How to search in commit descriptions

Can sourcetree be used to search in commit descriptions in a branch (or multiple branches..)?

Seems strange that I can't seem to find such a useful feature.

At the bottom of the interface is a search tab (File Status, Log / History, Search). It does search commit messages, but I don't think it can be restricted to a particular branch.

You can also search file changes or authors using the dropdown to the right of the search box, but that doesn't sound particularly helpful.

Meanwhile, the search view button moved to the top left corner of the UI where you can switch between

  • File Status (check-mark symbol)
  • Log (clock symbol)
  • Search (magnifying glass symbol)

Select Search, "Commit Message" next to the "Search:" label and enter your search String left of it, and hit Enter.

Thank for the update, the Magnifying glass symbol just not catch my eye attention. I am looking for it. Thanks for your update!
