First off, great addon, been using it for a while.

I was curious, would it be possible to change the justification (right, left, or center) of the chat tabs themselves?

What I'd ultimately like to achieve is have a pulled out chat frame with the tab on the far right of the frame. I honestly haven't any idea if that can be done, or if it would be a royal pain.

Anyway, thanks for making this addon, terrific job!
Hmm, doable, but only be entirely rewriting WoW's code for positioning of chat tabs, which would be a huge pain

I'll get to adding some options to change just how much of the chat tab to hide.

This addon is fresh and it can have much more features to make our eyes be happy =)
For example If you will combine few addons together with nCT you ll make something really cool looking.
I just can advice you some ideas to make it better and hope to see them in your addon =)

ideas -
1) Enlarge X Y move ability .
2) Make settings for each chat tab player have.
3) Moving buttons like scroll down and menu ( probably re skin them or text variant )
4) Change Background lighting color when pressing or mouse over tab .

I hope to see something of this ideas in your addon =)

Hmm, after examining the possibilities and methods of pulling it off, I think those ideas are a little out of nibChatTabs scope at this point. The addon is really just made to skin them. Though you can currently rename tabs by right-clicking them

Can you make this addon similar to SL Data text.
For example enlarge X Y position moveablity.
Add tabs rename like in nibMicroMenu - To rename tabs for example from General to G or Gen...
And this wll be awesome dude!!!

Also got question:
As i remember in previous versions of your UI, you had some thing like this -

There was a *Pros* when you clik it, it changes to *minus* and opens a combat log window.

Will you make some thing like this ?

Cheers m8
Good ideas, will look into them

New Hide Tabs option

Alright, check out the new Hide Tabs option under the Opacity tab. Should do what you need.
