Description Adrian Alonso 2016-09-09 13:38:37 UTC
The experience could be the following:

- When the debugger is launched using a physical device, the device log window is automatically shown and the logging for the target device is started
- When the debugger is stopped, the device logging is stopped as well
- Add "Auto start/stop Device Log" setting @ Tools -> Options to enable/disable the feature (should be enabled by default)
