Why do merges of pull requests not display anything in the graph?

Why do merges of pull requests not display a line in the graph, showing the merge? We know what branch is being merged in, it's right in the pull request, but yet the graph shows no line connecting them back into one line??? It just looks like all branches never got merged in, but they did? Who decided this was the way to display the graph?

Hi can you check you have the 'Show Remote Branches' option checked at the top of the log view?

Is it possible that the PR has been merged but you are not seeing the remote state and you haven't fetched since the PR merge?

It is checked.

How can I have not fetched from the remote if I can see the commit where the branch is being merged?

Apologies, i confused 2 issues.

Can you let me know whether changing the Current/All branches option and the Show Remote Branches option changes the view?

I don't understand your question, it was mis-written and confusingly worded. 

If you are asking whether toggling Current/All Branches and unchecking and rechecking Show Remote Branches does anything to resolve this problem: the answer is no.

Sorry for any confusion, thanks for the answer.

Can I ask what the graph looks like when you run

>git log --oneline --abbrev-commit --all --graph

Do the lines join in that?
