Description crosati 2016-01-11 10:48:46 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 8.1 (Build 201510222201)
Operating System = Mac OS X version 10.11.2 running on x86_64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.8.0_66
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.66-b17

Reproducibility: Happens every time

In the Git Repository Browser, add to the Local/Remote branch context menu the "Switch To Branch..." command, to switch to the selected branch. The command should open the Switch To Selected Branch dialog with the branch selected in the browser already selected in the dialog
Comment 1 Ondrej Vrabec 2016-01-11 12:11:46 UTC
There's already "Checkout Revision" on a branch node, I don't see any benefit in adding Switch To... when it practically does the same.
Comment 2 crosati 2016-01-11 18:54:09 UTC
Is "Checkout Revision" exactly the same of "Switch To Branch..."?

If yes, why not calling it ""Switch To Branch..." for coherence with the main GIT menu?

If not, please add it.
