Sourcetree 2.3.2 on OSX - Where have my diffs gone?

Just updated to source tree 2.3.2 on OSX from some pretty old version. I won't complain about the new toned-down look, but I do complain about not being able to see my diffs.

I select a commit in the main browser. The commit message and such show up in the bottom-left pane. The filenames that are part of this commit are missing, however. In the bottom-right pane I see the diffs for one of the files that was modified in the commit. But: only for one file. Sometimes (for some commits) if I select "tree view" in the pulldown above the commit message I get a second file in the diff pane. Usually not, though.

What am I missing? How do I see the files that were changed in the commit? How do I see the diffs?

The panel should still be there, but it may have gotten collapsed for some reason. See if there is a small area to the left of the file diff that you can drag to the right.

Indeed, thanks! It wasn't a divider to the left of the file diff but a divider above the commit message.

Unbelievable, a UI with 1-pixel wide white divider lines on a white background:-(

Yeah, it's been a long-standing complaint that panels can be collapsed to 0 height/width with such a small divider to grab. If you searched jira.atlassian.com, you could probably find a bug report to vote up.
