  1. Add an "Actual Size" zoom button to the BrEx tool bar. Also, add three auto zoom buttons, "Fit Horizontally on Screen", "Fit Vertically on Screen", and "Fit on Screen".

    On a side note: the house icon in the BrEx isn't a vector graphic, so as you zoom in it becomes pixelated. Possibly replace it with a vector graphic so it looks just as smooth as the rest of the BrEx graphics.

  2. It happens from time to time that you think you are working on some branch when actually you are on another.

    What I usually do in such a scenario is:
    1. check in on wrong branch.
    2. switch to correct branch.
    3. cherry pick from wrong to correct branch.
    4. copy the merged file(s)
    5. delete new change set created on correct branch created by cherrypick.
    6. copy the files back to the workspace (or just paste from clipboard if it was a single file).
    7. check in the changes (now properly set in the correct branch).
    8. delete the…

  3. As each branch should have a defined role and may or may not interact with other branches plastic scm needs a workflow management system (I'm inspired by Jira) which allows definitions of branch roles and let's call it "change/information flow" rules.

    This would provide a way to define which branch can be merged into another branch and which can't!

    Each branch then needs a role assigned at creation time. Even here the workflow rules could define which roles may be given to a branch created from another branch wich a given role.

  4. Support for LDAP queries (including OR operator) that would allow better specificity in configuring access control to repo server.

  5. The "Explain Merge" functionality is currently only available while performing a merge, and not in retrospect when looking at an existing changeset containing one or more merges.

    I suggest adding this functionality to the "Diff changeset" view as well. it could be activated by context menu on a "Merged from ..." changelist header.

  6. I would like to view pending changes not group by C, A, M but as a list that has the full path to the item with an icon or other indicator for status (C,A,M). Sometimes I am working on different things for debugging or testing and I want to ignore those changes. If the list was just sorted by complete filename it would be easy to see and ignore certain changes.

  7. There needs to be a user right that controls if a user or user group can delete other peoples "Shelves".

    As it could be possible to delete another person's shelf by accident, and there is no way of undoing that deletion. This would be especially important when the shelf itself contains a large number of changes which would take a while to redo.

    Deleting of your own shelf is OK.

  8. When server maintenance is due, it would be great to know if any client is still connected to the server.
    You may add a new cm-command for that or you implement a shiny info screen on the server.

  9. Pending changes view DELETE menu, add option to "remove files from version control"

    IN Workspace explorer/files, Delete has two options, "delete files on disk" and "remove file(s) from version control".
    In Pending changes view, Delete will only delete on disk. However this is IMHO the more likely place you would discover files that are controlled but should be excluded!

    This thread should explain: http://www.plasticscm.net/index.php?/topic/1991-how-do-i-ignoreexclude-directories-that-have-already-been-checked-in/

    Windows GUI and gtkplastic 5.4.16.918

    [ I can't fully test exact behaviour right now because my server is offline at this moment installing updates. Lots of updates... ]

  10. It would be wonderful to have a feature where you can specify inside Plastic when a branch is ready to be merged and the task is done!

    I'm trying to use the Task Per Branch and it's kind of annoying ask the others about the status of a task or a group of tasks.

    Something like "change the branch's background color" to set it as a ended task.

    You could expand this idea and integrate your own Task Management System. :)

  14. Hi, please change the comments seperator from "" to something less frequently used. We have A LOT of files with a "" in the file name and refering to them in a comment isn't that easy when "_" is the seperator ;)

  15. Show a list of all files before you add them to the source control. sometimes i need to keep a file back for some reason and add it some time later.
    Also the add tree to sc action is very opaque. it doesn't even create a new changeset!!! i never know which files i realy added.

  16. Right now the preferences for diff and merge for external tools has a help modal dialog that is difficult to work with. Building the command line is repetition of modify and click on the help to make sure things are being typed correctly.

    Suggest that instead it's a drop down dialog that populates the variable into the edit box as selected.

  18. When different branches are selected, the custom extension task information is updated in the options pane. However, when changesets are selected, the pane doesn't update. It just leaves whatever information had been in there. Even if the changeset is on a different pane.

  19. It would be great if I could save a compairing to a file and view it later again.

    Use case: I compaire to branches with a lot of changes. I will need some time to do this and want to do it later.

    Or: I want to show a compair/diff to somebody.

  20. Is it possible to specify the name of the workspace that is created for a build configuration when using Plastic 5.x with TeamCity 8.x? Currently a workspace is dynamically created with the name tc### where the number actually correlates to the primary key of the vcsroot_instance stored in the TeamCity configuration. What this means is that every time we update the parameter for the build configuration that contains the name of the Plastic branch we wish to use, Plastic tries to create a new workspace. This is a problem because the same folder is being used and already…
