    Hi All,

    I'm running Messages split screen with Mail (not that it should matter) and have Messages set up to take as little room as possible. While in this view, only one message thread is visible, and I don't see any UI element to go back to the list of conversations so I can view a different conversation.

    Am I just dumb and missing something or is this a bug? I know I can resize the split view so that Messages takes up half the screen, then the conversations list comes back, but this defeats the purpose of having the movable slider, in my opinion.

    Any thoughts?

    Hover your mouse cursor near the split screen divider slightly offset to the Messages app... The list will slide out by itself...

    Great thank you, if there's an indicator for that functionality I missed it.

    I guess I could have used the shortcut keys for next/previous conversation (CTRL+TAB / CTRL+SHIFT+TAB) instead. The slide-out takes a moment to trigger.
