IntelliJ IDEA 13.1.0 Web Help

Though Subversion integration enables you to successfully modify and merge files, changed by different team members, sometimes it makes sense to lock files (for example, images) to avoid overwriting changes.

To lock a file
  1. Select the desired file or open it in the editor.
  2. Choose VCS | Subversion | Lock on the main menu or Subversion | Lock on the context menu of the selection.
  3. In the Lock File dialog box that opens specify the lock name.

    Tip

    To forcibly break the lock set by somebody else, select the Steal Existing Lock check box.

To remove lock from a file
  1. Select the desired file or open it in the editor.
  2. Choose VCS | Subversion | Unlock on the main menu or Subversion | Unlock on the context menu of the selection.
