SourceTree can't use the commit template

I have saved my comment template in $HOME/.gitmessage.txt and in the terminal, run "git config --global  commit.template $HOME/.gitmessage.txt" and "git config commit.template $HOME/.gitmessage.txt". Now when I commit in command line or the source terminal, the comment template can take effect.

But when I click "Commit" in SourceTree GUI, the comment window is blank.

My operations is same to the answer of git config commit.template apparently not working, but still can't work.

I am using SourceTree 1.6.4

same problem here

I used the repository settings in SourceTree but whatever I type in it is not working. I re-started source tree and I can still see the text but it never appears at commit ??
