I just used SourceTree Mac to commit files I have in a project. Since I also work on those files from Windows, I had the surprise to notice that the commited files are marked as hidden.
It's still possible to see them on the Mac finder, but when switching to Windows, they "disappear" and my compilers can't open them.
After checking the options, I didn't find any way to stop SourceTree mark them hidden.
Is there a way to avoid that behaviour?
Thanks for any help
yes I use VMWare Fusion and develop mainly from the Windows side, but all files and repositories are on the Mac side accessed via a shared folder: Y:\projects\...
Commited files have the Windows Hidden flag set though. I see them on the Mac side which ignores those flags, not in the Windows side unless I tell it to show hidden items. But my compiler doesn't see them natively.
Any way not to mark them as hidden?
All files are fine as long as they don't pass through SourceTree. Once committed, only thoses ones are marked as hidden. All the other ones, excluded from .gitignore, are left as-is. The Windows side has nothing to do with this since they don't interact with those files and never set those flags in any manner.
The only files that are suddenly marked as hidden are the ones going through a SourceTree commit.
A manual commit via the git executable doesn't alter them either.
That's why I need to disable that feature in order to be able to use SourceTree as expected.
