right-click menu greyed out

I've just started using SourceTree on windows. When I right-click a commit, all the options are greyed out. In particular I'm trying to branch from a commit.

(Related question: where is the documentation, tutorial, etc? All I see are the FAQs and not many of those...)

Thanks.

Steve

The documentation is installed with the product. Look for the Help menu.

Actually that's where it *should* be, but we haven't supplied dedicated Help with the Windows version yet. We're catching up with the Mac version one step at a time...

Are you right-clicking a commit inside a dialog? When you're in a dialog many of the other functions are disabled because you're already in a process (e.g. merging). When you right-click on a commit in the top-level tab's log view though, you should have most things enabled (and some not, depending on which commit you select - for example selecting the current commit will disable Merge and Rebase, selecting the Uncommitted Changes line will disable things that require the line to be an actual commit, etc).
