In Wireshark 1.6.4 I have a "costum column" - "data.text" to see my Telegramm-stream

What about this information in Wireshark 1.8 --> data.text show's me an empty column?

Very hard to find.. but:

Edit > Preferences > Protocols > Data > check "Show data as text"

Then the custom column using data.text will show text in the column.

Now I can see the packet data (payload) for any protocol in plain text at a glance!

(Using Version 1.10.2 (SVN Rev 51934 from /trunk-1.10))
