Configuring Subversion Branches
IntelliJ IDEA integration with Subversion provides the capability to compose a list of parent folders of the branches you work with. This list will be displayed every time you perform any kind of a branch operation, for example, to synchronize your working copy, compare branches, etc.
Branches are configured in the Configure Subversion Branches dialog box.

To open the Configure Subversion Branches dialog box, do one of the following
- In the Changes tool window, open the Subversion Working Copies Information tab, and then click the Configure Branches link.
- On the main menu, choose VCS | Subversion | Update File/Directory , or VCS | Update Project .
- In the Update Project/Directory dialog box that opens, click the Browse button or press Shift+Enter to select the path to the target branch.

In the Branch Locations area, compose a list of folders under which the branches you need in your work are stored.
