  1. After marking multiple files and choosing Undo, the warning message only states that "You are going to undo X changes". This helps catch issues of undoing significantly more or less files than you intended, but doesn't help if a single critical file was accidentally included in the list of files to undo.

    I'd suggest listing the full path of all of the files that are going to be affected by the undo command on that warning message.

  2. I've had a few issues with people accidentally clicking the undo changes button (it's right next door to checkin).

    can we have those undone files that get overridden sent to the recycle bin

  3. It would be nice in the Plastic SCM GUI to be able to change the order of the merge views. I work with a lot of projects and some fall out of relevancy more than others at time, so I'd like to be able to keep my most active views on the top for easy access.

  4. The Language Server Protocol was developed by Microsoft to allow the integration of external language with Microsoft tools, such as Visual Studio Code. The protocol is open source, and has been gaining traction especially with the growing popularity of Visual Studio code. It is being implemented by several organizations to provide support for both open source and proprietary languages. For example, Salesforce uses LSP to provide syntax highlighting and Intellisense in Visual Studio Code for their Apex language.

  5. Having autocomplete function in gmaster would be very beneficial.

    GMaster already knows about what changed. I believe creating a list of possible words to be used in the commit summary or body, along with a list of file names changed/added shouldn't be difficult. Then such a list can be used to suggest names to users as they type commit messages in GMaster.

    Hopefully, this feature is carried over to the Visual Studio plugin. Since the included Team Explorer from MS does not support such a feature.

  6. It is relatively easy and intuitive to undo changes in the working copy in gmaster using the x button next to the change. Expanding on that feature, I suggest adding such a button for recognized blocks of code, such as: types, classes, methods, fields.

  7. Since using branches for tasks is the preferred workflow I think it'd be useful to be able to copy the branch name from the changeset ui so we can easily goto our project management software.

    or at the very least a way to go directly to that branch from the changeset view instead of having to look for it.

  8. Currently the Gluon Update Report pane displays the timestamp at the beginning of the report. This means that to find out the last time you synced you have to scroll up through a variable, and sometimes large, list of entries to find the timestamp while making sure that you don't overshoot it and end up in the previous update report.

    I suggest moving it to the end of the report where the most recent sync time can always be easily found and quickly accessible.

  10. I hear from my designer-y people that they'd like to be able to experiment with features before checking them in to the cloud. Naturally this can be done with branches with the regular plastic, but I'd like for them to keep utilizing the simplicity of gluon.

    I don't have a solid suggestion as to how to implement this, but as an alternative to checkin you could provide a "experimental checkin" action. Gluon still behaves as normal, but these checkins are only present for the user. When the user is done experimenting, they can checkin their experimental changesets to the cloud…

  11. When I am in a workspace that is linked to SomeRepo@SomeCompany@cloud, and I create a new XLink, the XLink dialogue by default has Target Server set to local, and Use Relative Server set to true. These are incompatible! Either relative shouldn't be checked by default, or the server default should match the workspace's server. I think the latter option is more convenient for most use cases.

  12. Update the Conflict Resolution dialog to include additional information about the conflict.

    In particular, it would be helpful during a branch merge to know which branch is being considered as the Source and which is the Destination.

    In the attached example, it would be helpful to know that the Delete operation occurred on the /develop branch, and the change operation occurred on the /develop/tileeffectsupdate child branch.

    This will further clarify and confusion about which action to perform.

  13. Currently it's difficult to tell if a file has been checked-out and modified or is just checked-out as a mark for modification in the pending changes view.

    It would be nice if I could, at a glance see the Checked-out (Unchanged) or Checked-out (Changed) instead of having to run 'Undo Changes -> Undo unchanged' before almost every checkin.

    Perhaps changing the file icon from an orange exclamation to green if it's Checked-out (Unchanged)

  14. Having a live log of gitsync processing files (not just the ring/percentage, and steps).
    There's many occasions on which it stays for 10, 20 minutes on the same % and it's hard to know if it's not working or simply processing more or less files.

  15. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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
    Jiri Kohutka
