File search in SourceTree

How can I do a file search in SourceTree?  For example, I am looking for all file commits with the .yml extension only.

While I'd love to see a feature added to SourceTree that would allow you to see the history of a file that does not currently exist. A workaround though would be to add to every commit the files that were updated. That way you could search commit messages for .yml and get all commits where a .yml file was updated.

You can't search commits by filename in SourceTree. It might be possible on the Git command line, but I don't know for sure.

You can search your working copy by filename. In the File Status tab, choose to show "All" instead of "Pending", then type your search in the search box to the right (e.g., "yml").

You can also view all of the commits for a particular file by right-clicking the file, and choosing "Log Selected..."
