Super-Size Your Log Searches

At SolarWinds® Papertrail, we know that when you’re combing through lines and lines of long event messages, every pixel matters. That’s why in the new Papertrail event viewer, we introduced the ability to hide the application chrome.

Hiding the application chrome, or ‘presentation mode,’ removes the header and navigation menus and maximizes your screen real estate.

So far the feedback on this new option has been great. Papertrail fans all over have let us know how much they like this new option. Hiding the application chrome lets them see more of the log message, reduces scrolling, and simplifies troubleshooting.

If you’ve been in the new Papertrail event viewer lately (if not, you should soon!), you might have noticed we made a small change to the way you can hide and display the application chrome. We have now included this option at the bottom of the display options menu.

This change groups all the display preferences in one place and makes it easier to find. This should also make it easier to toggle “hide application chrome” on and off.

Try out the new event viewer and all the new display options, and let us know what you think.
