SourceTree Diff view reloading randomly?



I keep experiencing the diff view of a selected file in SourceTree for Mac reloading, even if the file isn't changing. (I've saved a file, go to SourceTree, select the file, the diff shows, then after a few seconds reloads). Any idea what's going on? It's rather annoying to be reviewing a diff and then having that diff reload (and scrolling to the top), and I can't seem to be able to figure out when or why it happens.

Hi Erwin! Can you provide some more information so we can try to reproduce this issue?:

  1. Which version of SourceTree and Mac are you using?
  2. Does this happen with all commit/ repos or only specific ones?
  3. Which diff tool are you using?


Hi Ana!

Sure; thanks for picking up on this! I'm on SourceTree Version 2.4.1 (97), Mac OS 10.12.6. I have not noticed this not happen on any specific repos, though I can't be 100% sure. Re. diff tool: FileMerge (which I believe is the default).

This was fixed in 2.5. The latest compatible release for macOS 10.12.6 is SourceTree 2.6.1. Please check for updates and let us know if that's not offered to you.

Crap, you're right Brian, hadn't noticed auto-update was deselected. Apologies for wasting your time! Loving the new theme btw :-)

We're glad you like it and happy this is fixed for you now :D Thanks for your feedback!

Hi Ana,


Unfortunately, the issue I'm experiencing has not been resolved; I'm now on 2.6.1, but the random reloading while scrolling still occurs...
