Synchronize with the repository
In the work cycle you will need to incorporate other people's changes(update)
and to make your own work available to others(commit). This is what the Synchronize View was designed for, to help you
send and receive modifications from the repository.
Figure 3.18. Synchronize View
In the Synchronize view you can see the overall status of
your working copy resources when compared to the repository resources. The view
focuses on incoming and outgoing changes, where incoming changes are the changes
that other users have committed since you last updated your working copy. The
outgoing changes are the modifications you made to your working copy as a result
of editing, removing or adding resources.
The view presents the status of the working copy resources against the BASE
revision after a Refresh operation. You can view the state
of the resources versus a repository HEAD revision by using the
Synchronize actions from the Working Copy view.
The Synchronize view has three presentation
- Tree mode
The resources are presented in a tree layout as in the above
image which mirrors the tree structure of the SVN repository and
of the Working Copy
view. This mode is more appropriate when you want a
quick overview of the locations which need synchronization with
the SVN repository or when you want to apply a synchronization
operation (Commit, Update, Revert, Add)
recursively on a folder.
Figure 3.19. Synchronize View - Tree mode
- Compressed mode
The resources are presented in a layout with two levels, that
is a compressed path for each folder in the list as in the
following image. This mode is useful when you need the full list
of resources which need synchronization without having to expand
a tree to get to the unsynchronized resources of that folder.
Also it is useful when you do not want to apply a
synchronization operation recursively, that is the operation
applied to a folder resource must not have any effect on other
unsynchronized resources located in the folder but displayed in
other list entries in the view.
Figure 3.20. Synchronize View - Compressed mode
- Flat mode
The full list of the resources that must be synchronized with
the repository are presented in a flat list. As in the
Compressed mode it is useful when you do not want to apply a
synchronization operation recursively on a folder.

Switching between the three presentation modes is done with the switch
button on the right side of the toolbar of the Synchronize
