How to customise MEGS_Log

Many MEGS_Log settings can be changed using the Options dialog box, accessible via the Options command under the Tools menu.

Customisation of aspects such as the graphical patterns used to draw the different rock types, the list of rock types available, the list of site, seam and ply names and the default settings for the display of a geophysical trace is carried out by editing the MegsLogConfig.txt file. This is a plain text file installed in the MEGS_Log program files directory (by default C:\Program files\MEGMS\MEGS_Log) that can be edited using a program such as Notepad.

You can edit the configuration file by clicking the Edit configuration file buttion on the Settings tab of the Options dialog box. This command edits the copy of the configuration file in the users application data directory. If the configuration file is not in that directory then the configuration file from the same directory as the MEGS_Log executable is first copied across.
