Sourcetree 2.3.5: Is there a simple way to show the full path location of the repository of my tab?

In version 2.0+ the bookmarks have been moved to tabs and the bookmarks overview to the new + tab. But I have bookmarks with the same name that are actually in a different file location. It would be nice if I could hover over the tab name and it shows the full path of the (local) repository or that the +tab shows the full path names of the local repositories as well.

Or do I miss something and is there a better way then right-click the bookmark and choose "Show in explorer", copy paste the path and rename the bookmark to the fullpath?

There isn't at the moment, but that you for the suggestion. You can raise enhancement/new feature requests at

Thanks Michael, yes I copy pasted the question in JIRA.

  1. Actually the + tab is very buggy. After I rename a bookmark via right click "Rename" to the full path, the selection of the bookmark is not cleared, so when I select another repository I have two blue selections. That is probably the reason why "Show In Explorer" keeps being grey after that moment. The workaround is to close the +tab and reopen it again (although sometimes I need to do that a few times after each other).
  2. Newly added repositories via file->open are not present on the +tab, also not after close and reopen the plus tab. Workaround is to drag them on the page instead.
  3. sometimes the rename option is grey as well (not sure, I believe I ran into this as well)

  4.  Why is the "Remove bookmark from folder" option always grey?

  5. The delete dialog box that pops-up after I right-click and select "Delete" is different when there is a refresh icon behind the repository name, in that case I can only delete the repository and there is no "Remove Bookmarks" button on the pop-up dialog.
