v2.1.2.5 Sidebar content auto closing after every action


The left sidebar treeview content (File Status, Branches, Tags, Remotes, Stashes) now automatically close on nearly every click within the SourceTree app.

This is highly frustrating as I need those menus open and it's adding a lot of extra clicks to my workflow. 

Is anyone else having this issue? If this is an issue with the software (as opposed to my local environment) are there any plans to fix this?

To clarify, the sidebar remains open but all the content (File Status, Branches, Tags, Remotes, Stashes) gets collapsed.

+1 "This is highly frustrating"

MacOS v2.5.3(115) is working properly.
