  • Information: An informational message only; no further action is required.

  • Warnings: A warning that may require you to take action.

  • Errors: An error that requires you to take action.

When there are several messages displayed in the Infolog, you can right-click an item to open a shortcut menu. This menu includes these commands:

  • Copy to clipboard – Copy the selected text to the clipboard as a single line.

  • Copy as list to Clipboard – Copy the selected text in a structured tab-separated format to the clipboard.

  • Print... - You can also press CTRL+P to print an Infolog report. In addition to the messages in the Infolog, the report includes information such as serial number, release version, and build number.
