x Chat - How to ...

If you have used x Chat before, you will be familiar with this new version. The basic functions are the same. However, there are more features behind the screen. You can know more about new features by reading the 'Tips and Hints' in Help menu.

If you haven't used x Chat before, you will know how to use it in a minute. You will be amazing how easy it can be.

Step 1: Make a connection. Click on File - Connect. Enter IP address and click OK.

Step 2: Begin a session. If the connection is ok, you will hear a sound to indicate the connection is established. If not, you should double check the IP address AND the ports setting in File - Properties.

Step 3: Start chatting. Beware of this. It is not a word processor. You cannot underline a single word, edit the character in the previous line, or make a double spacing paragraph.

Step 4: Explore features.  If you feel it isn't fun for plain text chatting, you can bold / italic the whole text. You may increase or reduce the font size, change font and background colour. If you think your partner is sleeping while chatting with you, you can wake him/her up by clicking the alert ring button.
