Commit button does nothing in SourceTree

Hi,

I have a problem where pushing the "Commit" button does not bring up the new commit dialog. This happens in both 1.3.0 (App Store) and 1.3.1.1 (Downloaded). I've also reinstalled and redownloaded the application.

Mac OS X 10.7.2.

Thanks.

Wow, that's an odd one. Is there any information in Console.app (searching for SourceTree should filter it down)?

Resetting your preferences by renaming / deleting ~/Library/Preferences/com.torusknot.SourceTree.plist and ~/Library/Preferences/com.torusknot.SourceTreeNotMAS.plist might resolve it but I'd quite like to know the underlying cause.

Here's some info from Console.app (SourceTree 1.3.0 from App Store).

Open SourceTree...

No dialog displays. Other dialogs seem to work (Pull, Fetch, Branch)

Have you used the direct version from the website at some point then gone to the App Store version? Unfortunately Apple haven't approved the 1.3.1 update yet and there were some fixes to Custom Actions keyboard shortcuts, which could cause data problems if you go backwards in version to 1.3.0 afterwards. The message certainly indicates a problem with that.

You should be able to resolve this by using the direct download version from the website.

Ok. Trashed 1.3.0 and downloaded and installed 1.3.1.1.

Seems to be the same thing. I have no idea what I did. I did make a custom action to open a commit on GitHub and bound it to Shift-Apple-H, so definitely could be a data problem.

Yeah, definitely a problem with the shortcut key associated with a custom action. I did fix a problem with some blank keyboard shortcuts in 1.3.1 so I thought that would fix it. Can you get into Preferences > Custom Actions and delete that item to see if that fixes it? You should be able to re-create it, I wonder if it's something to do with version switching.

If you can't delete it in the interface, you can reset the custom actions by deleting the file ~/Library/Application Support/SourceTree/actions.plist.

Removing just the assigned shortcut key didn't work, but deleting all custom actions (I had another one to open the file in Sublime Text) did fix the problem immediately. A restart of SourceTree was not needed.

However, if I add a new custom action, the Commit dialog does not appear. If I give the Custom Action a shortcut key, it does work. Restarting the app does not change this behavior.

I'm putting some extra checks in there anyway to protect against it, the bugfix in 1.3.1 should have prevented the problem from ever occurring (and it seems to here), but I'll put an extra belt & braces check in just before this call in case a nil keycode somehow sneaks in from somewhere.

Hmm, and this is definitely with 1.3.1[.1]? This is precisely the bug that was fixed with custom actions in 1.3.1+, and I can't re-create it here.

I'm having this problem with version 1.9.1 (for the Mac).

I have never defined any custom actions, and I have none defined now.

What is your advice?
