How to automatically stage files.

A version ago the files that changed were staged automatically.  This is not so any more.

I also cannot find the checkbox next to "Unstaged files" mentioned for earlier versions.

Please assist me to autostage files.

Hi! In SourceTree for Windows, files were not staged automatically, it was always a manual process. Maybe you are confused between the 'No Staging view' and the 'Split view' (where you can drag & drop files)? If you're in the current Windows version, you can use Shift+Ctrl+C to stage all unstaged files at once, is that the option you were looking for?

Regarding the checkboxes, there's a feature request to bring them back and you can find it at SRCTREEWIN-7260. You can vote for it, add a comment or watch it to receive further updates.

Hope this helps :)

I have a reverse problem. Every time I open a commit window, all the files are staged automatically and that's a big NO, because even conflicted files are staged and there's no way to resolve them using external app. How can I turn this off? This happens with v. 2.1.2.5 Win10 x64
