Exercise Your Options

Did you know that you can use cut, copy, and paste in game? Kravis tells us how! Press "O" for the Options window, press Keymap, click the All tab, and find the Chat Edit Cut, Chat Edit Copy and Chat Edit Paste commands and assign them a key. You can now paste in text from out of game into spatial chat and macros.

Aerous Esea also recommends expanding your toolbar to a second row. In the Options window, click the Interface button. Check the box that reads "Expand Toolbar to a Second Row". Digital_Terror, who also recommends this, notes that the actions in the second row can be activated by pressing Shift+#.

For a starting player, missed communications can be a killer. To make certain you don't ever miss one, Zion Halcyon recommends setting your chat options. In your chat box, where the named tabs are listed (usually Chat, Combat, etc.), right click on Chat and click Modify Tab.

From here, make sure you move tells (instant messages), guild chat, and group chat over to the main spatial window. This will allow you to see if someone in your group is trying to talk in guild chat, and also adds guild chat if you are in a guild. Now go to group chat (or guild chat if in a guild), and again, right click the name and modify. This time, leave the spatial messages out, but add in group chat, guild chat, etc.
