I created a new branch in SourceTree, committed my changes and then pushed to a remote.
My question is: why doesn’t the graph visually show the branch (diagonal line)? The new branch name does show under BRANCHES in left panel, but just not on the graph. The graph only shows a straight vertical line of nodes.
Here’s what I did:
1 - under BRANCHES on left, I double-clicked “master” to check out the latest and use as my current working source.
2 - edited files
3 - hit the Branch button in top menu bar
4 - hit commit and entered message about changes
5 - hit push
After all this, SourceTree told me I was “one ahead” and the Push button still had a red indicator that I needed to push. So, I pushed again, this time selecting “master” as the branch to push. Only then where my changes pushed to remote. Why didn’t selecting my new branch work?
If I’d successfully pushed onto my new branch, shouldn’t I visually see that new branch in the graph?
What did I need to do differently here to actually create and push on the new branch?
Where can I find documentation on the New Branch dialog (step 3 above)? For example, documentation on Working copy parent vs. pick (and what to pick)?
Thanks in advance!
