In some previous version I found the use of folders pretty neat. I have quite a few companies I work for, and each has several repo's, so ordering them in folders comes in very handy.
I the most recent versions, however, I can't find a proper way to manage these folders and the repositories in them. Currently I manually edit the bookmarks.xml file, but that can't be the way it's supposed to work, right?
Tips are very welcome...
Hi @Stefan Kamphuis,
That's definitely not how it's supposed to work. A few questions:
1. What version of Sourcetree are you using? On what platform?
2. What are you unable to do in the UI that requires editing the XML file?

Hi @bgannin ,
Thanks for replying.
1. Version 3.1.3 (upgraded to latest before I posted, to make sure the issue was still there)
2. Some repo's got unintendedly removed from their folders. So I wanted to drag those bag into their folder. I can see the "drop line" when I drag a repo, but nothing happens when I drop it. Also, since my list of repo's got a little long, I can't get the drop line into the folder when they're too far apart. This is because the Local Repositories list doesn't scroll when I move the drop line.
I don't use nested folders, btw, so only single folders with git repo's in them. Git is a mixture of BitBucket, Github, and self-hosted Bonobo)
I hope this makes sense, if not, I can send you a private message with a video to explain things better.
I think that's what I'm trying, though. In this screenshot I am dragging the selected repository. If I drop it where the drag line now is, nothing happens. If I drag it further up, the whole list turns gray, but no scrolling. (2nd screenshot).
Do you think I'm just not getting it? No worries if that's the case, I can handle that :-)
