I did my first UI customization a few weeks ago. (No point in sending in pictures as it's not that original.).Anyways, I went with the solid bar across the bottom style and found that my overal bar height was driven by how "short" I could make the chat window. Even using Prat, I wasn't able to shorten the chat window as much as I had liked, so the UI ended up taking up a good chunk at the bottom of the screen.I solved this by using MaxCameraDistance (i think that was the name) to be able to zoom out a bit more.My question is, though, is there a better tool that would allow me to shorten the chat window more?thanks

Make sure you have the Prat High CPU usage toggled on in your interface options. You should be able to shrink it so that like only 4-5 lines of text will show on the chat box.

You may have to point me in the right direction. I do have the high CPU prat module loaded, but i'm not seeing any place that looks like what you're talking about in the interface. Thanks

I'll try my best to point it out. In the prat Display settings, for buttons, you want to uncheck the Show Social button, menu button, and minimize buttons.In the frames tab, you can set maximum and minimum height and width. Set the minimum to the lowest level.Voila, you can resize it to whatever fits your UI the best.

That did it. Thanks!I had all of these settings set to the way you recommended. When I unlocked the chat windows I was able to lower it's height. I swear I tried before and it didn't work. :)Anyways thanks again, now I just need to lower the hieght on all of my panels and I'm all set.
