Why doesn't the graph in Sourcetree display a new branch branching off from the master branch , when I create a new branch called "testing123" in terminal ?
Sourcetree recognises the new branch but it doesn't branch off from the master branch in the graph. Why is this happening ? How can I make Sourcetree graph display the new branch branching off from master?

Once a new commit will have been created on
master, you will see a fork.

2 possible reasons for this:
- You have 'Current Branch' selected at the top of the log view, or
- The branches didn't actually cause a divergence in the graph.
A branch is just a marker, unless different commits actually occurred in each that were not shared between then, there won't be a fork in the graph.
