I currently use Handsent SMS rather than the stock unit to send sms to avoid the phone converting sms to mms messages when the 3 text limit has been reached. Does sending an sms through airdroid mean it is sent through the stock app or handsent? And if through the stock app, will it convert to mms if I go over the 3 test threshold for my network?

How do you create carriage returns in SMS messages - like in Samsung Kies or other similar apps, you just hit the return key, but this actually fires off the message in Airdroid. I want carriage returns because it makes for nicely formatted messages. (I have tried CTRL+Enter - not working either).

How do I simply reply to a message without having to create a new message, choose the recipient, etc. Also, when I receive a message, I see what seems to be a conversation mode, but I can't find how to go back to that mode at any other time. I see a "tab" at the bottom with that person's name and avatar, but I don't know what to do with that. Clicking on it does nothing.

I started using this application. Very great app (thanks for that), but regarding to the messages functionality i have some questions (can't find any answers in the faq):
- messages sent to multiple recipients aren't show in the messages dialogue box ?
- is it possible to delete an individual text message instead of the whole thread ?
- is it possible to download (or export) a thread inta a *.txt or *.csv (or other extension) or google docs in order to save it (which give me then the possibility to delete the entire thread on my phone) ?

Thanks in advance

Shift+Enter for carriage returns works in IE9 and Google Chrome but NOT in Firefox. Please make it available in Firefox too. Thanks.

I'm having the same issue as Vance, is there any fix for this?
Galaxy Nexus, AOKP ROM (Build 29, Android 4.0.4), using Chrome on my laptop. Same issue with IE as well.

Edit: Just tried Firefox, works in that, but I dislike using Firefox and vastly prefer Chrome.
