How to make SourceTree aware of repository checked out by Git ??

I've been using command-line Git to manage my repositories, but SourceTree doesn't seem to know about them automatically.  Is there some way that I can tell it to look in a directory and recognize the branch(es) checked out there?

If you already have the open is SourceTree and it does not notice the changes made outside of SourceTree, press F5 to refresh the view.

You've got to drag your repository directories into the Sourcetree bookmarks window.

Oh!! It's that simple?!?!? Okay, I'll test that on Monday...

Yes, those instructions both work fine; thanks!
