Sourcetree for Windows not showing uncommited files

I'm new to this program, but I seem to have an issue with Sourcetree not keeping up. I have a repository setup and when I make a file change, sometimes it shows up to be staged and committed, sometimes all I get is Nothing to commit. Hard to work this way when I have to keep going. 

Please let me know if you need more info or if there's something I can do.

Are there specific files that don't show up as commitable? The default .gitignore file includes some extensions that can be used by Visual Studio for source code.

I'm editing a WordPress theme, so these are standard .php & .css files. It seems to be an issue with just one repository. Is there a clean way to remove it and re-create it?

If you have the repository pushed to a remote, re-clone from the remote to a new location. See if the new repo works any differently.

Sometimes the UI does not refresh correctly / when needed. (I see this mainly in the commit dialog.) Press F5 to refresh the view if you know or suspect that something is not up-to-date.

Nice idea, but the f5 does not work. I'm afraid this particular repository got corrupted somehow, it's been giving me grief since the beginning, other ones that I've been using have been fine. I will probably have to do the re-clone and start over, sigh. Thanks for all your help!
