I like the new log viewer in v7.11.

However It would be great if it wouldn't disable the background mirc window while opened.
You always have to clos/reopen it, when you need to copy/paste something from/to a mirc window.

It's opened "on top" by default.

Right-click the window button and unselect it.

Right click where?
Once it's opened you can't click anywhere else...
And the log viewer window itself doesnt have an "on-top" property in its context menu.

At the top, left corner of the window that displays your log, you have an icon (in the titlebar). Right click and uncheck On Top.

He seems to be talking about the dialog which lists log files, not the @View window that displays their contents.

I don't see any reason for the log files dialog to be modal, but then again I don't see any reason for any of the other dialogs in mIRC to be modal (i.e., options, favorites, channel list, address book, online timer, colors, send file, etc.).

Oh, yeah, I mean the "Log files" window that displays a list of the logfiles.

A non-modal version would be really nice
