HI,
How do I activate the capability to just click on someone's name in a room, and it loads that name in the edit box.. so the person's name is at the start of a message to them in said room. This way if you are talking in a busy room, the person would see their name and know you are replying to them.
I have been having to type the person's name in manually, and we all know how creatively odd some of the nicks are.. so it is a challenge to type them accurately all the time. I am pretty sure that the capability exists.

There's the inbuilt nick-completion that you can use without a mouse, just type the first few letters of a nick, and keep pressing TAB until the right one appears.

Failing that, using this line in Options/Mouse under 'Nick List':

Code:
editbox -fa $$1 $+ : $editbox($active)

This will remove the ability of double-clicking a nick to bring up a query window, but will put the nick followed by a colon at the start of the editbox, even if you've already typed something.
