How to paste properly a log?

Really easy, copy and paste it, and give it the console style (Styles -> Console)

Example:

wine: Call from

0x7b83d8e9 to unimplemented function imm32.dll.ImmGetContext,
aborting

wine: Unimplemented
function imm32.dll.ImmGetContext called at address 0x7b83d8e9 (thread
0026), starting debugger...

err:module:load_builtin_dll
failed to load .so lib for builtin L"dbghelp.dll":
/home/jonsnow/.PlayOnLinux//wine/linux-x86/1.7.1-GuildWars2/lib/libz.so.1:
fichier trop court

err:module:import_dll
Loading library dbghelp.dll (which is needed by
L"C:\\windows\\system32\\winedbg.exe") failed (error
c000007a).

 

How to paste properly a script?

Exactly the same, but instead of Console, choose PlayOnLinux script. The code will be coloured once posted
:

#!/bin/bash
# Date : (2014-06-09 20:00)
# Last revision : (2014-06-09 20:00)
