Minimize/Restore doesn't work properly

After updating to the latest version of Sourcetree (v3.0.6), whenever I minimize the window to the taskbar, it wont restore back anymore.  I end up having to right-click Sourcetree on the taskbar and select the "Close window" option and then re-launch Sourcetree.

Is anyone experiencing the same issue?

Same on my site.

But : Task Manager is able to switch / bring to front the source tree window

At least the switch to works, but it's still very frustrating

I encounter the same problem and I have to use the "switch to" from task manager to make it work. PITA.

From below: Go to Tools>Option>General>Repository settings> Refresh when application is not in focus -> Enable it -> [OK]

Anyone subscribed to this issue, here is a workaround from the thread Wendt linked to:

Thanks! It works.

Same here.

Related note: Software quality of Atlassian's Sourcetree is really poor. Basic functionality is constantly broken. Last year we has sourcetree constantly reinstalling at launch and the code-diffs horizontal scroll bar being buggy. Now something as basic as minimize and restore? Code reviews? Quality engineers? Automated tests?

This quality makes me nervous as we trust Atlassian's software suite (bitbucket, jira, sourcetree etc etc) when building our own software products.

Please introspect and improve quality.

Yes, same.

It flashes and then disappears

I'm submitting a bug report now.

However, I've found that it's only a problem if the SourceTree Window is maximized (or close to maximized - probably above some width x height threshold). If the window is smaller than that, things work fine.

I happen to be on a 1920 x 1080 screen and if I get wider than about 1800 pixels: bingo, I have a problem.

Same here; has anyone submitted a bug report for it?
