SourceTree has suddenly started randomly collapsing sections (File Status, Branches, etc.) and repo folders automatically whenever it refreshes. It's not 100% of the time and it doesn't always collapse all of them; I'm having trouble figuring out the exact behaviour.
Not the end of the world but it makes even the most basic of operations slow and painful.
Is there an option for this I accidentally toggled on somehow? Can't seem to find any info on it.
I am getting RSI from this torture. No keyboard shortcuts to assist either. This, in addition to the inexplicibly stupid removal of the repo tree, is pretty much killing me. I have several hundred repos to keep on top of. Sourcetree used to be the GUI for managing them.
Now I am in hell. ALL of these new 'features' they are adding should be at least configurable so people who actually need to get work done get actually get some work done instead of marvelling at the latest 'minimalist' design.
No, I had not read that article. I personally have never felt that ST 1.x was in any way slow - possibly a side effect of buying decent hardware for my work.
IMO they would be better unifying the GUI under a common code-base - huge undertaking, I know. Personally I'd much rather they make this effort, and make things configurable, so that users have a choice. Choices! That thing separates the frustratingly limited tool from the power-users tool-of-choice. I would even much rather they commercialize the product - because it (was) previously so good at providing a balance between simplicity and complex overview.
I'd pay for ST - once they reverse some of the latest design decisons - and place effort into fixing apparent performance issues by other means (like porting to Java or something).
(I use JB products - their guis exhibit just as much or more complexity, and (for me) are flawlessly smooth.)
Same thing. Hampering productivity and currently evaluating other products such as GitKraken, SmartGit and Tower.
I don't know why Atlassian seems focused on disrupting people's work with constant changes to UI without options to use Classic UI or turn things on and off.
SourceTree 22.214.171.124 fixes this. Can be downloaded if you adjust the download link from the homepage. Use at your own risk, I'm not sure if it is supposed to have been released.
For your convenience here's the official download link to the "old" version: https://downloads.atlassian.com/software/sourcetree/windows/ga/SourceTreeSetup-126.96.36.199.exe
