SourceTree totaly sucks

Each update of SourceTree breaks something. SourceTree cannot save password properly for github for Windows and Mac clients. It is real pain to use Source Tree.

Hi Denis! I'm sorry to hear that. Can you elaborate a bit more? We'll be happy to help you with your issue:

  1. Are you experiencing the same behaviour on both platforms (Windows and Mac)?
  2. Which Sourcetree version are you using?
  3. How are you trying to save your credentials? Are you following the instructions at Connect your account?
  4. Do you get any error message? Can you send us a screenshot of the error you get?

Best regards!

Kind regards,AD

its is so intimidatingly annoying due to frequent crash and slowing down the machine if repository is large. not cool.
