How to view build output after the build?

I'm trying to diagnose a problem with a post-build Python script in Rider. In the build output I can see the script's output (caption: "Executing build ...") but when Rider is done building the Build Output disappears from the UI and is replaced with a structured summary of any warnings or errors found during the build (example of caption: "Rebuild succeeded with warnings"). I can't find a way to get back to the build output.

I tried the "Open Log File" tool but that makes Rider hang so bad I have to kill the process.

I also tried "rebuild with diagnostics". That yields an error saying the log format is incorrect. I got around that problem by downloading Microsoft's log viewer but the log doesn't reflect what was dumped in the build output.

Surely, there must be away to view the build output somehow?

Hello Jonas,

In Build toolwindow there is an option to Toogle tree mode, which you can disable it to see build output. Please let me know if that helps.
