Dock bookmarks in OSX

I'm used to using SourceTree in Windows, where the bookmarks pane is docked on the left hand side of the SourceTree window. This makes it a single click to switch repos, which is really handy. I've recently started using it in OSX, and the bookmarks seems only to be available as a pop-up window, or through the Window menu, making it more difficult to get at and less obvious at a glance to see which repository I'm currently looking at and which repositories I've previously bookmarked. Is it possible to dock the bookmarks in OSX in the same way they are docked in Windows?

I same came from the SourceTree windows version. The docked bookmark is very convenient and useful if you are working on large projects. You can easily maneuver over different project by clicking the tabs, just like nowadays browsers. I don't know why the iOS version SourceTree do not have dockable bookmark. Also, creating a new SourceTree window for every single project in the iOS version seems 2008 to me. It would be really great if they could make a dockable bookmark in the later versions. Many thanks.

+1 on this issue.  I would really like to have the my bookmarks on the left hand side of the window.  The windows app is much more convenient because of that feature.  Any plans to bring that feature to OSX?

Couldn't agree more. We need a dockable repo browser in Mac.

+1 on this also.  I really like that feature on the PC version.

It'd be really useful to be able to switch repos in a single window. I often need to look through several git repositories, as I tend to have one module per repository, and many modules in an application. Having to cmd+` through loads of windows slows me down quite a lot.

I'm finding this increasingly a problem.  We're using micro-services and are now looking at upwards of 40 repos, I expect we'll be at over 100 within six months.  OSX doesn't have a good way of managing that many open windows, so I have to keep closing them.

+1 for this - please see if you can add this to the next release. Would make everything so much neater    ;o)

+1 for this. Why is Atlassiian ignoring this? >> I added a feature request: SRCTREE-3311

Multiple windows would be my number one complaint about SourceTree. Are there any plans for this? I've found a few related tickets:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/SRCTREE-1234

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/SRCTREE-380

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/SRCTREE-2036

+1 for this, and +1 for this: https://www.tickspot.com/images/marketing/extras_mac_app@2x.png Would be great to access like tick, so I don't need to keep finding it in multi monitors where is it. Much quicker access...
