By default, IntelliJ IDEA suggests you to check out the latest (HEAD) revision to work with. However, you can synchronize your local working copy with any previous revision from the repository.
Make sure that the CVS root field is filled in with valid data.
- In the Use Version section of the CVS
Roots dialog box, select the criterion
to search for the desired version. The available options are:
- By tag
- By date
- Click the Browse button
next to the selected option
and do one of the following depending on the selected search criterion:
- If you have selected By tag, select the desired tag from the list of tags that opens. The list displays the tags obtained from the CVS server according to the specified CVS root string.
- If you have selected By date, select the date and time in the calendar that opens.
You can also type the desired revision number, tag, or date in the text box next to the selected option.
