reverse latest change to message highlighting and emoji bar
this new update is clunky, takes up way too much space on the screen, and forces every message you hover over to be highlighted which is a terrible feature for usability, this genuinely makes the app such an eyesore and I don't see why it needed to be changed in the first place, rightclicking on messages or clicking the 3 dots to the side has always worked and there is no reason to change it to work like this.
Agreed, highlighting each message in the chat along with the emoji reaction picker is very distracting. Please at leas give us an appearance option to turn these off.
I would miss the lines between messages as well but that is not as critical.18
I would love the ability to turn off the emoji preview. There's no need to see them overlapping the text as I mouse over the chat!7
An option to turn it off should be a given. When changing something as important and common as the message appearance, asking a user whether they want to change is important as many people simply will not like the new highlighting. In my opinion its distracting and annoying because I don't need to add reactions to every message I see. If I do, I right click the message and add it that way; a little box showing up on everything I mouse over is incredibly distracting.
It would be another thing if this update went on Canary and was evaluated there (I assume it was). Then I'd understand the lack of a toggle button but this is on the main branch! I've never asked to get this, and I want to get rid of it as soon as possible.10
Agree with all the comments above - a horrible change. The option to turn it off is a must here, in my opinion.0
Yeah. I can see how it might be useful for some people, but for me it's just a distracting and brightly colored nuisance that covers up parts of previous messages.0
