A movable border between typing area and past messages
The divider should allow being moved and remember its position. Again, like in Skype 7.
Often I want a larger typing area than one line at the start (rather than waiting), and it's tedious resizing it with a bunch of Ctrl-Enters. Even then you're limited.
Thanks all for all the comments and votes around this topic. We are looking into options how to improve typing area, so it meets your needs. I’ll let you know if anything changes.

There's only one relevant option here - whether to implement resizing or not.
If it is not possible to implement it then stop p*ssing about and say so.
The goal of coding once for all platforms will only limit the possibilities of any software.
You have only yourselves to blame for all the bad feeling and poor press toward you since going after the portable/mobile market with Win8.
It's no longer possible to manage the height of message input panel. In previous version I preferred for example to divide app: 70% chat history, 30% input panel. Now input panel is fixed size and it's so small it contains only single line, so I need to scroll my message to read it.
Again, this is not only for the general user/s, but sight-impaired need this --- and the drag-to-size not only for the typing area, but also for the entire Skype window.
