Log Templates

I got the Log Templates working again with it finding my file good and using it with placeholders correctly (v10.2.12). The issue I have is with the logging process. When I wish to log a cache as a find and I have the "Use Template File" flag checked, it still requires me to input an entry on the "Log Text" line. At first I though it would allow me to add this entry to the beginning of the Template file but no matter what I put into this field it goes nowhere??? This adds 4 extra steps in the log process of just putting something in to that line to log the caches which is not needed if all the info is in the Template file. Need to make the "Log Text" line not mandatory when the "Use Template File" flag is checked and if you do input something there it could be added to the start of the Template text as a special entry for just that cache. Just a thought

Thanks for the feedback. I'll update Geooh to turn off the required flag for Log Text if the Use Log Template is checked and has something in the template.

Thanks for the quick reply. If you are going to dig into that issue there's one more I notice in the same area. You have a flag to add to my log a "Found by Geooh GO". This doesn't work if you are using the external Template file. Just something else to throw into the fire.  Thanks again for such a great app in which I have only scratched the surface of what I can do with it.

Do you mean the signature doesn't show or it does on templates even if unchecked?

Sorry got called off by the American Red Cross to deploy back east and now just getting back to my life. What I was saying is the signature doesn't show at end of log with flag set. I had only notice this when I was using the Template flag set and not sure if it's the same in any other method of logging. Haven't had a chance to play since last communication so no further testing since then. Will update more when I can. Thanks for your time.
