  1. 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).

      • Support for UE4 (Unreal Engine 4) source control

        UE4 Editor has source control built into it's editor similar to Unity. It would be great to be able to connect to Plastic since it's so useful for game development. It looks like a fairly straightforward plugin system (but a ways beyond my ability at the moment)

        • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • Annotate this line

                            Usually, I don't need annotation of a whole file (which is really slow for big files); an annotation of a specific line or maybe several lines would be enough.
                            New context menu command Annotate this line from Diff/Merge tool would be very helpful.

                              I'd be great if we can make a partial undo when there's a pending merge link. It could be helpful if you have not finished work but need to checkin your merge link and/or other changes

                              • Put Added and private items at the end of a Pending changes list

                                Added and private items behave differently than all other three types of changes (Changed, Deleted, Moved). They are not really changes, actually. I think they should be separated more clearly. Now, it is not so easy to understand why Added and private items do not respond to Undo changes (http://www.plasticscm.net/index.php?/topic/1251-updated-list-of-feature-requests/) and on the other side it is easy to overlook some deleted or moved items which are listed bellow Private items (http://www.plasticscm.net/index.php?/topic/1291-some-ux-issues/#entry8989).

                                • 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.

                                  • Optimize Annotate

                                    Annotate for bigger files with long history is very slow and even stops with error. A performance optimization would be much appreciated. Annotation of just a part of a file (https://plasticscm.uservoice.com/forums/15467-general/suggestions/3533001-annotate-this-line) is one option, some caching is maybe another way, how to deal with that.

                                      • Add the same "Synchronize All" functionality to the command line tool that exists in the GUI tool.

                                        Add a switch to the command line tool that gives the same functionality as the GUI tool's "Synchronize All" function. Additionally, give [both] the ability to synchronize all views at the same time.

                                        This would allow easier scripting of "backups" to a central server.
