SourceTree: can't finish feature branches (win10)

I'm trying to finish my feature branches (GoogleAccountAccess, EmergencyContact). I've already merged them but I can't finish them. If I select a feature branch and click on the GitFlow button, the dialog to create a new branch appears instead of the finish branch dialog.

Probably this is caused by a mistake of myself, naming the feature branch with an uppercase letter "Feature". I don't know how to fix this problem! Thanks in advance for your help!


Here my .git config:

    repositoryformatversion = 0
    filemode = false
    bare = false
    logallrefupdates = true
    symlinks = false
    ignorecase = true
    hideDotFiles = dotGitOnly
[remote "origin"]
    url =
    fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
[branch "master"]
    remote = origin
    merge = refs/heads/master
[branch "develop"]
    remote = origin
    merge = refs/heads/develop
[branch "Feature/GoogleAccountAcces"]
    remote = origin
    merge = refs/heads/Feature/GoogleAccountAcces
[branch "Feature/EmergencyContact"]
    remote = origin
    merge = refs/heads/Feature/GoogleAccountAcces

When you say "selected", do you mean you have the feature branch highlighted in the branch list or commit list, or do you have it checked out? I believe Git Flow bases its actions on which branch you have checked out.

You can rename the branches to lowercase, or alternatively select "other action..." under GitFlow.

Thx a lot :) This was exactly my problem My branch name was containing "("  and ")"
