Hi Team

I'm not a massive fan of massive log files given somtimes the box your on only has a plain ole text editor, of which a 1gb text file takes forever to load. For this reason I split my logs into 10mb files.

Because of this when I use the folder monitoring feature I loose my filters each time a new file is automatically added and merged. Is it at all possible that in a future release filters could be tied to the idea of the merge log file and not to the instance. I assume what is happening is each time a new file is automatically added a new merge view is created of which therefore looses my nice filters I had all setup!

This tool is exactly what I was looking for and this is the only place in which the app falls short for my needs. Would love to get this fixed!

Cheers,
Michael.

Hi,

I have just done some testing and can confirm that this is a bug.  This is core functionality for us, so this is a serious issue.  We will get this fixed for the next beta release which should be out sometime early next week.

In the meantime, what I would suggest is copying your filters to the clipboard and then pasting them into Notepad to create frequent backups.  Alternatively, you can save the filters as templates.  I realize that these work arounds are poor alternatives, but it may be better then recreating the filter trees.

Thanks for bringing this problem to my attention!
