Exporting the log file

This page explains how to find the application log file and how to share it to ask for support.

Retrieving the log file

There are two ways of obtaining the log file:

Exporting the log file from the application

The log file can be directly exported from the application by going into the Help menu and selecting the Export log action.

Retrieving the log file manually on the disk

If the application doesn't launch it will not be possible to export the log file. Fortunately the log file can be located manually on the disk. Navigate to the folder matching your operating system below and retrieve the log.txt file manually.
