Copies the selected text onto the clipboard. You can use the operating system hotkeys to do this (e.g. Ctrl+C or Ctrl+Insert in Windows).
The Save log option enables saving of the entire log or its selected part in any file on the disk.
The dialog options are as follows:
Format — the log may be saved as in plain text (TXT) or in hypertext (HTML). If the log is saved in HTML, the encoding and colours (where highlighting was used) will be saved. If it is expected that the log would be processed by a script, it might be better to save it in plain text.
Source — the option enables saving of the entire log or a selected part of the text.
The Only selection option is not active by default. Once a part of the text in the log is selected by the pointer, the option becomes active and the selected text can be saved.
Use this option to find a particular log row. Insert search criteria into the Find entry (words, numerals, characters).
Start from — text can be scanned either from the start of the log or from the start of the selected text (only text displayed in the window is scanned) or from the last found occurrence of the string.
Direction — set whether the log will be scanned upwards or downwards (Up, Down).
