Initial Visibility

At the top of ' and other files is a line like this:

#+STARTUP: showall

This sets initial visibility. See also Summary of in-buffer settings.

The STARTUP line is placed at the top so that it will remain behind when sprints are moved from ' to '

When using ', it is convenient to widen and end-of-buffer to continue appending to the chronological log. Therefore in-buffer settings are placed at the top of the file, not the bottom.
