Short task log in the Log View pane of the main window

Together with the Task View pane, the Log View pane is one of the most important control elements. When one of your task finishes with an error, the fastest way to understand what went wrong is to select it in the list, and skim through the respective log. In most cases, the problem can be found in several seconds.

If you want, you can hide the Log View pane. To do it, go to the View menu, point to Log View, and then click Hide/Show Log.
