No, you can leave the log empty and hide it if required by clicking Log on the View menu.

Coding Pictures

You can code the entire picture source, a selected region of the picture or a log entry.  Click and drag the mouse to select a picture region, a portion of the text or selected rows in log entries. If you code a log entry, then the related region of the picture will be 'shadow' coded and vice versa.  

For more information, refer to Coding an Entire Source or Coding Picture Sources.
