VCS | Mercurial | Branches | New Bookmark
context menu of the Editor - Mercurial | Branches | New Bookmark
Use this dialog box to establish a new light-weight Mercurial branch (bookmark). The bookmark will immediately appear in the Branches pop-up. You can create both active and inactive bookmarks. By default, IntelliJ IDEA creates an active bookmark, so you are immediately switched to the new bookmark and it is marked with a tick in the Branches pop-up. If you do not want to want to move your development to the new bookmark right now, you can create an inactive bookmark and switch to it later. Note, that tracking and updating is available only for the bookmark that is currently active. You can have only one active bookmark. For details, see http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/Bookmarks and Managing Mercurial Branches and Bookmarks.
|Bookmark Name||In this text box, type the name of the book,ark. This identifier will always point at the head of the the new light-weight branch as you commit changes. You can use this name to identify the head of the relevant light-weight branch when during update or merge.|
