Thank you so much Death! Worked perfect. One more question if you don't mind. I have set the font size to 8 and upon doing a /rl it will correctly size the chat font to the size of 8. The problem now is that when loggin out and logging back in the font reverts back to the size of 10. Is there anyway to lockin a size of 8 so I don't have to continue editing the .lua and reloading the UI for it to register ?

What file?
I need text(chat block) of your config file.

When editing the file you made a syntax error, and for this you have such a mistake.
