I found myself accidentally making changes in the wrong branch before I checked anything in. I tried to switch branch and it told me I couldn't because I had outstanding changes. I read that I could shelve changes, switch branch and then retrieve those changes on the correct branch.
I have done the first two steps but now can't find a way to actually unshelve the changes. I can't find anything in menus either in the toolbar or context menus. I've looked in the .hg/attic directory and I can see the changes stored there so I know that its not that they don't exist.
In the left panel of your repository, (not counting bookmarks, if you're on windows), you should see expandable lists for "File Status", "Branches", "Tags", "Remotes", and "Stashes" ("Shelves"). Some of the terminology may be slightly different, because I use Git, not Mercurial.
You should be able to expand Shelves, and right click a shelf to apply/delete.
How did you do the shelving?
I cannot speak for mercurial but for git only - I think the procedure is called "stashing" in git
Using Sourcetree 1.3.3 on Windows.
Hope that helps
That is very helpful but sadly just a bit slower than Seth. I did indeed stash as you suggested but hadn't really understood how it worked so was just expecting a similar "unstash" button somewhere to click on. What you say makes perfect sense now and will make me more efficient with sourcetree now. :)
