Once again: Restore the basic functionality of Skype 7 you robbed from us at gun point!!
In particular: Restore complete customisation of fonts size, font family & weight in chats. Make it possible to turn off emojis as well as the automatic replacement of asteriks etc with text formatting. I want to decide once more how my messages are displayed. If I type (=8 I want it to display exactly like that because I mean exactly that: In parenthesis "something equals 8". Sometimes I chat about maths. And if I type asterisks I want to display exactly like that because I mean exactly that: C++ style Pointers. Sometimes I chat about programming.
I still cannot fathom how a company that makes its profits with products for professionals has such a hard time understanding that not everyone wants another WhatsApp-type app, but some of us really want and need Skype 7.
Keyboards shortcuts please! (open skype, answer and etc...)

Agree with comments below! Why on earth would you not include the options to end call, mute, answer call etc with keyboard shortcuts? It's making users want to ditch the new Skype when you release an updated version with so many features missing that we all used a lot :(
**** not having this in this new version we are all being forced to migrate to, is soooo annoying
According to the Chat agent, there is no mute key. That you could release a call product without a mute shortcut key is utterly beyond comprehension.
If you do add it back, it should work like the old Skype--anywhere, like when I'm typing notes in Word, not just if the Skype window has the focus.
Other shortcut keys, like end conversation, would be good too.
And make them customizable!
Why did you take out this feature???????????????
