Skype Preview v8.51.76.61 Window way too large

Salutations Skype Team,

The Skype Preview v8.51.76.61 just came in today and the window is even larger.. It now rolls partially off my screen.. It was bad enough having the window as large as it was and no split screen for separate messaging windows.. Please fix this, and also add split screen again..

Thank you and Namaste...

What do you mean the window is even larger?  The window is the size of whatever you resize it to, so you must mean something else.

The only change I noticed in this build--and the change I mention below only showed up today, 3 days after I installed it (making it yet another one of those things they either changed on the server side or pushed down independent of the version) is a slight redesign of the typing area, including the way the actions there are displayed (and when).

Incredibly, they didn't take this opportunity to make the division line between the typing area and history movable.

Another innovation is the Bookmark option.

 

 

 

To see the bookmarked messages, you have to open your Profile window by clicking on your avatar image and select the Bookmark option. All bookmarked messages will be shown in a separate chat window.

That's great, and something that I think was in the old version, though I never used it there (or stopped using it quickly). Not sure why.

It does appear that the current version does have a bug -- bookmarks cannot be removed.

The option to remove Bookmarks is available, but it is indeed not working. The Bookmark is removed from the original chat window, but is still shown in the Bookmarks window. This is a bug.

Another, slightly irritating "new feature" is that this Preview version always starts minimized to system tray. To get a visible window, you need to click on the system tray icon. This happens regardless of whether the option "Launch Skype in the background" is selected or not. I hope that this is not a new feature, but just a temporary bug.
