New branch apears as chain rather than fork




We are currently evaluating different git GUI clients for use in our studio.  And there is one part of the UX that keeps tripping the team up.


Currently if we create a branch from master, in the graph it appears as a chain.1.PNG

Only after a commit has been made to the original branch, will the new branch show as being forked.



I can understand why it is showing like a chain, however to many members of staff this is not intuitive at all. It showing as a chain, rather than forking as soon as a new branch causes users to struggle when reading the UI, to find a specific branch.


Is it possible to alter this behaviour in source tree, in some preferences or something?

If such an option is not possible, I would like to propose a suggestion to add that option, or at the very least change the colour of the node for the newly created branch:



It seems like this is something (new)users have been struggling with for over 5 years:


Thanks in advance,
