PostSubject: Miranda IM Xizor Chat Bubbles Tutorial January 27th 2008, 9:58 pm

Many people have been asking me how to install the xizor chat bubbles in Miranda IM so I decided I'd make this tutorial happy.
Xizor chat bubbles:

Download - Mediafire Mirror

Download - Rapidshare Mirror

1. Make sure you have the IE View Plugin. If you do not download it Here and then put it into your Miranda IM/plugins directory

2. Start up Miranda IM

3. Go to options and then click plugins on the left, check ieview.dll and tabSRMM.dll, Press OK

4. Restart Miranda

5. Go to options and you should see the structure has changed. Under Message sessions on the left click Message window then the Message Log tab. Now check Check Activate support for external log.

6. Click IEView pluing on the left, on top of message window. click message log tab

7. Check the checkbox to the left of templates. Now click the ... button on the right. Navigate to where you extracted the chat bubbles.. there should be an ichat.ivt file, select it click ok>ok and you're done! Restart Miranda First

There are folders, navigate in there then select the itv file. you do it in the ieview section, you know templates like where you usually pick the itv files, but just choose one thats in the folders

I finally figured it out!!

Since there's only one .ivt file, open it with wordpad or notepad, and near the top you'll see:

receive/XXXX.css
send/XXXX.css

You'll notice that the words in the XXX's correspond to the folders in the Send and Receive folders

All you have to do is type in the color that you want!! But make sure its the same name as the ones in the folder, and be sure to keep the .css at the end of each

Hello! I love these chat bubbles, but I have a question - I've noticed that there's no word wrap, ie. when I type a word at the end of a line, it doesn't shift the whole word down to the next line automatically. It cuts it off and displays the next half of the word on the next line, so that instead of, say, this:

I am a long
line of text

I will get this:

I am a long li
ne of text

It really bugs me... is there any way to fix it? Thank you!

Thanks for the tip - I went to search the Miranda forums, and found the answer! Thought I'd share it here for anyone else having the same problem with these chat bubbles not word-wrapping:

You need to open main.css in the xizor iChat folder, and change this line

word-break: break-all;

to

word-break: break-word;

and that's all there is to it. The line occurs twice in the CSS file, so change both instances of it. And all should work fine!
