A month ago I checked out the files I need from the repository. Someone else has made changes since then. I want to work with the latest files. How do I get them? Your GUI is far from intuitive and your help is not helping. I am using SourceTree with Bitbucket.
The UI is intuitive enough IF you have a working understanding of Git/Mercurial. It is not intended to be an "it just works" versioning tool.
If you are using Git, the Git book is a great resource. Read sections 1.1 through 1.3, and all of chapters 2 and 3. After doing so once, you should understand what 80% of the interface is supposed to do (since terms like "Fetch", "Push", "Merge", and "remote" will all have been defined).
I am not an expert yet. Still learning but I use the Pull or Fetch buttons to update my local repository. I have found that if the repository is checked out to another machine then I can't check it out again. It seems that way to me.
Hope that is helpful,
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 ...
