Sourcetree: how do I view and copy the entire commit comment from the Description column?

Sourcetree: how do I view and copy the entire commit comment from the Description column?

A) I can't see all of the comment because if it is a multi-line comment, I can't expand the window wide enough to see everything.

B) I want to copy another user's branch commit comment so I can use it in an email.

FYI, we're using Sourcetree with hosted GIT (Assembla).

On another Mac running the same SourceTree version I can see both the files and the commit detail. I have no idea how to get the commit detail back.

I have the same issue. 2.2.2 (51), after upgrade it is the same sad
