Part 9. Living Online > Editing Your iChat Buddy List

Editing Your iChat Buddy List

To add a buddy in iChat, choose Window, Buddy List and click the + button.

Choose a listing from your Address Book and click Select Buddy, or click New Person to add someone who's not in your Address Book.

To change a buddy's screen name or other information, Ctrl-click the name and choose Get Info from the contextual menu.

INTRODUCTION

If iChat finds your buddies' screen names in your Address Book, it can attach their real names to them and display those in the Buddy List window. The most convenient thing you can do with the buddy list is set it to show only buddies who are online at the moment.


TIP

Nice to Meet You

If you're adding a completely new person to your buddy list, you must enter the screen name. If you want, you can also add the person's first and last name and email address. When you're done, click +.


TIP

Bye-Bye

To remove a buddy, click to select the name and choose Buddies, Remove Buddy.


Choose Address Card from the Show pop-up menu and make your changes.

To make notes about the person, choose the screen name from the pop-up menu and enter the information in the Your Notes field; then click OK.

To show only buddies who are currently online, choose View, Show Offline Buddies to remove the check mark next to it.
