How to retain old Message Windows

When i run my project again, the old message window is overwritten, i do not want it to overwrite the old message window since i might want to see what error message i got previously. For example in the Find window i can view the old search results by clicking on the button...
I am aware that there is an export option to save the content of the message window in a text file, but i dont want to do this everytime and coming from the Eclipse world am use to having my old console output available for viewing anytime.
I am using Idea 7.0.4

The question applies to run window as well...can some one make this thread a question, considering that i was beyond my 15 minute time period to make it a question...

Hello vipin,

When i run my project again, the old message window is overwritten, i
do not want it to overwrite the old message window since i might want
to see what error message i got previously. For example in the Find
window i can view the old search results by clicking on the button...

I am aware that there is an export option to save the content of the
message window in a text file, but i dont want to do this everytime
and coming from the Eclipse world am use to having my old console
output available for viewing anytime.


Right click the tab of the Messages window and select "Pin Tab" from the
context menu.

k, i was able to do pin tab, but i don't see how it helps. When i run my application again it overwrites the old console, how do i retrieve the old console on which i had earlier said "Pin Tab"

While the 'Pin Tab' works fine for the 'Message' window, now i have the new ant task being run in a new tab, on the 'Run' window 'Pin Tab' solution does not work since the same window gets overwritten when i run my application again. Is there any idea how can i get this functionality (of not removing the old outputs) on the 'Run' window.

It worked on the Run window as well, when i rerun a particular application using the 'Rerun' button it overwrites the console though which makes sense i guess, but i got confused thinking its not opening new tab in the 'Run' window.

Thanks.
