The Log Files Button: Access Log Files

The Log Files button in the Help Menu brings up the File Selection panel pointing at the directory containing the log files. "Opening" one of the entries will bring up the File Browser loaded with the selected file.

The log files are kept in a temporary directory which is created when Xic is started. On normal exit, this directory is deleted, so if the user wishes to retain one or more of the log files, the files must be copied to a safe place. If Xic terminates unexpectedly, the directory is retained, and therefor the files are available for post-mortem debugging.
