View Scala logs in IntelliJ

Here's the link to my original question on StackOverflow

I'd like to test the Scala code that I've just written by running small fragments of it separately in a Scala Worksheet. What sounds like a trivial affair isn't working because:

  1. After updating the code, the Scala Worksheet keeps running the obsolete code. I've already ticked the Make Project checkbox and have even tried the enabling Use REPL Mode without luck. When even a complete cycle of sbt reload > sbt update > sbt clean > sbt compile doesn't fix the issue, I wonder what will.

  2. Even if I manage to fix the above issue, next thing is that I'm unaware of any possible way to view the log messages generated by typesafe Logger within IntelliJ IDEA. There might be some file where these logs are being dumped but leaving the IDE to view log file sounds less-than-ideal in 2018. The only other alternative would be to manually replace (or augment) each log line throughout my project with println. Something makes me think that there's got to be a better way. The IntelliJ docs page for Setting Log Options isn't very helpful as it is outdated and I cannot find the same UI as shown in the screenshots over there
