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?

Is there any ability to ability add this warning in version 3.4.7 of SourceTree? It seems that the configuration option mentioned above is no longer present.

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.
