This page allows disabling warning messages which may appear in the application.

Show warning dialog when editing conflicts

If checked, when the Edit Conflicts action is executed in the SVN Client, a dialog will be shown that warns you that the action will overwrite the conflicted version of the file created by an update operation. The conflicted file will be overwritten with the version of the same file which existed in the working copy before the update operation and then proceeds with the visual editing of the conflict file. If the button Cancel is pressed in this warning dialog the Edit Conflicts action is aborted.

Show confirmation dialog for drag and drop actions in Working Copy

Set this option to avoid doing a drag and drop when you just want to select multiple files in the Working Copy view and run the same action on all selected files, for example a Copy or a Commit.
