That's what I tried, but it doesn't work for me. Thanks anyway. It might have something to do with me opening my inventory to type in chat, so I'll try just hitting enter to open the chat like Acadian suggested.Emotes look like this:
Just replace emote with sit or lute or whatever you're trying to do. Nothing else to it!
Doesn't matter what chat channel you're in.
Update: I just tried it without opening my inventory first (I used "enter" instead as Acadian suggested), and I was able to get it to work for the first time ever. Thanks so much guys for answering.
