Hi Meni,

I can see where this would be helpful and it is something we are considering.  Application settings are due for a re-think.  In particular, the current setup is very individual focused and we would like to move to a more team focused model.  For example, it would be great if settings could be easily managed from a central location.  This kind of setup would imply a lot more variation in parser and column configurations per log file.

We plan to address data manipulation and reporting issues first, but application settings management is definitely something we are thinking about.

Hope that helps,

Toby

Thanks Meni.  Glad to hear you are finding LogViewPlus helpful.  :-)

Hopefully we can get some of these changes out in the second half of 2022.  I will post back here when I have something for you in beta.

Hi Toby,

Is there a way to even persist columns globally? I finding myself repeatedly re-adding columns and readjusting their width.

Hi Meni,

Column settings are persisted as part of the parser configuration.  Files which use the same parser configuration will share the same column layout.  Modifying the parser configuration will reset the column layout.

So, the only way to achieve this at the moment is to reuse your parser configurations more widely.  Auto-generated parser configurations are not particularly good at supporting reuse, so there may be an opportunity to consolidate.

Hope that helps,

Toby

Unfortunately, it does not seem to work for me. I'm using multiple files, also merge, and two pattern parsers in a single workspace. I did not make any changes to the parsers, but still, every time I open thr workspace, all the columns layout gets reset.

That's strange.  What version of LogViewPlus are you using?  Can you check the file properties in LogViewPlus and confirm the parser used is as expected?

Also, try opening and closing just a single file.  I wonder if maybe the changes are getting overwritten some how.

Using latest. I've checked file properties and it indeed uses the right parser. The issue is with the fact it is automatic. At what point do you save layout? What if I resize? Add/remove columns? I cannot tell or force it to "save now". Again, I'm using merging... Maybe that's a hint.

Saving is automatic when the layout changes.

Merge file settings cannot be saved because because there is no associated parser.

Try setting one file and see if those changes are persisted and restored correctly.
