  2. When I am working distributed I am often without connection to our issue tracker. This means that I have to use a temporary naming scheme for new branches. When I later sync with the main repository I may not have created the issues in the tracker yet. When I do, I have to rename all branches in all replications which is easily forgotten, thus leaving the different replications with differently named branches.

    Obviously this is a mess, so it would be really nice, if Plastic synchronized branch name changes. If there is a rename conflict, I would be fine if…

  3. We have started to use writable xlinks in most projects. To replicate a project we create sync views that contains targets for all xlinked projects.
    However, I cannot find a way to synchronize a whole view. I have to refresh each target, right click and synchronize, wait until synchronizing finish, repeat for all targets.

    Preferably syncing multiple repositories would be a one-click affair, but the current procedure is tedious and easily error prone.

    The common scenario for me is this: I make a few changes on my laptop while commuting. At work I sync the laptop with the main repository…

  5. The "file move detection" should only compare files with same extension. It's not useful to compare "a.gif" with "b.jpg" and display "moved from a.gif to b.jpg" with a similatity of 90%.
    File extensions do normally not change (maybe only in some cases).

  7. A couple of times I had problems with multi project solutions that i was about to check-in files into the wrong repository.

    Therefor, Could you add the name of the repository to the check-in dialog so it's easier to determine which repo is used?

  8. When working in the mode that uses the Read-Only attribute as flag for check-in I would like to have an option (a read-write files list like the cloacked list) of files that should be kept R/W after checkin.

    Some developer tools like VS and Borland Delphi have files that are hard to find in the project managers but need to be writeable for correct operations (there are some in VS2K10's installer projects and some of the Delphi project files like the *.dsk files are best kept R/W)

  9. All 4.1.10.X versions do the same. A few seconds after a file which was not checked out is saved looks like Plastic tries to checkout the file asynchronously and locks up Visual Studio.

    This happens 10 out of 10 times with me.

    Fixed. The fix will be available in the next Plastic SCM release, that will be published along this week (two or three days).

  12. 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.

  13. Click on "Branches".
    Add a new attribute to a branch.
    Switch to the Branch Explorer.
    There is no "Attributes" tab. :(

  14. When open a file (max, jpg, bmp, ...) it would be great to detect if the user has the Lattest version. If not a window could PopUp and ask if we want to update the file or not. That way everyone will work on the lattest version for sure

  15. The diff dialogue needs a context menu to revert files. Because otherwise you merge and then you have to go through the item view to try and track down the files, kind of painful.

  16. 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..

  17. Hi,

    I would like to be able to get the mapping of repositories on the databse (or tables) without opering the repositories.plastic.sdf database.

    This database however only contains the still present repositories.

    I found no way (yet) to detemine where the workspace name of a delete repository database.

  18. The toolbar on top of the client becomes unsable when you have 20+ workpaces (as proposed in the one workspace per project/component).

    Maybe for keywords (as proposed in Group workspaces (and repositories) it would work again for a while.

  19. At present it will use whatever the OS default is, it would be nice to be able to custimize this within Plastic, e.g. a simple table of file extension versus application (don't forget to allow for files with no extension, e.g. INSTALL, README, etc). This would make life easier fot instances where no defaul is even set (e.g. my Linux VM), and also cases where by default I want to edit files in Plastic but run them in my OS (e.g. script files).

  20. Allow the user to close a workspace tab, without it being removed from the All Workspaces list. Should then be able to re-open the workspace from the All Workspaces list.
