I suggest you ...

add an out-of-character option in the chat window

It would be nice to have an out-of-character option in the chat window - perhaps a toggle button - that would put the text in italics with your user name at the front, rather than your character name.

        @Earl - what it solves is being able to talk to party members as your character e.g. "I think they're bluffing" or "Help! I'm surrounded!" or to other players as yourself e.g. "go for hob #2" or "nice graphics on the tree."

        The OP didn't suggest two chat windows, but rather "a toggle button - that would put the text in italics with your user name at the front, rather than your character name." This takes no extra screen space and is not confusing (it works well in other game platforms like Fantasy Grounds).

        Rather than a toggle, I'd suggest 2 buttons, e.g. "send" and "OOC".

        I've been thinking on this, and I don't know what it solves...? Are you asking for a second chat window? Toggling back and forth between two different chat windows? Either way seems to cost more in either confusion or screen real-estate than you'd gain.

        Or am I missing something?
