I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. annotate whitespace and eol options

    As far as I can see, the GUI is missing the useful --ignore options from the command line.

    • Add intelli-sense/auto-complete to search and filter boxes.

      This would help people learn syntax i think.

      • Collapse all/open all tree-views with Alt-click

        The tree view in Pending Changes gives a much better overview/visual structure to the things that were modified. However, per default everything is always collapsed. So for each new change one needs to click-open every single hierarchy level by hand, to reach the assets that were actually changed...

        All other tree views (Items, Branches, ...) are affected similarly, and would greatly benefit from such a hotkey.

        I suggest to use Alt-click, as for example, Unity uses that same method to selectively and recursively collapse/open subtrees.

        • When merging have a single clicke way to resolve all conflicts using one of the contributors

          Basically a shortcut to take one of the 3 versions (source, base, destination) as a result one.

          Described in more detail in the end of http://www.plasticscm.net/index.php?/topic/1200-exception-during-3-way-merge-when-pasting-big-text/

            • The LABEL list should contain the branch on which it is defined

              This info is missing from both the label list and the trigger.

              The only way to get the branch name from a label is to perform a two step operation: Check on which changeset it is set and then look for that changeset branch (in the changeset list).

              • "Cherry pick" to

                Just like the "advanced merge to", allow the user to cherry pick to any branch.

                This allow the user to avoid switching to the branch he want to cherry pick to, which can be very time consuming (reimporting workspace in a game engine for exemple).

                • create shelve from changeset

                  You should add a way to shelve a already checked-in changeset. This way a checkin on the wrong branch could be shelved, deleted and then applied to the correct branch.

                  • merge related improvements for pending changes view

                    After performing a merge it would be useful if the pending changes had some merge specific content:

                    1) show which files were merged entirely automatically and which required manual intervention. Currently the 'Status' column shows "Replaced / Merge from ..." or "Checked-out / Merge from ...". I'm guessing the replaced corresponds to files that only changed on the source and checked out is for both manual and automatic merges?

                    2) Provide menu items for comparing the merged file (workspace revision) to one of: base, source, destination. Currently "Diff revisions..." defaults to the last but does not make it easy to…

                    • Allow an overall comment to be entered against a code review

                      Sometimes when looking at a code review making comments against individual lines is not appropriate. The implementer might have got the design/architecture or pattern wrong. It would help to be able to record a comment at a top level against the review to allow an audit trail without having to go through all the line by line comments. For example. Design and implementation ok, no security has been considered and there are weaknesses so needs rework. Minor code comments as recorded, but review abandoned due to high level issues.

                      • Include a preference to override all unchecked pending changes in workspace on check-in.

                        I know this was the default behavior a couple of versions ago, and it was extremely advantageous for our team because we tend to have a lot of files (XML data and such) that get changed but we don't intend to preserve those changes.

                        We had been in the habit of checking in only our relevant changes, and it's been a big change to our workflow to have to either undo all pending changes first, or deal with the merges that ensue. If there was an option to prefer the old behavior it would be a big help!

                        • Commenting xlink changes in code review

                          "Xlink changes cannot be commented" - that message shows up when you try to comment a change in an xlinked file (in a code review). IMHO it would be much easier if xlinked files could be commented just like other files.

                          • Add git like staging

                            I encountered on several occasions already that what was displayed in pending changes did not match the actual state of files being committed. The reason being that changes are not automatically updated in the UI, but upon commit new changes are automatically collected using default behavior of changed files being committed, added, moved and deleted files must be selected manually - meaning the latter will not be part of such commit. The minimum thing that could be done is to notify the user that there are undisplayed changes that need to be reviewed. Even better would be to add git…

                            • Line wrap (word/character) in embedded diff view

                              This is a very useful feature for diffs with long lines.

                              Now that we have matching inside a line, this would be a natural follow up. With this, there would no longer be any need for horizontal scrollbars in diff view.

                                • In branch explorer, allow a changset to be dragged from one branch to another to merge it whereever you want.

                                  This would make merges much slicker, by saving all of the RMB clicking.

                                  • New preference: "Always undo unchanged on Refresh in Pending Changes"

                                    When working in the Visual Studio plugin, changed files are always Checked-out when saved. If you re-save a file after restoring it to original contents (by Ctrl+Z or tweak-untweak a value etc), it's still Checked-out and will still appear in Pending Changes with a "Files are identical" Diff. The preference "Compare file contents instead of timestamps when determining Changed status" does not help here as the file is explicitly checked out.

                                    There is an "Undo unchanged" command but it's dangerously close to the "Undo changes" button. It would be nice to have the option to always perform a silent "Undo…

                                    • Show attributes in branch tooltip

                                      It would be great to see all attributes set on a branch somewhere else then the 'attributes' panel. Not I have to change the side panel from 'Properties' to 'Attributes' to see which attributes are set on a given branch.
                                      To speed this up, it sure is nice to see attributes in the branch tooltip.
                                      What you'd say about that?

                                      • filetypes.conf has immediate effect and can be per repository

                                        As a developer, I can specify what is the type (text/binary) of file with a given extension. But, I want PlasticSCM to immediately apply these settings to the current workspace (only new files are affected). Also, it would be convenient that a filetypes.conf placed in the root dir of repository to have the same effect for this specific repo, on the top of global settings (as for ignore.conf).

                                        • option to cancel workspace update

                                          A workspace update can be quite slow, particularly if you made a mistake in cloaked.conf. Rather than killing the process, it would be nice to be able to cancel the update.
