How to search through commits?

It must be possible to search through commits in sourcetree. I'm just trying to search in the commit messages, but searching for changed filenames would be cool to.

I can't find out how to do this...

To search through the commit messages, go to the "Search" tab (at the bottom of the page). This brings up the search view, with a search bar at top.

You can search on "Commit Messages", "File Changes" or "Authors".

Excellent! I must say I've never noticed those tabs...I guess I sort of knew they were there, but I never gave them any thought. To search, I normally try Ctrl+F or F3, and if that doesn't do anything, I start looking through the Edit menus, and then other menus if I still can't find it.

So I do like to make a friendly suggestion: Ctrl+F to activate the Search tab and focus the search field. And an entry in the Edit menu.

Martin - I didn't notice them either! Like you, I checked the menu, and also various right-click context menus. It is already in the menu under "View".

I've created a feature request-
