  • Flag Feature

    I've been using BC to do some complicated merges between version branches of source code. The folder view is great for managing this. One feature that would be really handy would be to have a flag or a comment field for a given comparision. I want to be able to "flag" a given file compare after I've done the merging for those files. This way, I'll know what I have already merged, and what is left to merge. The flag could be an icon, or an alternate text/background color. A comment field would improve this, as I could leave some detailed notes for myself.

    My work around for this right now is to just exclude the files from the view after the merge. It works, but a flag would be much cleaner.

    The only feature similar to this in the current version is the "Actions > Ignored" command. It will treat files as matching even though they are different. However, once marked it doesn't indicate the files are ignored, so I will add this to our wish list for a future version.

      Suggestion: When ignored, why not change the "not equal" icon () to black (). This would be a visual reminder that the files are ignored.

        I wish we could get back the ignored-handling we had in early Cirrus-days with a separate green toggle button to show/hide them and not treating ignored files as equal but as they are (binary different/unimportant differences/...).

        I think I posted this in the private beta phase in the old forum before.

          I just found the thread from the old forum starting at February 19th, 2007 at 2:29 am.

          I suggest adding a toolbar button like 'Ignore Unimportant Differences' as 'Show Ignored'. This should show all ignored files if pressed, independent from the other display filters. In combination with 'Show None' pressed only ignored files will be visible.
          I would like to have a green square in front of the name and the name and the comparision result (middle column) should follow the comparision state (black/red/blue).

            Lutz and Michael,

            Thanks for the feedback on this idea, we've added your comments to our wish list entry relating to ignored items.

              Can you tell us whether a flag feature is still being considered? Like amp44x I believe it would be very useful.
