The Console panel displays information, messages and warnings about the operation in progress, or an operation that was recently performed.


To display the console for a particular project:

Click the tab with the project name, then open its console using the View > Console command. Each view will have a different console.


To use the Console panel:

Each console has a maximum number of characters. If this maximum is exceeded, the oldest characters disappear in order to make room for new characters.

Right-click on the Console tab to access commands allowing you to move, hide, rearrange, or restore panels and views. (See Hide, show, move, or resize items in the MegAlign Pro window).

The following tools are available in the upper right of the Console panel:

Tool Name Description
Clear Console Clears all text from the active Console.
Scroll Lock Stops auto-scrolling caused by alignment output. When alignment output is long, this may fail due to a limit on the amount of text in the console.
Word Wrap Controls whether or not lines wider than the console panel should be wrapped.
Pin Console Keeps the current Console active even if another project is selected.
Display Selected Console Consoles can be displayed for one or more open projects. If more than one alignment is in progress, clicking the arrow to the right of this icon opens a drop-down menu from which the desired Console can be brought to the front.
Open Console Opens a new Console. If more than one alignment is in progress at the same time, you can open a new Console and pin it to a particular run using Pin Console (above).
Minimize Minimizes the Console.
Maximize Maximizes the Console.
