Columns/Panels UI: display text file in a panel
Iv Looked around and didnt find much about this.... I Have my own logs about my music saved in the album folder about that album... and i would like to open that in a panel so i can see it... kinda how lyrics panel works... is there a way to do this with lyrics panel with out having to edit all my txt docs by adding 00:01 and all that good stuff?  Or is there any other way of doing this?

Thanks

The workaround I use is to open my "info" files in notepad using run services.

$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,info.)txt

With the new beta, you can add a button to perform the function (or just use the context menu)

I tried your string and it worked fine for me.


(I am using run v 3.2 - there was a change in the newest one that broke some of my strings and this could be one of them, sorry!)
