You can filter messages by severity.
To enable or disable the display of a specific message type:
- Go to the Messages window.
- Select (to enable) or deselect (to disable) the check box next to a message severity in the window header.
You can change the severity of a specific message ID. For example, you can decrease the severity of a message you do not believe is critical, or increase the severity of a message you think demands more attention.
To increase or decrease the severity of a message, use the
set_msg_config Tcl command. For example:
set_msg_config -id "[Common 17-81]" -new_severity "CRITICAL WARNING"
