Unmodified files in working copy changes

For all my projects, Sourcetree displays all the files in the project in the "Working Copy Changes" pane. It lists all the files as Unmodified. How can I remove these files from the Working Copy Changes pane?

- I can't discard them (the option is greyed out)

- I can't stage them (does nothing)

- I'm ignoring whitespace

- I have core.filemode=false

- I have core.autocrlf=true

- This happens with both embedded and system git

I don't see the problem using git on the command line (via cygwin), it behaves correctly.

I'm using SourceTree v1.2.3.0, but it's been happening for the last couple of updates.

Thanks!

Use the dropdown menu to change the filter to "Show Pending".

Perfect, thanks.

Highlight file - right mouse - Click Ignore - Select Ignore Everything Beneath...choose bin folder, or bin/debug, etc.  This was useful in my case anyway.  Other options are there also, for specific file, etc...

Or - ignore custom pattern - for example, this ignored all bin folders, and packages folders, etc.  Huge.

bin/
packages/
