Highlight Manager

Highlight Manager

Highlighting allows you to search for text and mark it to make it easier to find.  The LogViewPlus highlight manager makes it easy to manage all of your text highlights.

Note that having an excessive number of highlights may lead to decreased application performance when displaying a large number of highlighted log entries.  If you are experiencing performance problems and have a large number of highlights, try decreasing the number of highlights.  If the performance problems persist, please contact support.
