Can I hide inactive branches?

When using Mercurial closed branches are not shown in the side list of branches. Is there a way to also hide inactive branches?

I've recently converted an older bzr repository, so there are about 400 inactive branches. Closing them all would make the graph unusable, but they are of course inactive.

Hi Theo,

Mercurial does provide a way to show only active branches (hg branches -a) so this is possible. This is the first request we've had for this feature actually. I've logged a feature request for you here:

Many thanks for the input


Is it possible to add this feature to Windows version also?

It would be very helpful.

A lot of thanks for your project!

Does changing the drop-down in the upper left, from "All Branches" to "Current Branch" get you what you need?
