Hi Diane,

checkout the branch on your local machine from source tree.

If you are using atlassian Bitbucket, Stash, Fisheye the option is available to checkout branch directly on your local machine.

 

For other hosting applications like "Github" you can add branch through terminal using below command

git checkout -b new-featrure  origin/new-featrure

I hope this will help you.

thanks

 

Where exactly is the option in Source Tree v2 to check out the branch to my local machine?

 

I have an existing repository but I just want to check out another branch that someone else created.
