Debug tool window setting: All / Auto Variables Mode

In the Debug tool window settings, what exactly is the difference between "All-Variables Mode" & "Auto-Variables Mode"?

Also, when the Debug tool window settings menu shows "All-Variables Mode", does that mean that "All-Variables Mode" is enabled, or that, by clicking on it, you switch to "All-Variables Mode"?

e.g., "Stop watching method return values" means that you currently are watching method return values, and that, by clicking on it, you will no longer watch method return values.

Thanks for letting me know about the cleanup of the menu text.

I still, however, don't know what the difference is between All-Variables Mode & Auto-Variables mode.

Can you, or someone else, describe the difference?

Auto-Variables Mode shows only variables used near the execution point.
