looking for a solution to the question above as I have multiple uncommited changes (1631 in fact) that I wish to discard everything at one go.
any solution would be greatly appreciated thanks!
Sourcetree expects you to check all the files that you would like to discard. With 1631 changes and no option to "Check all" files, I think git command line is your simpler option.
You can use the commands:
git checkout .
git clean -fdx
I highlighted all the files and selected discard. It came up and showed the differences with a discard changes button on the bottom right and when I click it, it pops a window that says "At least select one file". How? I have highlighted them but there is not check box.
WTF an interface should be intuitive. I'd stick to SVN and Tortoise but my company choose this wack-oh system.
Wish they'd hire professionals to design their interfaces.
Good grief. The "Reset All" tab should be relabeled to "Discard All". I thought it was a shortcut to something that would reset the dialog settings...
Tom could be more tactful, but he does have some good points. I'm sure all the functionality the designers intended is in there somewhere, but it is NOT always obvious how to get things to work. There are far too many places where certain implications/connotations of specific function-names are not intuitive to someone who doesn't KNOW the system.
The whole GUI could use a professional review by someone who does NOT know how it works.
There are definitely parts of the UI that could be more intuitive, the Discard/Reset button being one of them.
However, since SourceTree is a GUI frontend for 3rd-party command line software (Git or Mercurial), many decisions are constrained by the need to remain consistent with that (especially with terminology).
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 ...
