For Your Information
Edit mode is basically an editbox that overlays the chat frame.
The text will revert if you try to make changes.
No new text will be added to the chat frame while you're in Edit Mode. Exit Edit Mode to see more recent messages.
Because of auto-line wrapping, smooth scrolling vs line scrolling, indenting and non-standard width fonts it is nearly impossible to map the scroll position of the chat frame on to an editbox. For this reason when you enter edit mode it will always scroll down to the bottom.
