Default BBm on OS6

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys, I have been looking around for a solution to this but wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same. basically on BBm when you are in a conversation and you scroll up to see the previous chat history, it will she when that message is sent. but how do you tell what message you are on in that case as I cannot see a cursor.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated, Thanks in advance.

I noticed this too, Very annoying if you wanted to copy and paste etc..

When you scroll through the messages and they are highlighted, press the Alt key, (or Shift Key, forgotten which one). The cursor will appear!

I have just rolled back to OS5 (979), I just could not get on with the slide bar and all the Header options in OS6! Drove me nuts.

the shift brings you to a selection but only shows on that text bubble, it doesn't show it constantly while scrolling up.

Well for sure, I mean small quarks but still understandable, I expect to find more just more less wondering if others are experiencing this, or figured out a fix. but the SHIFT key work around does the trick for now.

The funny thing is, I have reverted back to OS5 (979), but I still have an urge to re-install OS6, I really do enjoy the freshness of the UI.

The Side-Bar was frustrating for me. Too many Sub-Menu's (media, favourites,All,etc). I am still trying to find out if you can define how many you want or just cut the Side Bar out all together?

Sod it ! Lets give it another go.......

I love the 6.0 on it small things I can live with till an official release it made, I also figure that the BBm issue will be no issue with a theme or something of that manor.

As with everything, one has to adapt. I'm back on OS6 now. With a little organising and tweaking I am really starting to enjoy this OS. I just have to stop myself from 'comparing' it to OS5. I have just discovered the 'Social Feeds' app, OMG! What a great additon if you like your Twitter, BBM etc. Does anybody know if it is possible to have Facebook linked to the Social Feed app? As yet I don't have an option for Facebook.
