I just upgraded to 2.0 and noticed the bookmarks sidebar is gone. For me, this is NOT an improvement, for the following reasons:
Please bring back the bookmarks sidebar as an option.
+1. The current way of displaying bookmarks makes sourcetree completely unusable for my scenario. I work with dozens of different repositories that have similar prefix in their name, and I have to hover over the tabs to see which ones they actually are (Besides having to scroll the list due to screen not being able to fit all of them at once). Not to mention it was very convenient being able to see repository status on the list as well.
+1. Please bring back the bookmark sidebar. I have several sources repos that I am responsible for and it's nice to know quickly what changes have and haven't been checked in.
+1 from me too.
It was very useful.
I have very bad memory and I'm hopping between many things, when I come back to coding (more like learning it), checking bookmarks folder tree of SourceTree was the first thing I do.
I had many folders for Unity and other projects, and under those folders multiple similar projects grouped in one place. This way it was easy to click folder open, then click through projects in a folder, and see where I left the projects weeks ago...
And what is more annoying, the "Local repositories" tab that opens by pressing "+" in tab bar, is horribly formatted. Huge gaps between items, lost space - I'd rather see windows explorer like compact "directory listing" instead of this. Make an option for spacing of lines at minimum.
And bring back the bookmarks window.
I totally agree. Without the sidebar it is now very difficult for me to be able to see an overview of all of my repositories and to navigate efficiently. The new way of selecting from local repositories is very inefficient and ugly.
Please bring it back as soon as possible.
At risk of being a "Me too" person, I completely agree with the above. I have no way of seeing which branches have changes or not, the bookmarks sidebar worked really well. Please bring it back.
I have 30+ years of experience in software development and it took me 20 minutes to work out how to rename a repository tab. Thanks to this post. And no thanks to the current design.
Why in the world would they remove it. It was so easy to see which repositories have updates without having to go into each one. I don't see a way to do that with this new version.
Is there an easy way to downgrade back to the older version?
Yes! Upgrade to 1.9 to get back this necessary feature:
Hey Lewis, did it let you downgrade without any issues? I am on version 126.96.36.199.
Hi, I installed 188.8.131.52 besides 2.5.5.x and it worked. Currently using 184.108.40.206 and the left bar is great.
Yeah I think the only reason software companies set up these forums is so we can answer each others' questions and they don't have to bother. Atlassian certainly isn't the only one.
agree! working with many repos is very uncomfortable/impossible without the bookmarks sidebar
As long as the bookmarks sidebar doesn't come back I'll stay with 1.9x (aka +1).
switching between local repos, and keeping an overview at a glance, was much easier with the bookmarks sidebar.
This kind of efficiency loss adds up over time--would really love to see this added back to the next version!
Please bring back the bookmark side bar. Our team lost efficiency because we have to work with 20-30 repositories. Having all repositories in a side bar was more efficient.
I found an open issue for this on Atlassian's Jira board if anyone else wants to vote for it https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/SRCTREEWIN-7176 There are a few duplicate issues, but that one has the most votes so far.
There are also some promising suggestions for workarounds and alternatives in the comments for that issue.
I'm staying on 1.9 as well. That bookmarks bar was good UX, whereas the new solution lacks overview.
Bookmarks sidebar is back in Sourcetree 3.1. :)
Thanks for listening!
(Small request: horizontally resizeable, so we could make it a bit less wide...)
