Why won't UI refresh after staging in files in Sourcetree Version 3.3.6 ? Edited

I updated Sourcetree a few days ago to Version 3.3.6.  Since then, the user interface does not update itself after I commit files, or change branches.  It's like I didn't really do the thing that I just finished doing.  If I close and reopen Sourcetree, Things come up correct.

Was there something in the last release that broke the user interface refreshing itself after certain operations?

Here's some steps to reproduce the problem I'm seeing:

1. Change some source files so that they appear in the 'Unstaged files' area in Sourcetree.

2. Select all the files

3. Click 'Stage All'

4. For me, the files all stay in the 'Unstaged Files' area and the 'Stage All' button disables.

5. Click onto a different project folder and then back onto the folder you started with.

6. The files are now in the 'Staged files' portion of the screen and the 'Stage All' button is enabled

This appears to be a serious bug in 3.3.6.

It is also discussed (with a workaround) here:

I hope Atlassian are noticing this feedback?

Removing the bookmark for the repo (close the tab) and then re-opening a tab fixed this for me. 

great tip, thanks! Been driving me nuts for a while! 

Same thing happened to me. I got so frustrated, I downgraded back to 3.3.4

Same thing happens on the latest 3.3.7.... I have to manually hit F5 after every button click and command and staging, adding, pushing, pulling, on every screen, to see any sort of updates.


So still not fixed...

I'm having the same issue after upgrading to version 3.3.6. Very frustrating and I'm hoping Atlassian are following this issue. Another work around other than re-starting is to move the window to another screen. (This worked for me as I have a dual screen setup)

I'll probably downgrade and hope this gets fixed soon.


Thanks to @curtiscode for starting this thread with the issue.

Same issue,


Seems Version 3.3.6 has so many other problems.

It needs fixing asap

I'm also having the same problem.
A work-around (without having to restart Sourcetree) is to select a different option from the File Status drop-down, the change back to your previous selection (for me, I go from Pending to Untracked then back to Pending). Changed source files are then shown.
SHOWING the files is ALL it fixes, though.
If I stage/unstage, I have to switch the drop-down option again to see the UI updates.
Same thing if I make a commit.

Haven't figured out a work-around for the lack of branch updates (for example, after making the commit, the number on my branches doesn't increment for the number of commits different from remote. I have to restart to fix that. Same for after I push to remote.)

I really hope they fix this soon. I'm downgrading until they do.

Encountered the same issue myself on upgrading to 3.3.6

Downgraded back to an earlier version.


This is critical functionality that has regressed, please fix this as soon as possible.

Version 3.3.6 is unusable until this issue is resolved.

It's still in 3.3.7...

This has been fixed in

I manually downloaded and installed the update. (The automatic update failed as well so forced the upgrade)

Yep. Windows 10 does not allow 3.3.8 "Windows Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk."
