Can I store my credentials for remote files?

Yes — you have to set up an entry in “Settings -> Preferences -> Stored account” settings.

The credentials are stored as encrypted strings (not readable).

Why don’t I see delta times also with enabled “Show delta times” option?

Delta times can be displayed only if the time stamps in the file are matching one of the predefined patterns (Settings -> Preferences -> Date/time patterns).

You have to create a new pattern matching the date / time format in your file.
