Log Display

Log events are categorized and color coded based on four distinct alert levels; Information, Warning, Error and Alert.




Each log event is displayed by date, category and message. In some cases, the length of the message may be larger than the width of the "Message" column. In this situation, you can hover your mouse above the message in order to have it display in a pop-up type window.

How to preset property defaults

Once you have your properties set to your preference, you can left mouse click on the "preset" text located in the bottom right of the properties dialog. Selecting the option "save" will save these settings as the default settings used every time you open a new window/tab.


If you change your settings and later wish to go back to the original factory settings, you can left mouse click on the preset text and select the option to restore to return to the original factory settings - please note though that you cannot save a custom default to restore to.



A number of pre-defined variables can be used in the "Tab Name" field. For more information, see the "Tab Name Variables" section of the Using Tabs page.
Columns cannot be resorted or removed.
