    • Support partial Xlinks

      Right now it's only possible to include a whole repository via Xlinks. It would be nice if additionally a path could be specified. This would make it much easier to work with different versions, because only the path to the version and not a changeset needs to be entered..

      • Possibility to merge independently added files/directories

        Two folders (or files) with the same name added into different branches independently, cannot be merged in Plastic now.
        It would be priceless in some cases (especially for folders).

          • Reply in Code Review

            Sort comments in a Code review according to files and lines to which they are connected to and then according to a timestamp of a last edit instead of sorting it according to a timestamp of a last edit only.
            Ideally indent comments to the same line and add a Reply button too.

            • Customizable columns

              Make possible to select visible columns in table views such as Changesets, Items, Branches, etc.
              We want to see Attributes and Labels in a Changesets view, but we usually do not care about GUIDs.

              • File "branching" to allow new file to track inheritance from previous file

                In Perforce, you can branch an individual file to a new name, in a sense copying it - including history.
                This allows future trackback of changes through the file all the way to original files.

                Use case:
                Re-factor of source file to separate into multiple files.

                • close merge tab after processing the merge

                  After doing a merge in the GUI, the tab that was opened to handle the merge is left open, but empty. After doing 3 or 4 merges, you often have a bunch of empty and useless tabs left open on the UI.

                  If the tab could automatically close after the merge has been successfully processed, it would make the GUI a lot cleaner.

                  • Highlighting of a new line in diffs

                    I think it will be more consistent to highlight (with a darker color) all added characters, even on lines which are all new. See the picture:
                    http://s15.postimg.org/uln6ryq17/diff.png
                    Otherwise it is more difficult to distinguish what was really changed. Especially for longer lines.

                          An undo action (Ctrl+Z) is really needed in a Merge Tool. Especially when editing the result manually.

                            • Add syntax highlights when using merge and diff windows

                              When differing or merging code, would be great if we could have some syntax highlights to other languages like C#, Java.
                              Add syntax highlight like Visual Studio to .cshtml, .css, .js and etc.
                              Something like notepad++ does.

                                  • Create a master conditional format that can be pushed from the server to all users

                                    Each user in our organization has to set up their own conditional format rules. We would like it if there was a way to set this up once, and push it to all of the other users.

                                      • If a changeset is deleted, switch to the parent changeset and KEEP the changes in the "pending changes"

                                        When a changeset is removed the workspace is switching to the parent changeset and all changes get lost.
                                        I think it is better to keep all changes in the "pending changes", so you do not lose any changes and you can add some more changes.

                                        It often happens to me that I forget some small changes, so I have to check in again producing a lot of unnecessary changesets.

                                        • Go to the commented line in Code review directly on first double click

                                          First double click on a comment in a Code review tool takes you to the file containing the commented line and only the second double click takes you to the commented line. I don’t see the reason for such behavior; it is irritating actually. It would be nice, if the first double click takes you directly to the commented line without the need to switch to that file in a separated step.
