Changelists

Item

Description

Create changelists automatically

Select this option if you want DataSpell to advise you when to create changelists.

Allow putting changes within one file into different changelists

Select this option if you work on a few tasks within one file and want to put a few changes within it into different changelists.

Highlight files from inactive changelists

If you select this checkbox, DataSpell shows names of the files belonging to inactive changelists in light-blue font in the editor tabs and in the Project view.

Show dialog on attempt to edit file from inactive changelist

If you select this option, DataSpell displays the Resolve Changelist Conflict dialog on an attempt to modify a file from a non-active changelist.

Select one of the following options:

  • Shelve the changes (see Shelve changes for more information).

  • Move changes to active changelist: the file will be moved to the active changelist.

  • Switch to changelist: the current changelist will be made active.

  • Ignore: the file will be added to the list of files with ignored conflicts.

When an empty changelist becomes inactive

In this section, specify whether you want to remove inactive changelists silently or not. The following options are available:

  • Do nothing: Changelists are not removed as they become inactive.

  • Remove silently: Inactive changelists are automatically removed without confirmation.

Highlight files with changelist conflicts

If you select this option, DataSpell shows a yellow stripe on top of a file from an inactive changelist, when such file has been modified.

It lets you choose one of the possible ways to resolve conflicts:

  • Move file to the active changelist.

  • Switch changelists.

  • Ignore conflicts.

The names of the files belonging to inactive changelists are shown in red font in the editor tabs and in the Project view.
