Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I think the 'reply to' feature of the chat is very important (and good). But the 'reply to' symbol on the right side of every chat message is way to tiny, especially for tablet/mobile use.

Can we create a 'reply to' button on the right side of every message, just like the 'down arrow' field on the left side?

Often I click on it to select some text and I don't want that to accidentally be interpreted as a reply. – Lorem Ipsum Feb 23 '13 at 20:46
But you still had to actually send the message for it to become a reply. – Flow Feb 23 '13 at 20:47
I don't want the field populated with the message ID either... What if I then type something else, but accidentally reply to that earlier message? – Lorem Ipsum Feb 23 '13 at 20:48
What do you think of the edited idea? – Flow Feb 23 '13 at 20:53
Install this, use the keyboard, worry less about tiny click targets. – Shog9 Feb 23 '13 at 20:58
Thanks for the pointing me to the script Shog9, but it won't help in all cases and it's not really the solution I am looking for. – Flow Feb 24 '13 at 9:57
