Description Christian Lenz 2017-02-28 12:11:10 UTC
Because that git for example and the other version control systems, have a lot of commands which could be used in the editor too, we need a dedicated popup with most common VCS operations as WebStorm or IntelliJ has:

Right from the editor itself, it is possible to choose any VCS option, withoug using the context menu (On smaller screens you have problems, if you have a lot of stuff in the context menu). And without selecting the project -> right click -> search for git (e.g.) -> select the operation -> select another operation and and and. It is to heavy and user unfriendly.

The Team menu entry is ok but a dedicated popup like go to symbol, file and so on, would be better, because you don't have to switch with the mouse between your editor and the menubar.

Here is a little video from WebStorm too:

This should be possible for SVN, Mercurial and CVS too, but for this, we can create other tickets.
