I have recently updated SourceTree to 3.0.6 and detected some strange behaviour occurs while minimizing the app.
Application is always started normally but if I minimize the app window, it is not possible to get it back. Then I am forced to close the app from taskbar or Task Manager and start it again.
I'm currently running Windows 10 Enterprise. Colleagues who updated SourceTree to 3.0.6. are experiencing the same problem.
Yes. I have the latest version, 3.1.12, hoping the issue would be fixed. It is not. I was going to propose this be our front end for GIT for my company, but with this issue I must seek other solutions... On top of this it does not support versioning of a single file or blame. Those are core features for a modern VCS. Hope you get this issue fixed quick because I still like the front end...
Tools>Option>General>Repository settings> Refresh when application is not in focus.
The bug is related to the repository window not being refreshed in the background, This puts the application in a busy state by clicking the task-bar and prevents the window from refocusing in a timely manner. The above solution seems to be working.
@Matt Butler Regrettably it is not a full proof solution, something is still a little odd while clicking the show desktop button ( minimize all open windows ) on the task bar. Which causes all open application windows to loose focus. If you click the source tree app icon immediately after this, you will receive the 'beep' sound the first time you click and only on the second attempt at clicking, will it then focus the source tree app. A work around for this is to click on another open app's task bar icon first and then proceed with clicking the source tree app icon. This way you can avoid the beep, which, TBQH, is really irking me.
Also running into this same behavior on Version 3.0.6-beta-2193. Once SourceTree is minimized, clicking its taskbar button results in an audible Windows error ding and the application fails to be restored.
An annoying workaround exists though. I can press Alt-Space (assuming the SourceTree taskbar button has focus) to bring up the system context menu and choose Restore. I was previously closing and reopening and this saves a few moments but is still tedious
Same here with SourceTree v3.0.8 on Windows 10 Home 1809 17763.55.
Fast clicking also restores a stuck window, (after a lot of dinging sounds), so thanks to whoever figured that out!
One additional observation...
If I minimize by clicking the taskbar icon instead of the minimizer on the window then it restores without a problem. I've tried with single monitor, dual monitor, with / without high DPI, taskbars in default / custom positions, all with the same result.
Same here. SourceTree 3.0.8 on Windows 10 version 1803 build 17134.345.
Clicking fast and alt-space restore work. I get the bell sound when clicking the taskbar icon too.
Interresting thing I found: When pressing Win+Tab, and then selecting the SourceTree window, will show the SourceTree window on the desktop for a fraction of a second but it will hide itself immediately with the bell sound. Seems like something sets the window state back to hidden when it should not.
Just to add some information to this bug you can't restore it using the menu that shows up when you right click on the preview (on the task bar icon). Although this menu looks the same as the one triggered by ALT+SPACE (which does work) it won't work as it throws the same error beep.
Same problem with 3.0.5, 3.0.6 and 3.0.8 (windows 10 in all my pc)
I cannot win+tab, alt+tab, click taskbar icon, focus+click of the taskbar preview, focus from task manager.. nothing.
Sometime Sourcetree appears if i click quickly so many times the taskbar icon.
