IntelliJ IDEA 13.1.0 Web Help

From within IntelliJ IDEA, you can create and delete CVS tags and branches. The names of the tags and branches must start with a letter, and contain only alphanumeric characters.

Branch and tag commands apply to all the files you have selected in the current view (including all the files in any selected directory), or to the current file in the editor if you invoked the command there.

This section describes how to:

To access tags and branches commands

  2. Do one of the following:
    • On the main menu, choose VCS | CVS
    • On the context menu, choose CVS
  3. On the submenu, choose the appropriate command (Create Branch, Create Tag, or Delete Tag)
To create a branch
  1. Invoke the Create Branch command.
  2. In the Create Branch dialog box, specify the name of the new branch. To do that, type the name in the Branch name field, or click the Browse button browseButton.png and select the desired name from the list of existing CVS tags.
