  1. It is not possible to Undo unchanged in Pending changes because of a error "All merge changes must be undone together."

    You allow new changes to be added to the Pending changes. Why you do not allow to undo things? What if this was unintended and I want to exclude something during merging?

  2. Sometimes, two members of my team change the same Unity Prefab in different commits. This leads to a conflict when merging. It also triggers an error message - the merge tool can't open the file.

    This is different from code-based conflicts (Plastic's Merge Tool opens, and works well).

    If I fix the merge conflict before attempting to Auto Merge (i.e. right click on the prefab asset, and select "use mine" or "use theirs"), everything works as expected.

    It would be nice if Plastic brought up a more helpful error message. Something like "we're working on a merge tool for [insert…

  3. I suggest adding a Lower() (and/or Upper()) function to the where clauses of the cm find function. For example,

    cm find branch where attribute = 'Status' and lower(attrvalue) = 'complete'

    or

    cm find branch where upper(name) like 'TASK%'

  4. It would be cool to be able to add comments for binary files when doing a code review - e.g. for UE4 blueprints (.uasset) after looking at the blueprint diff of the files.

  5. Look that this beautiful theme you have for MacOS - https://www.plasticscm.com/download/releasenotes/7.0.16.2815

    Please get me that for windows.

    The pending changes / branch view is burning a hole into my eyes.

  6. Adjust the text colours for the 'Info about this merge' panel

    See the bottom of this screenshot for the example: https://gyazo.com/a57c98b8ad7b39f4b76e8371a6900c15

  7. Spell checking should suggest corrections via the context menu and not only underline mistakes. Many people may be fine with the visual hint, but there are quite a lot of developers who have trouble with spelling, especially in foreign languages, and would benefit from corrections.

    As an aside, I would also welcome a Grammarly plugin like in Microsoft Word or browsers nowadays.

  8. For security purposes, it would be nice to be able to have extra security when logging in or to verify who has access to the repository. Something similar to what Bitbucket or Github Implement would be nice.

  9. Plastic integration with Jira Next-Gen projects is broken. There is no way to send data back to Jira projects from Plastic. There should be a Jira plug-in to make the set up for this not only possible but easy.

  10. Hello.

    I probably discovered following error: When searching for given word within changeset diff, the backward jumping does not operate -- pressing "search previous match" button has no effect whereas "search following match" have.

    Regards

  12. In the Changesets view, have a split view, that shows the filenames of the files in that change set.

    The view could be just like you use in the Pending Changes view, where the split is resizable, with the top half showing change sets, and the bottom showing the files in the changeset currently selected. That way you can quickly arrow up/down through the change sets and see the files instantly in that set.

    If you want to get to the diffing tool, you still need to double click the changeset. This is only about showing the files in the…

  13. I'm new to Plastic, and just had my first merge conflict to address.

    I think on this screen, where you choose between Source/Base/Destination, it would be really helpful to show the username, checkin comment and timestamp associated with Source and Base, as a helpful peace-of-mind, 'I am not about to accidently break the build' feature.

    I ended up tabbing to the Branch Explorer and using the Changeset numbers to look up these details, but it felt pretty fiddly to do.

  14. When adding a new xlink to a project, you must select a target changeset to track on the linked repository. When you open the dialog box, the default search query is this:

    find changeset where date > '5/27/2020' on repository '<repo_name>@<server_name>:<port>

    (today is 6/26/2020)

    For some reason it always defaults to only show changesets from less than 1 month in the past. Seeing as xlink is primarily used for reusable, modular code, this means there is almost never any changesets shown. So in order to find the latest changeset you have to click "Advanced" and remove the date clause manually.

  15. When trying to switch the workspace to a different changeset/branch, the user is first asked if he's sure, but then gets an error if there are pending changes.

    It would be great if the question dialog would show how many pending changes there are (and maybe a tooltip with a list of all changed files?). Then, if the user decides to go through with it anyway, the pending changes should be reverted (maybe have a checkbox, so the user is really sure) and the switch should be performed.

    When there are no pending charges, the switch should just happen without…

  16. I propose that Plastic Cloud offers an incremental backup method. It should export backup data to customer-provided cloud storage (AWS S3 / Google Cloud Storage / Azure Storage), perform backups with high frequency (possibly with a combination of full / incremental backups), and only leave the responsibility of validating these backups with the customer.

    Our use case:

    We use Plastic Cloud instead of Plastic Server, because it reduces our operational overhead. Plastic Cloud is great in many ways, but using it means that we also entrust the responsibility of availability, security, as well as backups/disaster recovery with Codice Software.

    As…

  19. If I complete these steps:
    1. Create repos B and A
    2. Commit file foo to repo B (this becomes cs1)
    3. Create xlink /b in repo A as -> cs1@/main@B (writable)
    4. Create branch /main/task001@A
    5. Checkin several files without touching /b

    I can then complete my task branch like this:
    6. Switch workspace to /main@A
    7. Merge from /main/task001

    After this, B will still have only one branch and one changeset, because no changes were made inside of /b. Wonderful!

    Alternately, I can complete my task branch like this:
    6. Merge-To from /main/task001 into /main@A

    This is a…

  20. In the Plastic GUI, "Add format" provides the following options:

    • Branches with pending merges
    • Active branch in this workspace
    • Custom branch query rule
    • Custom changeset query rule
    • Custom label query rule

    cm find, however, supports additional objects beyond "branch", "changeset", and "query". I would like to highlight changesets that contain merge-links from a specific branch, but currently the only way for me to do that is to run the query in the command-line, use the query results to apply attributes, and then use the attributes for a rule that colors the changeset. It would be more straightforward if I could…
