Description rptmaestro 2011-02-28 19:01:29 UTC
This is an enhancement request related to the "Project Group" feature of the "Projects" explorer and the "Versioning" menu's "Show Changes" action.

Use Case:

When I switch to a different project group in the Projects explorer, the first thing I do is select my projects and choose "Subversion" > "Show Changes". It would be very useful to have the IDE do this automatically for versioned projects as an additional way of preserving and restoring the user's workspace when a project or project group is opened.

This might be done in one of the following ways:

Option #1: Perhaps the IDE could provide an option in the project settings that a user could check to indicate that he wants the current project to be included in an automatic refresh of the "Show Changes" window.

Option #2: The IDE could restore the "Show Changes" view from the last time the project or project group was opened and refresh it.

Agreed, it has often tripped me up when I switch projects and hit the refresh button within Show Changes and see nothing...only to later realize that I was still looking at the changes for a project in the previously active group!
