OCD for the Visual C++ Output Window

Recommended Posts

Absolutely. horrendous. At least, it is for my obsessive nature. Would any of you with experience using this IDE give me suggestions as to how I can... 1) make the output appear less cluttered by inserting line break between the building of each individual project? (also, possibly inserting line breaks before "Compiling...", "Linking...", etc.) 2) remove

? Thanks for your generous help in this matter. My eyelid will twitch a tiny bit less frequently if I can figure this out.
