I'm trying to find a way to copy a specific file from one branch to another branch.
E.g. User 1 has been working in the Feature1 branch for some time. Now user2, working in the Feature2 branch, needs a file that exists in the Feature1 branch. Is there a "smooth" way of accomplishing this?
One "dirty" way of doing it would be to copy the file on the local machine (from working directory when the Feature1 branch is checked out) and paste it into the working directory for the Feature2 branch.
There is a clean and easy way to do this in Sourcetree without checking out:
User 2 can checkout feature1 and copy the file somewhere - anywhere - it can even just be to a different name in the same working directory (where it will become an untracked file). Then checkout feature2, copy the file back to its proper place and name, and do "git add".
