Keep current row when removing filter

Post by obarak » Wed Aug 20, 2014 8:20 am

Hi,

Many times when I analyze a log, I'm using a filter to find the row I want, and then want to see the context around that row. To do that I remove the filter. The problem is the highlighted row returns to row number 1, and I need to manually scroll down for that row I was in... It would be great if the default behavior when changing/removing a filter is to remain on the last row that was highlighted (assuming it's still visible).

Thanks,
Omer

Hello Omer,

You're right, thank you for your feedback.
This will be fixed in the next release (v5.2.0 which should be available in a fews weeks, I will let you know by posting a message on this topic).

In the meantime, you can bookmark the selected log entry (Ctrl+F2), then after removing the filter, use F2 to go back to bookmarked entry.

Hello Omer,

LogMX v5.2.0 is now available, and includes (among many other great features), a fix for this issue: now you simply have to click on a log entry (i.e. select/highlight it) before removing one or more filter(s) to automatically get back to this entry once the filter(s) has been removed.
