I've noticed that if i open SourceTree from below the root git working directory that SourceTree will not recognize that it has an existing bookmark for the repo and offer to create a new local repository. Is my SourceTree misconfigured or is it only able to be launched against the root of the repo? Or maybe there's something with the alias I'm using?
alias st='open -a /Applications/SourceTree.app/Contents/MacOS/SourceTree'
Sounds like unusual SourceTree usage to me, but I can't think of any reason you shouldn't be able to use it that way. My guess is nobody's ever noticed that particular bug.
If you file a bug report at jira.atlassian.com, I imagine it could be addressed in the next version or two (I'm just a user though, so don't take that as any sort of commitment).
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 ...
