Request: Option to make "All" the default branch selection in Log pane

Eugene Kashpureff
I would like a preference setting to default to showing "All Branches" when opening the Log pane. At present, I need to choose this from the drop down each time I open a new repository, and this preference is occasionally lost, without any indication other than the branches "going away" from view. This causes problem in branch/merge-heavy workflows.

Thank you.

"All Branches" would be no good default as, depending on the repository, it may require significantly more time for the initial display of the Log window.

The Log window shares these settings e.g. with Check Out. Maybe that's the reason why you have the impression that it's lost?
