I think if you just push shift, it will work.

RE: /me is typing a message
At the moment, we have very little control over the "x is typing a message" notices and so on. Unfortunately, what you seem to be requesting is not possible at this time.

The problem is that to detect and send these notifications you'd need to use something like Xniff, which is rather unreliable to use. Hopefully in some future release of Messenger Plus!, we will have a much improved scripting engine that can handle things like this.

Xniff can only sniff/read the protocol, not changing or sending something.

I doubt very much that there will ever be something to directly write to the protocol. It simply is too dangerous and too much stuff can go wrong...

What you could do to simulate a "user is typing" is simulating a keypress. This can already be done using Windows APIs. The downside is that the chat window should be open and probably be in focus in order to make it work.
