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?

Hi Craig. You're definitely not alone in wishing for something more robust.

Here's a feature request that you might want to vote for and watch: HCPUB-1799

Hi,is it possible to rename files already loaded in a HipChat room?

Thank you. 

Yeah.. i think this must be MOST WANTED feature that is not so hard to implement. I personally prefer RocketChat while HipChat will not fix this issue.
