The Console View shows the traces of all the actions performed by the application. If the view is not displayed, it can be opened by selecting it from the Window > Show View menu.

Part of the displayed messages mirror the communication between the application and the Apache Subversion™ server. The output is expressed as subcommands to the Subversion server and simulates the Subversion command-line notation. For a detailed description of the Subversion console output read the SVN User Manual.

The view has a simple layout, with most of its space occupied by a message area. On its right side, there is a toolbar holding the following buttons:
Clear
Erases all the displayed messages.
Lock scroll
Disables the automatic scrolling when new messages are appended in the view.
The maximum number of lines displayed in the console (length of the buffer) can be modified in the Preferences page. By default, this value is set to 100.
