By default, Sourcetree has populated the user information (under Repository Settings > Advanced > User Information) with the name and email address associated with the Atlassian account I used to register Sourcetree. However, I wish to override these with the global user settings (as shown under Options > General > Default user information).
Conveniently, there is a checkbox ("Use global user settings") for this. However, this checkbox does not seem to have any effect: after checking the checkbox, selecting "OK", and re-opening the Repository Settings window shows the box unchecked.
Is this is a known bug? Is there an established workaround? Am I not understanding how checkboxes work?
Edit: Furthermore, altering the Full Name and Email address fields directly doesn't work. Any values entered under "User Information" appear to be immediately reverted after clicking "OK".
For reference, this is with Sourcetree for Windows version 22.214.171.124, on Win7.
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 ...
