Output Window

The Output Window displays all of the cmds, errors, results and other trace generated by Maya. Similar to Maya's native script editor, any code that is executed in Maya is displayed in Charcoal Editor's Output Window.

Note: Verbose tracing can be enabled by turning on Echo All Command. Echoing all commands can affect Maya's performace due to the excessive trace generated. It is highly recommended that users turn this on only when required.

Errors, Warnings and Results

Charcoal Editor displays errors, warnings and results, each in a different color (red, yellow and green respectively), in the Output Window. Distinguishing the different messages by color allows users to quickly identify areas of interest.

The Output Window font and colors can be modified in the Fonts and Colors section of Preferences.
