    "core.footer.line2": "To customize the footer text, see the Customizing TrueSight console footer topic in the online documentation."

    Notes

    - Do not modify or remove the keys core.footer.line1 and core.footer.line2.

    - If the text length exceeds the width of the page, the text beyond the view is hidden with an ellipsis.

    - If you want to insert a \ (backward slash) or display the double-quotes in the footer, do the following:

    - For inserting a \ character, you must insert the \ twice. For example, to display C:\Program Files in the footer, you must type it as C:\\Program Files. The footer text is displayed as C:\Program Files.
    - For inserting the double-quotes character, you must insert a single \ character before the double-quotes. For example, to display A quick brown fox within quotes, you must type the text as \"A quick brown fox.\" The text is displayed as "A quick brown fox."
