As of yesterday, I am unable to click the commit button on source tree after I have left my comment and checked off the files I would like to commit. I am on Version 1.8.3. Has something changed or did I need to upgrade?
I had this problem too. It turned out that my lower-right area is not clickable for any app.
I used process explorer and dragged the "find window's process" thing to that area and it highlighted slack.exe.
I killed all the slack instances and the problem went away, even when I restarted slack.
I'll notify slack.
I ran into this issue today for the first time on windows version 18.104.22.168. I tried closing SourceTree, switching tabs, re-staging files, nothing worked.
I ended up resizing the window and the button started working right away.
I checked out WebStorm and had the same issue. I couldn't close a notification window that was up.
So, then I tried file explorer at maximum size. Couldn't press any buttons that were in the bottom right corner of the screen. That means, at least in my case, this isn't a SourceTree, nor Atlassian specific issue.
There must be some notification in Windows that it thinks it's displaying and therefore disabling input at that specific spot on the screen.
Same for me. I can't click the commit button at the moment on my primary monitor when source tree is full screen. If I make it smaller, or move it to full screen on my secondary monitor, it works fine.
Also confirmed that it affects other programs too, so it's Windows, not a SourceTree issue (in my case anyway).
A potential easy solution: try clicking slower.
On my (Windows) machine clicking the "Commit" button with a normal mouse-click works maybe 25% of the time. But when I click and hold the mouse button--even for just a quarter of a second--before releasing, the "Commit" button works 100% of the time.
Does this work for anyone else?
I had the same problem but I think it was my error because I had to select the files I wanted to commit and click first on "Stage selected" (or press "Stage all"). Then the files with changes were ready to commit and button appeared enabled.
In mac I don't need to do this step.
I am still having this issue on 22.214.171.124 and it has been this way since I upgraded from 1.5.2 about a year ago. The only thing that seems to fix it is closing sourcetree waiting for a couple of minutes and then reopening it and then typing in your commit message again. Then it works properly for awhile. Another thing I have noticed when I have this issue. I can click on commit multiple times and it doesn't work, but then I hit the enter key (not the numpad side enter key, the main one) and then it commits sometimes even though clicking the button didn't work.
Side Note (maybe related): Sometimes when I go to open a repo I have. I cannot open the repo and the open is greyed out. Then I do the close sourcetree/ wait 2 minutes / reopen and I can open the repo then. It might be something do with one of the file watching threads getting stuck in the background for that specific repo and locking up the tab if the tabs are all on separate threads, which they seem to be. Just my two cents.. Hopefully this gets fixed soon though. I am about to go back to 1.5.2 because the newer version has a bunch of issues.. especially with it noticing the working copy changes. Sometimes I have to wait for like 5 minutes or close and reopen just for it to see the working copy changes :/ but of course that could go into a trouble ticket also. 1.5.2 was awesome btw.. best version ever :]
I moved on to a different tool awhile back. Every now an then I confirm it's still broken, because I do like SourceTree on the Mac.
It's hard to believe that the primary functionality of the Windows version of this product has remained broken for over 4 months now.
I suppose very few developers use Windows + SourceTree.
