cannot log file on folder .idea


I'm using sourcetree 2.7 (152) on MacOsX 10.13.2

When I use right click menu on a file and choose "Log Selected...", I usually have the full log and can easily see all changes.

But if the file is in the folder ".idea" (starting with a .), the I have the following message :

Potential security issue detected in the specified URL.

Sourcetree determined this URL is in an unsupported format.

Thanks for any correction !


Same problem for me need fix

Same for me. macOS, SourceTree version 2.7(152)

Just started seeing this issue when I upgraded to 2.7.1 (159)

Yup. Also version 2.7.1 (159) here. And I can't log selected ".ruby-version" file

For what it's worth, I simply downloaded the previous version from Atlassian's download archive. 2.6.3 is working fine for me.

Same, couldn't log .gitignore in 2.7.1(159)

Same here, macOS: 10.13.4 (17E199) Source Tree: 2.7.1 (159)

I want to add that the file I try to Log, contains the character `~`

I also have the same issue on Mac using Sourcetree 2.7.3. This is especially annoying working with Adobe Experience Manager .content files. 

same, Sourcetree 2.7.3 (169) , MacOS 10.13.6
