IDE Talk usability feedback

1. When I am typing in IDE Talk window and a message arrives the windows is
closed on me and all my typing go straight into my java edit window. It
happens when IDE talk window is floating and not pinned
2. Status bar indicator that there are unread messages is needed
3. It would be usefull if we could highlight a block of text and send it
without having to cut and paste. If it is from a file, then link should be
appended as well
4. One thing I would like very much is an ability to send message to more
than one person. If contact lists were supported as well as multiple
recipience it would be great.

This is a bug, will hopefully be fixed in 6.0 release.

2. Status bar indicator that there are unread messages is needed


Until message is shown in the bottom toolwindow, the icon of the
toolwindow blinks. There are many indicators in the status line of IDEA
(especially when TeamCity plugin is installed), so I'm not sure it
worth adding another one.

These are good points. Could you please file Jira requests?

With kind regards,
