Display Log Files
You can display log files in an MDI document tab. Upon display, Director automatically scrolls to the last line in the log and highlights the most recent entry. To refresh the log from disk, you must click the Refresh button. Number of lines and log size are displayed in the tab’s status bar.
You cannot edit a displayed log file, but you can save it as another file.
