Ignored File does not appear in .gitignore.

Hi there- I've right-clicked on a particular file in sourcetree and set it to 'ignore', and I'd like to revert that, but the file doesn't show up in my .gitignore file either.  Any idea what might be happening here?

Hi Morgan, welcome to the Community.

Most likely, the file got added to global .gitignore and not the local .gitignore.

When you choose to ignore a file that is modified etc, SourceTree should bring up a dialogue where you can choose either of them. Can you check the global .gitignore file and see if it's there?

To remove a file that you have added by accident, navigate to Sourcetree > Preferences > Git menu option. 

Hope that helps! Let us know if you have any questions,


Hey there Ana-  Thanks for the tip!  I must have selected the global option by mistake and got confused.  I found the global .gitignore in my home directory and editing that did the trick.

Cheers, Morgan
