SourceTree: suppressConflictWarnings fix on a Mac


Hi -

I'm using SourceTree 3.2.1. I must have inadvertently clicked to suppress merge conflicts on a Mac because they're not showing up anymore. I found the answer to update the user.config in the AppData folder ( on Windows but in my Mac I check here:


There's no user config, only my cert, browser.plist, hgrc_sourcetree, ImageCache folder and openWindowList. None of which appear to have this property.

Where should I be looking to show the merge conflicts again. Any tips are greatly appreciated.

Hi @Matt Ganz,

Run the following command in Terminal:

defaults remove com.TorusKnot.SourcetreeNotMAS suppressConflictsWarning 

and then launch the app. That removes the preference value entirely, restoring you to the default (no pun intended.)

Principal Developer, Sourcetree

Where do I have to be? Whether I run this command from my home directory or Library/Preferences (where the com.TorusKnot.SourcetreeNotMAS is located) I get the following error: 


Domain (com.TorusKnot.SourcetreeNotMAS) not found.
Defaults have not been changed.

Are you sure it's not defaults delete....instead of remove? This deletes the domain. Or even this: 

defaults write com.torusknot.SourceTreeNotMAS suppressConflictsWarning 0

That also works :)
