MPS 2019.1 Help

History Tab

The History tab is added to the Version Control tool window on invoking the Show History command for a file or directory through the menu of a particular VCS. A new tab is created for each file or directory with the following name: History: <file_name>. The set of toolbar buttons differs slightly depending on your version control system.

All commands available from the toolbar are also available from the context menu of a selection.
