Interactive rebase to reword previous commits

Can SourceTree do an interactive rebase with reword?

I need to change the commit messages for a number of previous commits.

Unfortunately I cannot use commit ammend because it is not just the last commit.

Ok. I can swee this on Mac but not on Windows version

The Mac and Windows SourceTree are completely independent products. Windows is catching up to what the Mac does at the moment. Interactive rebase isn't implemented yet in Windows but should be in the future.

Hope that helps

Hi D K,

Sure thing! SourceTree 1.6 supports interactive rebasing, just context-click on the commit you wish to rebase from (or hit the Repository menu and hit "Interactive Rebase") and then double click on the message column which opens a popup so you can change your commit message. Hit OK on that and it'll run through the commits.

Make sure you don't do this on already pushed commits though as it'll cause problems for people pulling those changes later on.

Hope that helps
