Re: Skype 8.51, split view and JAWS scripts

Aha! I had not looked in the right place since upgrading, largely because I was told the feature was not in my build lol. In any case, just one scant minute ago, I got Split View activated over here. Got a manager meeting and
one or two other concerns on my plate yet today; but barring problems and given energy, this is on top of my list to check out now.

My version, though, is 8.51.0.86. I only now realized that the below-mentioned 8.51.0.6 was probably not a different version but just a missing 8. :-)

Yep.

Just found it a few minutes ago, right in More Options; Enable Split View.

Curiosity kicked in, and there it was.

Doug, split view mode is available in the Skype update I downloaded just a
few hours ago. The version I'm running is 8.51.0.6. The update downloaded
as soon as I opened Skype this evening my time.

I will want to look at supporting split-view mode; but as it is in an
Insider version only, I currently don't have it to test.

To address a remark in a related email: "Compact List mode" is something
else and has been around for quite a while.

Hi Doug and list. After updating to Skype 8.51.0.6, and modifying the
ConfigNames.ini file according to your instructions (Iâm using JAWS
2019 June release), and enabling split view mode, hereâs what I found.

Â

The scripts work properly in the Skype main window, but when split view
mode is enabled, the scripts do not work in the separate chat window.Â
After disabling split view mode, I found that the scripts worked
properly in both the Skype main window and an active chat.

Iâm not expecting you to come up with a workaround, Iâm just reporting
in case anyone hasnât noticed yet.
