I've got a large file that happens to be stored in text (Adobe Illustrator), and every time I make even a tiny change the entire file gets previewed with green/red lines in SourceTree. It brings ST to a crawl for 20 seconds, while it goes line by line through the file for changes. I really don't need to see the file previewed at all, so is there any way to tell ST that I'm not interested in previewing or diffing the file? I would be happy to give up previewing on all files of type .ai if necessary.
This is on Mac, if it matters.
A bit of an old thread, but it was the top search result when I Googled, so I thought I just leave my solution here.
I too had an issue where SourceTree crawled to a snail pace when there was a big file in my changes. It's a file I want to commit, but don't need to review. Ignoring it would be the solution.
I couldn't find the "filter by file type" mentioned in the answer. But entering the exact name of the file in "Ignore File Patterns" worked (after restart). See screenshot.
I am using the Windows version 126.96.36.199. Is this still in there. Cannot find it.
I can find a filter to show only certain files in the unstaged/staged section.
But I would like to disable the preview of the diff on certain files (I am having compiled files which take about 5 seconds to show on the right (preview) panel). These I would like to hide.
