Sourcetree: Please re-add an icon in the toolbar for Hg flow / Git flow

With the new version, is it not possible to have an icon for Hg flow / Git flow. Please put it in again. I understand that not everyone use this, but at least it should be an optional icon.

1.8.2 has just been released, I've installed it on my machine and the icon is back.  No need for more +1s so install and get coding! smile

See this stack overflow question for download links:

We all can use Shift + Alt + f smile

Yep. That's true, and we (developers in our company) work like that. But sometimes we have some "non-poweruser" on Bitbucket. For example a designer. They use SourceTree very rare. For them it's important to have that icon.

this is great, thanks.

Git flow broken? Rel 1.8.1 Release or Hot fix name in Finish Release/Finish Hotfix dialog box wouldn't populate. Too bad the button on the toolbar is gone as well.

Same here Anil.  Have to uninstall the new version. 

Have the same sad

+1 would be even better to be able to add the different actions from within the git flow window as separate button using the icon bar customizer (Buttons for 'new feature', 'new release', etc.)

+1. This is a stupid, stupid change.

+1 Please re-add the GitFlow button back to SourceTree. I was surprised to not see it then shocked to realize it wasn't available at all.

+1 I can't believe they removed this button. I use it more than anything else in SourceTree. At least make it an option.

+1 Please put the GitFlow button back

+1 I love the product, but the button is handy 

+1, I also miss the View buttons (File Status, Log, Search)

+1 please restore the gitflow,hgflow button to the toolbar.

According to the bug tracker referenced by @Nic Brough [Adaptavist] this will be restored in the 2.2.1 version.  Here is a link to the ticket:



Besides, new icons are just ugly. Sorry to say so, but they're looking like done by some amateur

I think they look nice, but very difficult to differentiate from one another. Basically every time i want to do an action, I have to read from underneath, what icon it is.

I'm really confused with what seems like a really big step backwards in design.

The icon will be back in the next bugfix release. Thanks for the feedback!

Another +1...

SourceTree lacks also on Push & Pull... All the time:

Sourcetree: Push & Pull troubels



+1, digging around through Menus and waiting for sub-menus to load is very annoying!

+1, that button is better for the new users, not all people know the shortcut, please add it again.
