Are you wanting to merge the entirety of a branch up to a tagged commit, or just the single commit?
To "merge" just the one commit, you want to right click the commit (no tag necessary) and "Cherry pick" it.
To merge a branch up to a tag that isn't the latest commit in that branch, you'll need to create a new branch on that commit, then merge with the new branch.
Tags are just named commits. There is really nothing you can do with them that you can't do with a commit hash.
Yes, I want to merge the entirety of a branch up to a tagged commit. Using the Git command-line I can do this in one step (i.e. git merge <tag>) so I was expecting a way to do this in one step using SourceTree withouth having to create a new branch.
I will consider submitting an enhancement request for this functionality to be added to SourceTree
Took me awhile to find the "Search tab" right at the bottom. This tab allows me to search by Authors, Commit Messages and File Changes but not by tags which is not that straight-forward as I might know the tag name but not necessarily the commit mesasge associated with it.
The "Jump to" option in the top right-hand corner seems to hold more promise. However the drop-down does not have a scroll-bar making it tough to find the tag I am looking for (if it is way down in the list) and requiring me to scroll a lot using the mouse wheel. Can this be enhanced?
The "Jump to" option also contains a "Jump to Commit" option within it. It would be great if this could be enhanced to provide the ability to Jump to branch or tag that is typed in
