Repository browser shortcut key collision

How come Atlassian changed the repository browser shortcut key from cmd-B to cmd-O that collides with Open in latest version? This does not make any sense.

Any solution to fix this annoying issue?

It's cmd+{zero} not cmd+O

I came hear wondering if I was going crazy when cmd+B didn't work. Then I wondered if it ever worked, or I was having a stroke. I'm glad to see others are having the same problem.

Who would've thought...0 vs O

Thanks so much for the post. I was missing that shortcut. 

Guys, this is real dumb and Atlassian doesn't seem to care/fix it so I'm posting an answer to my own question with a relatively simple fix for this:

Go to your Mac system preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts and add

"Show Repository Browser", press "cmd-B". Close. Done. Enjoy.

Thanks, but it doesn't seem to work.  After creating the shortcut and restarting SourceTree, the shortcut doesn't work.

+1 I came here with the same question. They removed the cmd+B option and cmd+O is overridden by Open

+100 clicking the menu link is bad UX. Please fix!

I posted a solution

Please fix this!

I've commented on the constraints around this shortcut in the primary ticket about this. As always, constructive input based on that is welcome.
