Recently went to send someone a message and had the drop down from their name to the "Send Message" box.
Typed my message and sent it.
When I got a reply back, it wasn't from the person that I sent the message.
Just a found out the the "Send Message" button brings you to the messaging app within the software, it does not start a message from the person from which you clicked "Send Message"
Not sure if this is works as intended or it is a bug.
I did notice that if you click the 'compose' button, the person you intended to send the message to will automatically populate the 'Send to' field.
I do agree though, clicking send message should take your directly to this second screen shot.
When I hover over the person's name, I just get "Send Message" and "View Profile". Where is the little "Compose Icon" that you are showing?
Very un-intuitive. Last time I just started typing in the reply area, because I thought it had brought me to the last conversation with the person to which I clicked.
I agree...it's very unexpected that the send message" option is shown when you are over a user but it takes you to "my messages", with the first message in the list opened with a reply box available...
