Visibility of "orphan" commits in Log view

Eugene Kashpureff
While trying to find some "orphan" commits, I was unable to load them via the branch-selector dropdown in the Log view(using the 'All Branches' selection). Going into Query menu, I found a 'Load All Commits' function which makes them visible, but only for the currently-opened Log window, and this is non-persistent - after closing my Log and then reopening it, I have to go into the Query menu again.

I would appreciate being able to view and work with these commits in a more fluid manner. Would it be possible to add a checkbox to the 'Other Branches' dialog window for the Log view to always display all commits, or to change the behavior of the Query-->Load All Commits function to be toggleable, rather than one-time?

Thanks.

Load All Commits can be expensive and clutters the graph significantly, so we will stay here with the current one-time action. If you need to work with certain orphan commits frequently, you can assign tags to them, then they can easily be loaded using "All Branches" (which may also be a quite expensive query, btw).
