Events that have been generated by the various program components are displayed under Events.

The events are stored in a database. You can limit the size of the event database or disable the restriction on the database size (see ). Only the events of the last 30 days are saved in the default setting. The event display is automatically updated when you select the Events section.

The display is not automatically updated when the section is selected if there are more than 20,000 events stored in the event database. In this case, press F5 to update the event viewer.
