SourceTree hangs periodically for me. Sometimes when pushing to remote. Sometimes when committing local. Sometimes when staging files for commit. Once it even hung when I was clicking on a file to see a diff. It is an indefinite hang and requires a force-quit.
I am more and more troubled, worried that it's going to screw up my local or remote repo. Anyone else seeing this?
I have some information about this issue that I would really like to provide, including a hang report. However I can't get to this JIRA issue when I'm logged in, and I can't comment on it when I'm logged out. (I get "An error occurred while attempting to fulfill your request." when logged in.)
That in itself seems to be an unresolved problem?
I'm not sure how to open a bug for being unable to open (or edit) a bug, so I'm at a loss for where to comment about the SourceTree hang.
This happened very for me as well but I just realized the last time was because I had done an External Diff! On repeated retries I see the pattern:
I suggest looking to see if you have an instance of FileMerge open, or maybe some other diff tool. If so, CMD-Q it and see if that ends the hang. That was my problem. The hang doesn't happen right away but once I do a diff, if I come back to SourceTree it's always blocked until I kill the diff application (closing the diff window isn't sufficient).
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
