Description

The contents of the Log Messages panel grow very long, thus awkward to scroll around. This becomes a nuisance primarily when troubleshooting some issue requires frequent inspection of the log.

It could be nice to be able to periodically clear the Log Messages so that only subsequent messages would display.

The most robust implementation might be to maintain the entire session log, but provide:
a "Clear" button which updates a "beginning of display" pointer to the current end of the log contents
i.e., only subsequently appended messages will display
a "Reload" button to reset the display pointer to the beginning of the log to display the entire log.
