You can find instructions for removing a message here: Delete messages and files

There's a little blurb about editing messages near the bottom of this page: Keyboard shortcuts and slash commands

I hope this helps.


The /s helps replace spellings, but that doesn't work well when needing to edit more than just a spelling mistake.  Is there any plans to add a true edit message feature?

Thank you.
