How do I set the author name on commits?

Prior to Sourcetree 1.9 it was easy to set the author name on commits. I needed to do this when I checked something in on behalf of another user. I only see the ability now to specify the commit message.

How do I set the author name now?

Hi Rich,

Clicking on the avatar next to the commit user will open up the author pane and allow you to customize the commit author being used. See the screenshot below for an example.

Cheers,

Jeff
