"Stage selected lines" disabled for new files, but no "intent-to-add" available by default?


I would like to stage only parts of a new file. "Stage selected lines" is disabled in right-click menu, but for a new file Stage Hunk == Stage File and it isn't what I want.

There's no "intent-to-add" command by default. Is "Custom Actions" the way to go here or what is the SourceTree-based process supposed to look like for this?

This widget could not be displayed.

You basically have to add the entire new file to the index first, then select the lines you *don't* want to be in the first commit of this file and click Unstage Selected Lines.

Thanks, I'll try this at next opportunity

This doesn't seem to work, at least as of SourceTree I can add an untracked file to the index, but even when I select specific lines from it, SourceTree only shows the button to allow me to un-stage the entire file.
