How to open a log in Logr

You can open a log in Logr in several ways:

  1. Double-click a log file. However, in order for that to work, you need to set Logr as the default programme for viewing log files. To that end:
    1. Right-click a log file
    2. Click “Properties”
    3. In the drop-down list, select Logr
  2. In the running Logr, press Cmd+o (or go to the File menu -> Open…), then navigate to the file you want to open.

TIP: Sometimes logs can reside in hidden folders. In such case, when the Logr Open panel is displayed, press Cmd+Shifg+g (Cmd+G). An address input will be displayed, in which you can type the address of the folder where your log is.

    1. Your onto something with this tool, i really like it!
      Im using expandrive to open remote log files (it mounts scp/sftp paths) – is there a better way to do this? I am however getting confused when I open two logs of the same name from two locations. (ie syslog)
