SourceTree is very slow to detect changes in local repositories

I'm using SourceTree 3.2.1 (225) on macOS 10.14.5.

I'm finding that SourceTree is very slow to detect changes (e.g., files that have been edited then saved) in my local repositories. It can take minutes, and I have to flip between modified/pending file views to try to 'kick' it.

I'd expect changes to be recognised immediately by SourceTree.

Any ideas? Any setting I'm missing?

Hi @psychlist,

There is the "Refresh automatically when files change" checkbox in General preferences. If that's enabled and you are still not seeing the files you can hit Cmd+R to refresh which is easier than switching filters. With all that said, we are aware the tricky to balance area of file watching can be improved.

Thanks for responding, Brian. I do have 'Refresh Automatically' enabled, but I didn't know about Cmd-R to refresh: I'll try that.
