mercurial: hide closed branches in the sidebar Edited

SourceTree for Windows with a Mercurial repo now shows all my closed branches in the sidebar.  How do I only show active branches?

I'm afraid I can't reproduce the behaviour you describe, see the attached image, my closed local branch is not listed in the sidebar.

Have I misunderstood your scenario?


Here is a screenshot demonstrating the problem.

This is a test repo cloned from elsewhere with hg-flow set up.  There are currently 3 open branches, "default", "develop", and "branch1".  However, the sidebar still shows "feature/branch2".

In my actual repo, the sidebar shows hundreds of old feature branches.



Confirming the same issue since the latest update

I am experiencing the same problem since updating to version - problem still exists
