  1. automated replication

    I'm working on a main computer and a laptop for when i'm on the road.
    When i'm working on my laptop I would like to have it automatically push changes to my other computer or the central server when I check-in a change-set.

    Also i would like to be able to subscribe to a repo of specific branches so it automatically pulls changesets from the central server or the computer.

        • Improve vertical ordering in Branch Explorer, make use of hierarchy

          The default ordering of branches in Branch Explorer could be improved. It should respect and make use of the branch hierarchy, so as not to cross lines unnecessarily.

          When I have several top-level branches with some child branches each, they are not grouped together vertically in a hierarchically logical order. Instead they seem to be randomly placed (?) leading to a lot of lines crossing each other. (I always enable "Display cross-branch changeset links" which makes this more obvious.)

          I think child branches should always be displayed below their immediate parent (or sibling if multiple children overlap in time).

          • Keep typed comment when closing checkin dialog without commit.

            Sometimes i type comment for a checkin but then discover some issues in the list of files that force me to close the dialog (loosing the already typed comments).

            The current woraround is to open notepad and copy the comment into it for later use. But that is rather clumsy.

            So request is that when you close the commit dialog without commit the typed comment is added to the dropdown list of previous comments (or is just restored when the dialog is re-opened for the same workspace).

            • Add support for namespace in "find branch" command

              Currently, finding a branch by namespace is not possible. Even worse, [find branch where name = 'main'] returns 1 branch, but [find branch where name = '/main'] returns none!

              Please add full namespace support so we can find branches by complete name, such as [find branch where name = '/main/task001/subtask_1'].

              This request originates from the following forum post:

              http://www.plasticscm.net/index.php?/topic/2003-add-an-attribute-to-a-newly-created-branch-changeset/

              • Add Gluon support for Linux

                Our entire team are going Linux only for development since Epic now support it with Unreal 4, so support for Gluon on Linux would be wonderful for us.

                • Repository description

                  Add a description property to a repository and add it as a column to the repository browser to allow for a long description to give detailed information about the contents of the repo. Repo names tend to be short and don't always explain what the repo contains, especially when there are 100's of repo's for different projects.

                    • Add progress bars to Merging / Save revision as windows.

                      Save revision as freezes the entire Plastic SCM client while it downloads the file from the server and saves it on disk. This unacceptable, especially for big files.

                      Progress bars must be added to Merging / Save revision as windows so users can see, well, the progress of the operation, and not wonder did it get stuck or something. Especially for people with slow internet connections.

                      • Integrate the Repository configuration (plastic configuration wizard) with the Plastic UI.

                        Currently, to use a different repository server, you have to run the configuration wizard multiple times.

                        It would be much more convenient to be able to open the Plastic SCM tool and click "add new server..." or "select repositories from server..." so that the user can choose where to get a list of repositories (projects) to work with - and start creating workspaces to pull the project down to.

                        The following is a scenario I ran into:
                        1) I created a local plastic server to replace my personal CVS server for projects that I work on at home. Using the…

                        • Update Office Plugin

                          Currently, the Plastic SCM installer provides an option to include plugins for various IDEs as well as Office.

                          The Office Plugin support is provided for 2003, 2007, and 2010. Noting that the year is 2016, and that two releases of Office have occurred since then, the plugin should be updated to work with the latest versions.

                          Additionally, the Office Plugin doesn't have quite the same "polish" and "style" that the rest of Plastic has when running on Windows, so it could use some touching up.

                          Finally, if this isn't a priority - and since it really exists to integrate with…

                          • Add "Update Cloaked" (and "Update Forced") to Items context menu.

                            If i have items or xlinks specified in cloaked.conf, the only way to force an update of these is to:

                            * either removed them from cloaked.conf before "Update workspace"

                            * or run "cm update --cloaked <path>" from the command line.

                            NOTE: Contrary to old documentation, running the "cm update --forced <path>" command will not update cloaked stuff.

                            I suggest adding a "Update Cloaked" command to the context menu in the Items view. Maybe also an "Update Forced" command, but this is probably less important.

                            • Possibility to undo checkout without loosing file content changes

                              Let the user undo a checkout without loosing the modifications themselves. The result would be a file with status "Changed".
                              Neither the content nor the file's timestamp should change by this operation.
                              Currently, undoing a checkout always results in downloading the versioned content.

                              • VS plugin: Add in-editor diff markers with associated commands

                                We were using the VisualSVN plugin for Visual Studio before, and we miss the excellent "Quick Diff" feature: https://www.visualsvn.com/visualsvn/features/

                                This feature replaces/enhances the "Track Changes" markers in the Visual Studio code editor with colored lines (in the left margin), to indicate blocks of lines that are changed relative to the latest changeset (different colors for modified, added, deleted). It also adds commands (revert block, navigate prev/next change block).

                                There are some other (open source) plugins that offer similar functionality: "Git Diff Margin", "TfsPendingChangesMargin", "HgVS".

                                • Show at least one changeset in queries

                                  With some (external) repositories last changes are sometimes so long ago that nothing shows up in for example the xlink changeset selector.

                                  So please show at least the last release if the query does not return results. This behavior should also be implemented for other query based views. Maybe with a switch in the preference to turn it on/off.

                                  • keyboard shortcut or toolbar button to toggle "Display only relevant changesets"

                                    I frequently want to change this in branch explorer, and it involves too many mouse clicks.

                                    • Add the ability to tag repositories

                                      Similar to the request to group workspaces and repositories (https://plasticscm.uservoice.com/forums/15467-general/suggestions/2772036-group-workspaces-and-repositories) but not quite the same.
                                      Using submodules to group repos limits you to a single classification of a repository. Ideally you are able to tag a repository with several keywords like you do on a forum or an article. This would allow us to tag a repository with 'real-time control' or 'imaging algorithm' but also tag it with a product name that uses it or the programming language that it is written in.
                                      This would necessitate a new repository view in the client where instead of a list…

                                      • Add an option to hide merge info in the diff viewer

                                        I remember that a couple of years ago you added a new feature to the diff viewer which let's you trace merges made on files. Let's consider the following scenario. You work in a branch for some time, but at some point you want to update your code to it's latest state, because your task already takes days or weeks. So you create a new branch from the latest changeset on \main and merge your existing branch you the newly created one.

                                        Then you modify a file in the new branch, that was already modified earlier in the first branch.…

                                        • Prevent closing out of focus semantic merge on escape

                                          Application will close if you press escape while it's out of focus. This is annoying if you do some back and forth between semantic merge and another application while doing you diff.
