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...)

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).
