How to show origin label in History

In the Description part when viewing a branch History, SourceTree version 2.x showed labels for your local branch, like if your branch was up to date:

"master"/"origin master"


if your branch wasn't up to date:

"origin master"

... <a number of commits here> ...

"master 17 behind"


Now with version 3.1.2 (216), there's only my local label, no "origin <name-of-branch>". Is there a setting or something I'm missing as to why this label is no longer visible?

I needed to select "Show Remote Branches" in order for the remote (origin) label to show/hide.
