How to ignore a file from the preview?

Hi,

First, thanks very much for the work on SourceTree, I'm using it for years and love it.

Now, I think lot of developers work with lock files (for example, every users of npm or Yarn have that package.lock file!) and these are literally crashing ST as I guess it tries to do a diff of them which slow down the app massively and makes it almost unusable.

Of course these files have to be tracked as it's their purpose. So I can't just .gitignore them.

Is it possible to tell to ST to not preview them?

 

Thanks!

Check out the Ignore File Patterns option in Diff settings. 

Hi Brian,

It's working fine thank you! However I noticed this filter is not applied on the stashes. So when you click on your stash, if it contains a big file, you're ending up with ST freezing as well.
