[kopete] away messages

i really enjoy kopete, but i hate the away status box and other away message settings. is there a way to make the away status box a text box instead of single text line, so that my away messages can have line breaks (i.e. carraige returns). also, is there a way to make it so when i highlight my buddies names the html code in their away messages doesn't show up (for example, if a word is italics it will be shown in the pop up as <i>word</i>) but just to show that actual away message (like in gaim). thanks alot.

p.s. i am using kopete for aim. thanks again.

RE: [kopete] away messages

GUI wise, this is not possible. What you could do is to make a script with something like this. You can type anything you want between the quotes.

Source code

bram@s040391 ~/KDE $ dcop kopete KopeteIface setAway "Test
> Test"
bram@s040391 ~/KDE $

It wouldn't hurt to submit a wish report at (if there's not already an existing wish for this).
