The log window includes panels for error and information messages. An or icon will appear briefly in the upper right corner of the toolbar when FIV writes an information or error message to the log. Click to open the log window.
The information panel logs a couple of important information messages and provides a convenient place to record notes. To log the coordinate and activation value (or voxel intensity for an anatomic image) at the current mouse position, type Control-W. To log the name and path of the current activation or structural file, point the mouse over the file listing in the toolbar and type Control-W. To preview either of these messages in a popup window, hit the space bar. The information panel is editable and can be saved to a file.
The error panel receives all FIV, java, and system errors. While some of these errors are harmless; others are very bad. If you find that a critical error has occurred, please send the error log to us by clicking on the ‘Submit’ button on the error log panel. Use the ‘Add comment’ text box to let us know what you were doing at the time of the error.
A third panel titled ‘help’ includes a version of this document.
