On one of my machines, I have somehow hidden the panel which shows commit information, such as the commit hash and the full commit message. Here is the appearance with the commit panel, below the list of files:Screen Shot 2015-04-27 at 9.17.15 AM.png
And here is the appearance without the commit panel:

I'm sure it's just a setting somewhere to bring the commit panel back, but I can't find it. Can anyone help me out?
Thank You! I fixed this issue by replicating what this command does. I edited the plist file "~/Library/Preferences/com.torusknot.SourceTreeNotMAS.plist" manually and deleted the entry for "repowindow_LogViewDescSplitter".
On the Mac, I went to the Finder, opened the "Go" menu and selected "Go to Folder...". I pasted in the path to the file and it navigated right to the file. I double clicked on the file and it opened in Xcode where I could delete the entry.
If you want to save your settings, are familiar with the OS X plist format, and are willing to get your hands a little dirty, use a text editor on ~/Library/Preferences/com.torusknot.SourceTreeNotMAS.plist and delete all the key pairs whose key starts with "NSSplitView Subview Frames". There are around 25 of them all in a row. They look like this:
<key>NSSplitView Subview Frames SearchViewDescSplitter</key>
<string>0.000000, 0.000000, 1101.000000, 309.000000, NO, NO</string>
<string>0.000000, 310.000000, 1101.000000, 423.000000, NO, NO</string>
I'm also getting this now.. anyone know how to show the commit info panel?!?! Soon as this occurred those two little loader animations (sort of cut off below) started displaying like that...
EDIT: Just got it back!! Started frantically clicking/dragging out to the right, from that top loader animation (sort of cut off in the screenshot) and viola the commit info panel came back. Oddly enough, now commit author photos no longer display.. the question mark icon displays where the author photo used to display. (shrug)
See if there is an area at the bottom of the file list pane that you can drag upward.
Some other panels in SourceTree have had problems in the past with being able to be resized to zero width/height, and users have trouble finding how to re-expend, but it's typically just a matter of finding the right drag anchor along the edge of where the panel should be.
Full disclosure, I use SourceTree on Windows, which places the commit panel ABOVE the file list, and does NOT allow it to be collapsed to zero height.
I'm afraid I don't remember my solution, whether it was something clever or just deleting and reinstalling SourceTree. It might have been the latter. (Which isn't actually as big a pain as it sounds, since it doesn't trash your repos themselves - you just have to re-add them to SourceTree.) Good luck!
This repeatedly happens to me, and there is a less-invasive fix (at least on the Mac version) than nuking the settings.
Put the mouse at the left edge of where the commit info panel should be. It's tricky because the sidebar resize splitter is in that spot too, so you will see a left-right-drag-cursor (like <-|->). But slowly move the mouse there and you will see a right-only drag cursor ( |-> ). That cursor will let you drag to resize the panel back into visibility.
It's hard to do because it is a difference of 1 pixel. Also this may not work on small monitors .
Sadly this bug is still present in 2.4.
Just in case you edit the plist in some text editor and SourceTree kicks you to login. The plist file is in binary form and saving after editing (like in TextMate) will actually corrupt the plist format in many text editors.
The plist file should be edited in a plist editor, like Xcode.
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 ...
