SourceTree Windows. Track Remote Branch, Options Disabled

Hi Just upgraded to for Windows, 

When I right click on a  Local Branch,  and choose -> "Track remote branch", all the options are disabled. for example, I cannot choose the "(None)" option at the bottom of the list.  This has always worked in previous versions of SourceTree , ie was able to choose a different branch to track.

Just some more info, the Local Branch is tracking the Remote Master Branch

I'm also having this problem.

i'm also having the same issue...

Is someone working on this (or even listening)?


me too.

Just posted a very similar question at before I came across this one. Any news? I have the same problem with ST version on Windows 10.

On version if it helps. What i've done was to go to pull button and in the popup window i've selected the remote branch i wished to track. In my case was master.

Wow - just found something that helps ...

I was able to manually add tracking info to my local branch and it seemed to heal the issue with ST (all the grayed out menu went active) ...

git branch -u <remote origin name>/<full branch name> <local branchname>

ex: (I use "Gerrit" for my origin name for my Gerrit Remote; "proto10" is my local branch name for a spot on my remote.)

git branch -u Gerrit/Dev/Proj1/SpecialGroup/proto10   proto10

When I go to ST and look at the tracking menu (right mouse on proto10 branch name), the tracking menu is alive again ... can even change to a new spot) ...

Unfortunately, does not fix other branches ...
