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 3.9. 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
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 modes:
- 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
Figure 3.10. 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.

- 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 view.
