Is there any way of entering a tab character into the line mask? It might simplify reading it into Excel later. I think the alternative is to use spaces and to put quotes around the filename parameters.

I was able to copy and paste a tab from a text editor into the mask, but I noticed that if I had something like %4.%5[tab]%d then where a filename contained a space, it would put quotes around the entire line instead of just the filename.
E.g. "aaa ddd.sdfdfs sdffdsgfdg 8-10-2015 10:14:47 "

Is this a bug? I'm running 2.4.155.

If I use this mask, it does it correctly: %4.%5 [tab]%d. But then you've got an extra space in the line.
