To select multiple events, hold the SHIFT key down and select the event range to be copied either by the mouse or by the cursor control keys. Non-continuous event ranges can be selected by holding the CTRL key and selecting the event rows by the mouse.

Sending items to the ORF Administration Tool

Right click the selected event and select the data that you want to send to the ORF Administration Tool. See the Remote Control section for more information.

Customization

Changing the column order

Grab the column header and pull it to its new location in the header. Alternatively, you can use the Column Settings dialog to change the order.

Sorting columns

Click the header of the column to sort the Event View by the contents of the selected column. The active sort column is marked with gray background.

The default sort order is descending. Change the sort order by a repeated click on the column header. To control the sort order from menu, right-click the column header and select either Sort Ascending or Sort Descending from the popup menu.

Fit column to contents (Fit and Autofit)

Right click the column header and select Fit Column to fit the column length to the widest data in the column. Select Autofit This Column to automatically fit the column on log reloads or filtering. Some columns, such as Sender or Recipient(s) are Autofit by default.

Press CTRL - Grey Plus to fit the all columns of the Event View at once. Press CTRL - Grey Minus to minimize the columns to the smallest possible width.

Hiding and restoring columns

Columns can be hidden or restored by using the Column Settings dialog.

To display the Column Settings dialog, right click the header and select Choose Columns... from the popup menu.

Select the column to hide or restore from the list of the available columns and clear or set its checkbox.

Change the column order by selecting the column to move and setting the new position using the Move Up and Move Down buttons.

To reset the column settings to the Log Viewer defaults, click Reset.
