Using the resource history view
The History view provides a set of actions you can use to get
even more information about the project history and make changes to your working copy
related with older revisions.
History actions available in the popup menu displayed by a right click in the view when a single resource is selected:
Compare with working copy - compares the selected revision
with your working copy file. It is enabled only when you select a file.
Open - opens the selected revision of the file into the
Editor. This is enabled only for files.
Open With... - Displays the 'Open with...' dialog for
specifying the editor in which the selected file revision will be opened. This is
enabled only for files.
Get Contents - replace the current content of the local
version of the selected file with the content of the selected revision.
Save revision to... - saves the selected revision to a file
so you have an older version of that file. This option is available only when you
access the history of a file, and it saves a version of that one file only.
Revert changes from this revision - reverts changes which
were made in the selected revision. The changes are reverted in your working copy so
this operation does not affect the repository file! The action will undo the changes
made only in selected revision. It does not replace your working copy file with the
entire file at the earlier revision. This is useful for undoing an earlier change
when other unrelated changes have been made since the date of the revision. This
option is enabled when the resource history was launched for a local working copy
Update to revision - updates your working copy resource to
the selected revision. Useful if you want to have your working copy reflect a time
in the past. It is best to update a whole directory in your working copy, not just
one file, otherwise your working copy will be inconsistent and you will be unable to
commit your changes.
Check out from revision... - gets the content of the
selected revision for the resource into local file system.
Show Annotation... - brings up a dialog for selecting the
start revision and the end revision of the interval of revisions for which the SVN
annotations will be computed and marked in the selected resource in the editor
panel. This option is available only when you access the history of a file.
Change - allows you to change some commit
information for a file.
