Description witoldsz 2007-06-04 17:32:24 UTC
Maros Sandor from Sun, talking about changes made in NB6 comparing to NB5 (*):
"We decided to drop Show All, Diff All and other 'All' actions. There is
a simple workaround though, select all projects and invoke Show Changes."

I am not the only one who is really missing that feature. I've never used antyhing 
else than CVS for version control, but it might be very usefull if those actions 
would be available for any version control system, not only CVS.

(*) here is the entire thread:

this one requires more thoughts on right UI approach for proper integration with multiple VCSs
Comment 2 witoldsz 2007-07-09 00:46:02 UTC
The longer I try to use NB6, the more I am missing "the lost feature". And I am not the only one, for example, in my
company every one use this frequently.

If that would be possible to add the "Show all changes" back, that would be great. It could just iterate over the
collection of all opened projects, group them by VCS and invoke "Show ${x} projects changes" for each group instead of
forcing user to select projects nodes manually and invoking above option.
Comment 3 Tomas Stupka 2009-12-08 10:16:20 UTC
the decision was made by our ui engineers to remove the "XXX all" vcs actions. 
1.) too risky and confusing
2.) doesn't seem to be used that much
