How to properly rebase in SourceTree?
SourceTree 22.214.171.124 on Windows 7.
Let’s say the following is my starting point:
C <- master / - A - B <- topic
I want to rebase topic onto master.
My goal is to have:
C - A - B ^ ^ master topic
but I end up with:
I can then do
git push origin topic -f
and I get the intended result, but what is the proper way to do this in SourceTree?

Update: SourceTree 1.9.1
You can enable force push in Tools/Options/Git/Enable Force Push. After it is enabled you can check “Force Push” check box in the “Push” dialog.
You have to do a force push, because topic branch is already published and you are rewriting history. Commits A and B from origin/topic are removed if you rebase.
You should make a merge if you don’t want to do a force push, specially if you have a team members already working on topic.
You can’t do a force push with SourceTree for Windows yet (see answers at atlassian forums).
You can vote for this feature here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/SRCTREEWIN-338
UPDATE: SourceTree Version 2.2.4 (57) (for Mac)
Go to SourceTree/Preferences/General and click ‘Allow force push’ towards the bottom.
Then you can click Force Push in the push dialog.
