Can repository browser show the repo path by default?

I am using SourceTree 2.0.5.2 on OS X and am wondering if there is any way for the Repository Browser to show the full path of the local repository by default? Basically some neat way of showing the Quicklook info in the regular listing. My workflow generally has numerous copies of the same repo so I can collect needed repos for certain issues so I have a structure like:

~/projects/Bug1234/reponame1

~/projects/Bug1234/reponame2

~/projects/Bug1234/reponame3

 

~/projects/Bug456/reponame1

~/projects/Bug456/reponame2

~/projects/Bug1456/reponame3

 

If I were to add these repo's to Repository Browser it would just show up like

 

reponame1

reponame2

reponame3

reponame1

reponame2

reponame3

 

And to figure out which repo is with which bug I have to quicklook them so generally I am clearing out the RB between working on stuff. I imagine there's a better way to organize this all but this sounds like it would be a cool optional setting to have if it does not exist yet.

What do you mean by the repository browser? In Windows, the Bookmaks panel shows both the repo name and the path to the repo.

How do you even get to the bookmarks panel in Windows? I can't find it.

Sorry I should have mentioned this was OS X. The repository browser is described here: https://blog.sourcetreeapp.com/2014/09/25/sourcetree-for-mac-2-0-released/

Ok, yeah, I don't see paths in those screenshots. I don't suppose there is a tooltip that comes up if you hover over a local repo that has the path? If not, submit a feature request to jira.atlassian.com and post a link here as an answer.

@Tim Crall I've heard some users report the bookmarks panel getting mysteriously minimized. If this has happened to you, you should be able to restore it by finding a small area on the left edge of the window that can be dragged to the right. This might be easier to find if your window is maximized.

You can right click on one and do a Quicklook and the path pops up in there but it would be nice to not have to do that all the time. Created JIRA: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/SRCTREE-3011
