It would be great to add support for .log files. I know it would be even better to have the ability to register your own file types, but that is a modern limitation.

Hello,

Inside of the app you can add custom file extensions to the Settings / File Types area.  Just drill down into a File Type settings pane and you could add .log files to the Text file type, etc.  This will allow .log files to show up in the Open/Save dialogs within the app.

Did you just want .log files to be opened as plain text in the app?

Actually, I was also thinking about adding custom formatting, so you can better filter with certain types of log files, like being to highlight "error" "info", etc. You know what I mean? Also, I need the file type registered so that I can open the files directly from the desktop.

The problem there is that log files can really be any format as there isn't a particular well-defined syntax for them.  We will add .log as a registered file type for the app, to open with the text file type though.
