I'm following along a Lynda.com tutorial that is using SourceTree. The presenter is using the Mac version and I have the Windows version. I am using Windows 10.
The first issue I hit was I couldn't drag and drop the tutorial folder into SourceTree. So, I simply did File | Open and pointed to the folder on my hard drive. The folder only has 1 file to start.
In the Lynda.com tutorial, the Mac version shows the contents of this text file. I don't see it on the lower right pane. The only way I can view this file is by double-clicking the file name from the lower left pane. However, that opens the file in Windows notepad.
I took a screen snap of how it look on the Lynda.com tutorial, but I can't get the image to insert either by dragging or uploading. The server is responding with a generic HTTP error
I spoke with a friend via Skype and did a screen share. He said I should've been able to drag the folder over and the contents should show. I decided to delete what I had and start over. This time the folder opened and I could see the file contents. I'm not sure what caused the initial hiccough.
To clarify, I think what you are talking about is the "diff" view. When you are adding a new file, the diff view will typically show every line as being added. You may have to single click on the file first. I have noticed a minor bug occasionally in Windows where the diff view will be blank. Try adding a second file, and then selecting the second file, then back to the first in SourceTree.
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 ...
