How to configure "Log Selected" in SourceTree preferences? Edited

Is it possible to override how the "Log Selected" feature in SourceTree operates by configuring it somewhere in the preferences?

My motivation is that I would like my sourcetree's "Log Selected" feature to use the `--follow` flag and even list the history before any file renames occured.

I don't think you can change the behavior of the Log Selected option, but you should be able to create a custom action that uses the --follow option.

sorry that i had to use a snapshot to get my point across, apparently i used "inappropriate language or spam"

You need to include $REPO as well, $FILE only includes the path within the repository.

This worked for me when I tested it right nowCustom Action.png

Btw, the "inappropriate language or spam" is a known issue and it is being worked on, see

Once again, thank you Mikael :)
