[SOLVED] How to connect to an existing ssh key on Github with SourceTree? (Mac OSX) Edited

I have my key configured through command line and on github so that I can clone, fetch, push and pull repos.

In SourceTree, when I try to add my account, when I first get to the screen it properly shows my id_rsa.pub, but when I click Connect Account, and authorize through Github, then it changes the key to myname-GitHub.pub, and then adds that key to github ssh keys when I click OK.

How do I add an account to SourceTree that uses my default id_rsa.pub that I have already generated?

 

[SOLVED] I had to re-open the repos with ST info cleared from ~/Library/Application Support/SourceTree, and use the password that I created when i generated id_rsa.pub.
