re-enable warning for empty commits

By default, when you try do a commit with an empty commit message, you get popup to warn you. This popup has a checkbox "don't warn me again"

For a specific use case I needed to do a lot of commits where adding a commit message was unnecessary, so I checked the checkbox - expecting I could re-enable the warning in the settings later. However, I can't find this option anywhere.

How can I re-enable the warning for empty commits?

Hi Jaron! The way to re-enable that pop up depends on whic OS are you using:

- In Windows, edit the %localappdata%/Atlassian/SourceTree.exe_url_{hash}/{version}/user.config and change

<setting name="SuppressWarningOnEmptyCommit" serializeAs="String">




<setting name="SuppressWarningOnEmptyCommit" serializeAs="String">



- In Mac, type the following in your terminal

defaults write com.TorusKnot.SourceTreeNotMAS suppressWarnOnEmptyCommit NO

and press 'Enter'.

Cheers :)


Yay, it worked! Thanks Ana.
