I have a question about using TeXstudio, how to clear display of LaTeX errors and warnings in texstudio?
enter image description here
I copied the image from TeXstudio github webpage, and found out about this feature, but I don't know how to achieve this. It will be highly appreciated if anybody can shed some light regarding this.

  • I suspect you are misunderstanding "clear" here. In doesn't mean "empty" the display but more in the sense of "good display of errors". Commented Apr 12, 2018 at 7:33
  • @UlrikeFischer I think you're right, I must have misunderstood the meaning here. Thanks for pointing out.

  • Anyway, so how to empty those disturbing errors when there have a lot of errors after compiling?

  • I don't use texstudio, but I would say that way to get rid of them is to correct the document. Commented Apr 12, 2018 at 9:23
  • @Jiapan (Un-)Show log markers: imgur.com/a/qumIY (for un-highlighting errors in the document), and (Un-)Show Error/Warning/Bad box (the 3 symbols to its left) for un-showing errors in the "issues" window. This is temporary though, they show up again after recompilation if the errors are still present.

I think they intend that with View > View > Messages / Log file (I'm not sure about the names because I have the Italian version) you can see a list of the errors, other than the complete log:

and if you pass the mouse on the "no trespassing" sign near the wrong instruction, you can see the error description also there:

If the display doesn't look familiar to you, take into account I have a dark theme.
