Is it possible to redirect the output of a node launched through a separate launch file, bypassing any output="screen" set within it? Unfortunately it seems the <include> tag has no such option to set a global output tag.

I don't believe this is currently supported.

A work-around could be to use an arg and then pass that down to the included launch file. But you'd have to be able to edit the launch file to add support for the arg of course.

Unfortunately it is not my package and I would like to avoid directly changing anything in it, including its launch files.
