[Bug] "New branch" button opens empty menu in detached HEAD #225
I just had the same issue. It happens indeed when a repo is not connected to a branch. For example in a submodule, where it's connected to commits without branches.
I understand that I can't create another branch, when there is no base branch seleted. But in this case I was connected to an commit, shouldn't that be enough to create a new branch?
Or at least a friendly message, that I need to checkout a branch first.
The small menu on the left bottom side of the button is what happened to me too.
