I cannot create branch with names as Feature/Module/Marco using the git-flow integration starting a new feature.

If I manually create the branch, no problem at all.

If i use the "start new feature" of git-flow I get the following error:


The name is invalid. Ref names must follow git ref-format rules:
Additionally Sourcetree does not support the use of '/' in Git-flow branch names
Completed with errors, see above.


how can I solve this?

Windows 10 64 bit
SouceTree version 3.4.7
Git for windows 2.34.1
