Description ulfzibis 2014-06-14 00:57:18 UTC
[ JDK VERSION : 1.7.0_45 ]

   * Invoke Mercurial->Import Changset.

   Only un-hidden objects at visible in file chooser.

   Additionally display .hg folder to ease to find a backup changeset within
.hg folder.
Comment 1 Ondrej Vrabec 2014-06-14 05:44:35 UTC
sorry, .hg folder is hidden by default for a reason. It contains a lot of metadata files crucial for mercurial that user really does not want to edit. If you really want to see the folder, update Tools -> Options -> Misc -> Files and update the regexp hiding .* files (there is already an exception for .hgignore, so you can short that exception simply to .hg)
Comment 2 ulfzibis 2014-07-11 11:11:14 UTC
"Display hidden .hg folder ..." was meant as a kind of easy to implement workaround, so reopen with different Summary:
Provide GUI access to hg "backup changesets".

Justification: There already is GUI access to create backup changesets.

Anyway there is a simple workaround: manually type ".hg" into file chooser to have access to it.
