    Is there any way to get rid of the dedicated space for timestamp/nicknames to display?

    I would rather have this mIRC style.  I can't drag it all the way to the left, it stops four spaces from the edge.  I can't seem to find any setting to disable it.

      It's called "show separator"

    sweet, thanks i wondering about that also, sorry for asking in here but i did not see the need to open a new topic when it is kind of this one, but when you remove the line how can i add something in front and behind the nicks? like <nickhere> or |nickhere|

    tia

     
  • Yes, look at the Event Texts in Preference Lists.  Look at the Channel Message and the Your Message Strings, and remove the %H around the < > characters.  This will cause the < > characters to be revealed when a message is formatted in the channel.  To do |nickhere| for example, just replace < > with | |.  Event texts are where you can really customize how xchat looks.
