  • Specify the full path to a specific file. Type the path manually or click Browse browseButton.png and choose the file in the dialog that opens.

  • Specify the base directory and add an Ant pattern that defines the fileset to be displayed.

Show All Files Coverable by Pattern

Select this checkbox to have CLion open a separate dedicated tab for each log file that matches the specified pattern.

Please note the following:

  • If no alias is specified, the dedicated tab header shows the path to each log file.

  • If a pattern covers more than one file, the tab header shows the name of the file instead of the log entry alias, even is an alias is specified.
