right now, especially if I am posting or reading. It's like instant head-ache.
