IntelliJ IDEA 2016.3 Help

New Bookmark Dialog

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 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 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.
  • Clear this check box to activate the new bookmark and thus enable tracking and updating the light-weight branch the bookmarks identifies. The check box is cleared by default.
  • Select this check box to have an inactive bookmark created, that is, to remain in the current light-weight branch (bookmark) or named branch and switch to the new bookmark later.
