I've been working fine with Sourcetree for a while. Recently it started to become slow with detecting file changes in my project. After a few days of this behaviour, it stopped detecting them altogether.
I am using version 188.8.131.52 on Windows 10, working with a BitBucket repo.
Now every time I need to use Sourcetree I need to exit and reopen it in order to pick up the latest changes.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, which fixed the problem for about 24 hours, but then it came back again.
Lastly, reinstall SourceTree following How to Wipe SourceTree Preferences and see if that works.
Using version 184.108.40.20629 here. I had the same problem twice. I wiped once and it worked well for a few days. Now it doesn't work anymore.
Thankfully, F5 presses work.
Ahh, my problem goes beyond mere file updates. If I commit my code, it won't show that the commit worked (despite executing the command) until I press F5. Same applies to pushing and everything else.
I'm having this issue as well. It doesn't even update properly when I checkout a different branch, everything just stays the same unless I press F5 or restart the application.
It was working fine for me before I updated to 3.3.7 yesterday, but I don't want to downgrade back to the version with the annoying empty local branch name bug :|
David Baker pointed me to the fix in 3.3.8. Here is the Jira link, and in there is a link to the exe. Totally worked for me. We're back in business. Thanks David for pointing it out!
The Jira link from David's message:
What an absolute ballache! Is there no chance of reverting back to a stable branch that still has the dark theme?
Edit: Sorry, I ment to post this as a reply to the initial answer - now I can't delete my answer :( Atlassian software... Flawless as always *cries in corner*
That's a bummer, how come I couldn't find the update either from sourcetree nor from the website itself in the download section??
This version is dated from 20.1.2020 and today 28.1.2020 with a critical bug making the tool next to impossible to use for the whole team, and there update is just "sitting" for 8 days.
I'm puzzled and frankly quite annoyed about that
