Does Sourcetree support 'git log --follow' ?

We have files in a repo that were moved within the repo. If you use "git log" on these files, you don't see the full history of the files before the 'git mv' was done. If you use 'git log --follow' on these files, you see the full history before and after the move. Is there a way to configure Sourcetree to use 'git log --follow'? Git for Eclipse supports this feature.

When you do the log selected in Sourcetree there is a checkbox for "Follow renamed files".

Yes there is, and it works!! Thank you!
