In-Game Chat box Disappearing Issue

Is there no option to prevent the chat box from fading away every 20-30s even with active chat going on in the box? It doesn’t reappear unless I hit “Enter” as if I’m about to start typing. When zoning it disappears and when playing normally and talking in chat it just fades away. At least give us the option to enable or disable chat disappearing as the lock and unlock buttons do not work.

Is there an .ini file that an edit can be made to prevent chat from fading?
