One of the features I use most in SourceTree is discarding all my changes.
For that, I have been selecting changed files and pressing "Reset". However, this option is available only if all selected files are already in repository (modified/removed etc). If any selected file is new, then "Reset" is grayed out.
So I have to manually select modified files, press "Reset".. and then select remaining files and press "Remove". This is so annoying, oh my god :( Especially when I have dozens of files and I have to go one by one, it takes forever.
It's easier to create a stash and delete it, but it's such a misuse of stashes. Why on earth there is no option to "Reset" my tree to the state of my repository?
Please tell me you have a solution for this.
If you select one or more modified files that's already in the repository then you can use the "Reset All" option in the Reset… dialog to discard all changes at once. Any files left after that should be untracked and deleted with a simple select all 😀
Senior Mac Developer, Sourcetree
Well in most cases I have both "new" and "modified" files to discard. They are not ordered in any way, so I have to go through the list one by one and select only modified ones. If even one "new" file gets selected, then "Reset All" is grayed out.
Keep in mind that when the list is long, then discarding all changes is really tedious when it should be straightforward. Something like cmd-a, right click, discard.
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
