JUMP TO ANOTHER FORUM

  1. The "cm patch" command is able to yield diffs in the standardized "unified diff" or "unix patch" format as console output. However, there is no simple way to yield the same kind of console output for the Pending Changes.

    Our Linux users are demanding this, and they are surprised that it is not currently possible since they are used to this behavior from "cvs diff", "svn diff", "hg diff" and "git diff".

    We suggest adding this functionality to the "cm patch" command. All that's needed is to output the same kind of "unified diff" as usual, but based on the…

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. I would like to be able to mirror a client's Git repository, create a new branch, and then pull changes from the Git repository without pushing my unfinished/proprietary/scratch/experimental branch.

    I have also, from time to time, found myself wanting to clone just a single branch from Git, exclude some branches from Git, or pull everything without pushing anything. All of this is possible in Plastic sync view with Plastic repos, so I thought it would be better to suggest integrating the two instead of suggesting to add these features independently to git-sync.

  14. When it comes to text files, the embedded diff viewer is extremely helpful, allowing me to quickly click between files and see what changed. While it is possible to specify external tools for diffing non-text files, it is currently not possible to do so with the same ease of use or convenience. Embedded Diff and Custom Diff are currently mutually exclusive.

    This request is to add an extensibility mechanism for the embedded diff viewer. I am thinking of this similarly to Windows' IFilter mechanism that allows custom preview renderers to be specified for any file type.

    For example, if I…

  15. When doing a merge that involves a change in a cloaked file (only in the incoming change) the changes are downloaded when resolving conflicts .

    Please add an option to not even show cloaked files coming in from merges or at least to not download them.

  16. 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.

  17. Code Reviews: when responding to a code review, rather than copying and pasting a magic UID into the changelist comment, it would be preferable to be able to browse and select an already submitted changelist that closes a particular comment in a code review.

  18. It would be nice if Plastic threw an error/message saying "File already in use" when trying to merge a binary file with changes only in source contributor(for my specific case), when the file being merged is opened by another application. Right now it fails to merge the file, keeping it in the Pending Changes view, and never merging it or alerting the user that there is an issue.

  20. In branch explorer I zoomed a bit of, to have a greater overview. Unfortunately, the text bubbles above each branch getting smaller. So it's quite hard to read it then.

    Could it be possible to adjust the size in the side panel > Display options?
