Hi - I'm making a new layout and want to create several chat windows to have onscreen at once. Is there a chat mod that will save the position of the new windows so that I can load it on each of my alts or do I need to set them up by hand for each one?
I've tried Prat and Phanx chat. Even using Prat's profiles, it doesn't save the new windows I've created.
Chat frame existence, position, and channel settings are saved by the game client. I don't know of any addons that store that information, and it's not something I'd probably ever add to PhanxChat, simply because the game already does just fine saving it. If you want to copy your chat frame settings from one character to another, just copy the file:
