Re: Two announcements: https works on my website, and hotkey change in Skype 8

Michele Barbi
 

Thanks Doug for the information, I just tested the hotkeys in italian Skype 8.32 and effectively the change is in effect here as well, so I reported on my italian Skype list.
Bye!

Two announcements: https works on my website, and hotkey change in Skype 8

Doug Lee
 

Someone on this list recently had trouble finding scripts/add-ons on my website because of using https instead of http. https has become quite common nowadays, and sometimes preferred, for security reasons.

So I finally took the opportunity to get a certificate set up for my website. From now on, https://www.dlee.org should work as well as http://www.dlee.org. This applies to all URLs for scripts and projects I host.

Also while I'm making announcements: I observed recently that the Ctrl+F shortcut in Skype 8 for searching for contacts now searches conversations for text. The new keystroke for searching for contacts is Ctrl+Shift+S,
according to my testing. I don't know if or where this may be officially documented at this time.

Yep. I don't see a change in the help list, but yeah. Not even the /help command I was reading about works. And the the other commands are failing too.

Ok, this gets odder and odder. I looked for the command list which I found here and it lists the remotelogout command but when I tpe it into my version of skype 8 it does not work at all. I have tosay my android device is turned off so that should not make any difference in theory, but thought I'd throw that out there.

Take care

Ironically, I'd love to have that behavior back, as wel as getting notifications for every message that comes in, not just the first new message in a conversation.

I really like Skype 8, and have been using it for months exclusively; but one problem I do have with it is that incoming call sounds still come through when I have set myself to Do Not Disturb. Letting you know this in case it

through one sound device, but not the same one as conversations play?
I do appreciate that this is lightyears better than Skype 8 was when it
came out, based on things I've seen. I hope it continues to get better!
Thanks,
Nick

Re: Skype 8 ringing device

Doug Lee
 

Early Skype 8 versions rang through the default device even if you changed the speaker device to something else. I have not retested that in quite some time.

I really like Skype 8, and have been using it for months exclusively; but one problem I do have with it is that incoming call sounds still come through when I have set myself to Do Not Disturb. Letting you know this in case it
affects your broadcasting plans at all.

Hello all.
I'm sending this here because I suspect some of you have contact with
Microsoft. I upgraded to Skype 8, and I honestly find it not bad at all
accessibility-wise, far from the horror show it was depicted as. I can
even use it with speed, which isn't always easy to do in this day and
age. I'm even going to find out how it does on air in a few hours...And
here's the rub.
Is there any way to have Skype 7 behavior, wherein Skype will ring
through one sound device, but not the same one as conversations play?
