Description

If Options>General>Attribute table behaviour is set to "Show all features", when you open an attribute table all the features are shown, but there is a checkbox to override this and show only the selected features.
If Options>General>Attribute table behaviour is set to "Show selected features", then only the selected features are shown, regardless of whether you check or uncheck the "Show selected only" checkbox.

It would be nice if these two features worked together, i.e. "Attribute table behaviour" should just affect the default state of the "Show selected only" checkbox. So if it is set to "Show selected features", when you open an attribute table "Show selected only" should be checked, and you should be able to uncheck it to show all features in that table.

Also, there is no equivalent in the attribute table window of the "Show features in current canvas" option, so I guess that would need to be implemented at the same time.

I guess alternatively if "Show selected features" is set in the options then "Show selected only" could be selected and disabled (grayed out) in the Attribute table window.

Hello, bug triage...

in QGIS 2.13 master (and probably in 2.12.1), the Attribute table behavior setting only affects the default state of the attribute table: you can override any option directly in attribute table.
"Show Features visible on map" is now in QGIS settings and in the attribute table.

I am closing this feature request because every point of it has been implemented in QGIS.

Interesting. If in QGIS settings I select "show visible features", in the attribute table I have the option "Show all features in initial canvas extent", instead of the option "show all features".
