Re: Not bad, just a bit rough

That's why the hate.

So many essential features that are missing and have been for years, with no indication as to whether they'll ever happen.

It's single fecking window which makes it literally impossible to refer to another conversation or "attachment" within Teams - flipping back and forth loses your place and often unloads the whole discussion from cache too.

Worse, downloading files drops them into Downloads and vanishes. There is no UI whatsoever that will open the downloaded file, or even select the dratted thing.

They've only just now made it possible to shut a "conversation" up without leaving it, and you still cannot silence alerts from an entire Team - you have to silence every conversation individually.

And yes, many of these serious issues are 100% caused by the batshit crazy idea to use Electron. Which Slack also did, and I hated them for that too.
