Is there any way to discard *all* whitespace-only changes at one time?

I like having my editor trim trailing whitespace upon a save; it works great to keep a new file clean. But, it's a problem when I need to make a small change in a file that a junior engineer wrote as there may now be 20 lines "changed" rather than the one in question.

At times like this, I've been discarding the individual sections where the change is whitespace-only, but wondering if there's a way to discard all whitespace-only changes at one time.

I'm open to alternative suggestions as well.

Thanks.

Hi

Its not something we support inside Sourcetree, but does this do what you want?

It's not perfect, but I definitely think it will work. Thanks!
