Is there a way to permanently disable smart quotes and smart dashes in the commit window? Some of our deploys fail because git complains about the unicode characters.
When I right-click and uncheck Substitutions > Smart Quotes and Substitutions > Smart Dashes it does not remember the setting.
It would be ideal to be able to turn off all spelling "correction" and any other text substitions in this window.
I'm on OS 10.9 and Sourcetree 126.96.36.199.
I'm experiencing the same issue with OSX 10.8.5 and Sourcetree 188.8.131.52.
I've resorted to using the command line for my recent usage of git, as I cannot seem to turn off text substitutions permanently for SourceTree, even though I've turned them off system wide.
The text substitution settings reset as soon as I hit the "commit" button again.
Same over here! This is *reall* annoying. For now I partially worked around this by changing the system wide "smart dash" settings to use the regular " and ' (so nothing happens), but this is only partially solving the problems, as it still converts -- to a dash.
I really hope the SourceTree team will fix this soon.
I had to turn off the setting site wide in order to prevent sourcetree from replacing quotes and dashes in the commit dialog. Ideally it could be disabled just for sourcetree, but this works for me for now.
Go to System Prefs > Keyboard
Choose the Text tab.
Uncheck "Use smart quotes and dashes"
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
