No, but even the text file has a line of headings at the top, just so you
get the idea to start with. Don't forget that TBlame is now the default
display for blames, so it might not be so obvious to a new user.

I was thinking just when the mouse is over the revision, same way as the
colourisation & hints work. With a wheel mouse it is easy to scroll down and
hover over the line you want.

I just noticed if I click on the info the colourization changes and its not
quite clear what it means then.

No, I was actually suggesting it would be better to use a text editor on the
plain text file if you really want to print. That's why I suggested making
it easier to switch between TBlame and TextFile.
