If you find that your Contacts (friends list and groups list) window has become detached (“torn off”) from your conversations (IM and group chat) window, then proceed as follows:

Method 1

  • At the top of the viewer click on Comm Menu → Friends (Ctrl+Shift+F)
  • Then click on ⇱ icon in the top right of the window to re-dock to the Conversations window

If you do not see the ⇱ icon then please follow method 2 below.

Method 2

  • Make sure the Conversations window is open; if it isn't, open it with top menu, Comm → Conversations, or Ctrl-T.
  • Make sure the Advanced menu is enabled; if it isn't, enable it with Ctrl-Alt-D.
  • Go to Advanced → Show Debug Settings; this opens a window.
  • In that window, type in ContactsTornOff, then click on FALSE; close the Debug Settings window.
  • Close the Conversations window and the Contacts window, if it is open.
  • Open Conversations, then open Contacts (top menu, Comm → Contacts, or Ctrl-Alt-Shift-F).
  • They should snap back together. If not, try a viewer restart.

For the Nearby Chat window torn off, see this page.
