In macOS I have always archived iMessages when I’ve dealt with them. When I get a response the full conversation pops back up. There seems to be no way of archiving conversations anymore in iMessage? It seems to only have the option of deleting the conversations outright.
I used to hit CMD+Shift+W to move quickly through chats and it was great. Or hit the little ‘x’ that used to archive chats, which now seems to be a full on delete button. It was a great way of ‘clearing’ that list so I knew for sure everything was dealt with. Anyone know about this?
