File

The file toolbar is used for managing your log files and views.

1

Reload File

1. Reload File

Reloading the log file is useful if you have previously cleared all log entries and now need to see the cleared entries. It can also be helpful when you are modifying parser configurations, or to refresh a file which is not currently tailed.

2

Time Offset

2. Time Offset

Creates a time offset for the currently selected log file. This will modify all timestamps in the currently selected log file by a user configured amount. This command is useful when you intend to merge multiple log files but the timestamps of the log files are not in sync. Please see the time offset documentation for more details.

3

Copy File Path

3. Copy File Path

Copies the full file path of the selected log file. Note that if the log file is a remote log file (accessed via SFTP or FTP) then LogViewPlus will copy the full path to the temporary file which contains the local version of the log file.

4

Open Text Editor

4. Open Text Editor

Opens the currently selected log file in your default text editor. Your default text editor is the program responsible for opening text (*.txt) files.

5

Explore Directory

5. Explore Directory

Opens the directory which contains the currently selected log file in Windows Explorer. Note that if the log file is a remote log file (accessed via SFTP or FTP) then LogViewPlus will open the temporary directory which contains the local version of the log file.

6

Log File Properties

6. Log File Properties

Opens the log file properties dialog. This window is useful for finding out more information about your log file including where it is located and how it was parsed.

7

Parser Wizard

The Parser Wizard can be used to quickly add or modify the parser configuration for the currently selected log file.
