Amend last commit message?

I messed up a commit message and and noticed before I pushed my local repo changes out so I wanted to edit the message. I couldn't find anywhere obvious to do this within SourceTree.

I just did it via the git command in the end (git commit --amend -m "correct message").

Did I miss the ability to do this in the SourceTree interface or is it simply not there?

It's there, at the bottom left of the commit window, 'Amend latest commit' checkbox).

Ah! Thanks Steve. :) Stupidly, I didn't think of looking in the commit window - I was looking for something off of the newest log item's right click menu.

In version 2.0.5.2 on Mac, the option is now at the top right of the commit section. "Amend last commit" is the first option in the "Commit options..." dropdown.
