Way too many irrelevant messages in the Dev Mode console window

The console window is full of messages, even errors, from the bundled aircraft, even before you load your own project. Like those about the C172 in the attached screenshot. (Sure, you can empty the console, but for some reason the simulator re-reads information for other aircraft when you select the one you have just built.) Could there be some way to make sure that the console window contains only messages related to the project you have open? Or could the bundled aircraft even be fixed to not generate errors or warnings in the console window...?

Also, I wish it was possible to copy the text from the console window to the clipboard... seems like a fairly obvious missing feature.

there is copy icon to the left of the search field (be careful to copy too long log, game may crash).

amount of errors/warnings after last updates became a problem, default aircraft could be examples for developers and do not drop any warnings.

Ah! Now that you say it... I probably had used that "copy" button some months ago even but now forgotten about it.

Hello,

We agree that the console could use some improvements... And we've made some changes that will be available in the next update :

- Hiding irrelevant messages

- Giving more details on the file concerned by the error/warning

- Allowing multiple messages selection

- Allowing copy/paste

- Saving the output in a file.

Hope it will make the console more efficient & helpful!

BTW, in case it isn't obvious, one message that needs more detail is the "mesh[204] primitive[0] has invalid or missing AsoboPrimitiveExtra data" one. At least log the names of the mesh and primitive in question.
