when I click on open in sourcetree it opens the file in default applicaiton associated with file extension however I want it to open in sublimetext editor, is there a way to configure this.
OSX can be finicky in this sometimes. The best thing to do is right click on the filetype you want to change, choose Open With and set the right app, and then click Change All... which makes it stick for all files with the same filetype.
'Open With' isn't available as an option right now. I have it on my list, but it's not implemented yet because in fact the new Mac App Store rules that Apple are introducing say you're not allowed to do it, and indeed the Sandbox blocks access to any 'open' command which specifies an app, rather than letting the Finder default take effect.
Our current opinion is that other issues with the Sandbox mean that we will probably stop updating the App Store once Apple require it, but they've pushed the deadline back a bit so we're waiting to see what they do. If it's still unworkable then we'll officially discount updating the app store anymore and then we'll be able to implement things like this.
I'll share an update on how to solve this problem. Sourcetree seems to use OSX's default app config so its just a matter of right clicking a file and choosing Get info (cmd+i) and finding the Open with section.
The previous accepted solution where you right click the file and choose Open with will not set default app for all instances of filetype. It will only apply to the selected file.
So it's been 7 years... Anyone gotten around to this by any chance?
EDIT: Custom Actions make this pretty easy to set up. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/20309879/how-to-set-default-file-viewer-in-sourcetree
7 years? About right for Atlassian. :)
This also happens in Windows.
BTW, the custom action works - but is not available in the log window. I want to open a cshtml file? It passes it to windows that decides to open it using the oldest, unlicensed version of VS I have installed. And 'cos it's unlicensed it closes straight away.
So in my particular instance it makes the log view mostly useless. Why it lets the OS decide what to do is beyond me. There should be an override.
Silly they didn't add the custom action to the context menu in the Log viewer.
I did find a workaround (I'm on Windows but may work on Mac) using a custom action: Right-click the file and select "Log Selected". Locate the commit you want to view and right-click and select "View in Full Log". Once there, you can again right-click and select the custom action to open the file. Round about but it did work for me.
Another option is taking the "Annotate Selected..." option from the context menu in the Log Viewer. This brings up a window containing the text of the file. Stupidly, I can select all but it only copies the current line. But at least the text is visible.
Hello Sourcetree users!!! With the recent removal of Bitbucket Cloud account passwords for app passwords (please see our Bitbucket Cloud community post for details on why we made this change for se...
