TrueLog Explorer offers two viewing modes, or perspectives, to accommodate various TrueLog types. The default, most commonly used view perspective for Silk Performer users is the Explorer perspective. Explorer perspective offers the full range of script customization features offered by TrueLog Explorer. Explorer perspective enables all functionality offered by the TrueLog Explorer workflow bar. By default, attended Silk Performer tests always produce Explorer-perspective TrueLogs.

Viewer perspective enables only a subset of the context-menu commands across all TrueLog Explorer views and disables the workflow bar. The intent of this perspective is to offer a simplified view for users who are not customizing their scripts, and to support TrueLog types for which script customization is unavailable. By default, unattended Silk Performer tests and Silk Test tests always produce Viewer-perspective TrueLogs.
