Missed error due to logcat scrolling in Android Studio

I had an activity crashing but could only briefly see the crash report scroll by in the Android Studio logcat before it was cleared and replaced by the restarted activity. Changing ‘Show only selected application’ to ‘Edit filter configuration’ did not work, despite trying several settings.

Solution finally found in stackoverflow. Clicking 3 times on a line in logcat is supposed to stop the scrolling but it only worked for me – as for the person commenting in stackoverflow – when ‘Show only selected application’ was changed to ‘No filters’.
