New File ... - This operation creates a new file and adds it to version
control. If the selected path is not under version control, the newly created
file will not be added to version control.
New Folder ... - This operation creates a new folder and adds it to
version control. If the selected path is not under version control, the newly
created directory will not be added to version control.
New External Folder ... - This operation sets a folder name in the

repository URL to the folder to which the new external folder will point and
the revision number of that repository URL can be selected easily with the
Browse and History buttons of the
Subversion clients 1.5 and higher support relative external URLs. You can
specify the repository URLs to which the external folders point using the
following relative formats:
../ - Relative to the URL of the
directory on which the svn:externals property is set.
^/ - Relative to the root of the
repository in which the svn:externals property is versioned.
// - Relative to the scheme of the URL
of the directory on which the svn:externals property is set.
/ - Relative to the root URL of the
server on which the svn:externals property is versioned.
- Open - This action will open the selected file in an editor where you
can make modifications to it. The action is active only when a single item is

the external application associated with that file type. In case of a folder the
action opens the selected folder with the system application for folders (for

Copy ... - This action copies resources from the working copy. Each copy

Move ... - This command actually performs as if a copy and then a delete
command were issued. You will find the moved resources at the desired
destination and also at their original location but marked as deleted.
Rename ... - You can only rename a resource at a time. As for the move
command, a copy of the original resource will be made with the new name and
the original will be marked as deleted.
Delete - This action allows you to delete resources from the Subversion
working copy. If unversioned, added or modified resources will be encountered,
a dialog will prompt you to confirm their deletion. This is because their
content cannot be recovered. The action it is not enabled when the selection
contains missing resources.
Copy URL Location - copies the encoded URL for the selected resource from the
Working Copy to the clipboard.
Synchronize view. This is useful
when you have a large working copy and you only want to verify the changes to a
specific part you are currently working on. Synchronize - it contacts the repository and determines the working
copy and the repository changes made to the selected resources. It displays the
result of the operation in the
- Refresh - This action will rescan the selected resources recursively
and refresh their status in the working copy view.
- Cleanup - performs a maintenance cleanup operation to the selected
resources from the working copy. This operation removes the Subversion maintenance
locks that were left behind. Useful when you already know where the problem
originated and want to fix it as quickly as possible. Only active for resources
under version control.
Update - This command updates your selected resources from the working copy to
the HEAD revision from the repository (latest modifications). It the same as the
update action from the Synchronize view in that also brings you
the HEAD revision from the repository. If a directory is involved it will be updated
depending on its depth. The action is active only on resources that are under
Update to revision/depth - This action allows you to update the selected
resources from the working copy to an earlier revision from the repository. You can
also select the update depth for the current folder. You can
find out more about the depth term in the sparse
checkouts section. The action is active only on resources under version
Commit - This action collects the outgoing changes from the selected resources
in the working copy and presents them in a dialog. Then you can choose exactly what
to commit by selecting or unselecting resources accordingly. A directory will always
be committed recursively. The unversioned resources will be deselected by default.
In the commit dialog you will also have to enter a commit comment before sending
your changes to the repository.
Revert - Undoes all local changes for the selected resources. It does not
contact the repository, the files will be obtained from Subversion's pristine copy.
It is enabled only for modified resources. Read the Revert your changes section for more information.
Edit conflict - opens a Compare view for editing the
selected conflict. For more information on editing conflicts, please see Edit conflicts section.
Mark resolved - This action is only enabled on conflicted
resources and its function is to tell the Subversion system that you resolved the
conflict. See the section Merge
Latest from HEAD - This action will perform a 3-way diff operation between
the selected file and the HEAD revision from the repository and will display
the result in the Compare view. The common ancestor of the 3-way diff
operation is the BASE version of the file from the local working copy.
BASE revision - This will compare the working copy file with the file from
the pristine copy (BASE revision).
Revision - This command will bring to front the History view with the log
history for that resource.
Branch/Tag - This will compare the working copy file with a revision of
the file from a branch or tag. The revision is specified by URL (selected with
a repository browser dialog) and revision number (selected with a revision
Each other - This action only works when two files are selected. It will
compare the two selected files with each other.
These actions are enabled only if the selected resource is a
Latest from HEAD - This action will try to replace the selected resources
with their versions from the HEAD revision of the repository.
BASE revision - This action will try to replace the selected resources
with their versions from the pristine copy (the BASE revision).
The dialog above is presenting the resources that have content or properties
locally modified, so that the user will be aware that will lose any uncommitted
In some cases it is impossible to replace the current selected resources with
their versions from the BASE/HEAD revision.
For Replace with BASE revision action, the
resources being unversioned or added have no BASE revision, but when selecting a
parent folder of this type of resources, they will be removed. The action will
never work for missing folders or for obstructing files (folders being obstructed
by a file), because you cannot recover a tree of folders.
For Replace with latest from HEAD action,
you must be aware that any resource being unversioned, added, obstructed,
modified, currently added to svn:ignore or currently being present in the working
copy as a result of updating a folder on which was added a svn:externals property,
without these properties being committed to the repository before, will be
completely deleted or reverted to BASE revision and after that updated to HEAD
revision, to avoid obtaining conflicts when updating.

For more details about resource history see the sections Using the resource history view and Request history for a resource. Show History ... - It will display the

representation of a resource's history. For more details about a resource's revision
graph see the section
Add - This operation adds the selected resources to version control. A directory
will be added recursively to version control. It is not mandatory to explicitly add
resources to version control but it is recommended. At commit time unversioned
resources will have to be manually selected in the commit dialog. It is only active
on unversioned resources.
Add to svn:ignore ... - This action can only be performed on resources not under
version control. It allows you to keep inside your working copy files that should
not participate to the version control operations. The action actually modifies the
value of the svn:ignore property of the resource's parent
Properties view and displays the SVN properties for the selected
resource. Show SVN Properties - brings up the
