    Thank you for the feedback. We’re still working on enabling this capability to allow you to delete all the conversations with one click. In the meantime you can delete your conversations one by one. Right click on the conversation in the recent chats list, and select the option to “Delete Conversation”.

    Some of the most consistent feedback we’ve received from you, our most dedicated users, has to do with sounds and how you are notified about the goings on in Skype 8. We are deeply interested in meeting your needs, and we need your help prioritizing the work we will dive into and the order in which we will accomplish it.

    Please be honest with how badly you need these options. We understand that all of these things are important. By rating something lower than another item, you won’t remove it from our To Do list, but rather we’ll get your MUST DOs done first.

    In the survey for the scale options please rank how important each item is for you. With 1 being not very important to you and 5 being very important.

    Thank you
    Petr

    Hi everyone, thanks so much for this request. We have thought this through and due to other high priority engineering that the product needs we decided to prioritize other user-requested items for now. Please keep continue supporting this Idea and we will review it again later. I’ll let you know if anything changes.

    Thanks, Paul - good to hear it's in the pipeline. Any idea of ETA?

    Why do you need more information? Just make it work like it did in Skype 7. All the design work has already been done.

    Once again, an essential feature of Skype 7 has been removed by the "upgrade" to Skype 8.

    I use Skype in a work context; I want to be able to allow people to reach me, but on my terms. The existing feature did that quite nicely with minimal effort and fuss.

    What is probably happening is that the rendering of the chat is being handled by HTML5, so highlighting text within this control is handled by the HTML layout engine. You therefore get the same content as you would if you were cutting and pasting from a web page.

    For this to work well, this must be maximally compact, and should ideally have separate font settings from a regular chat window.

    In Skype 7, I just tagged all the contacts like this "Work: John Smith", "Personal: Peter Jones", etc. In Skype 8, when chatting with someone, just the first name is displayed, and they are therefore are always just called "Work:" or "Personal:"

    An option to group contacts would remove this problem

    Translation:

    The management group is too poor. There can only be one favorite. Many different types of friends cannot be grouped.
