    • Change the color of the color bar in Visual Studio

      VS has the built-in behaviour of changing the colour bar (just to the left of the code) that tracks the change status of the code (yellow for unsaved code modification, green for code changed and saved this session).

      VisualSVN makes a change to the colours of this colour bar, depending on the status of the file (unsaved or saved modification from working copy)?

      Could AnkhSVN be modified to change the behaviour of this colour bar in a similar fashion (red for unsaved local modifications, yellow for saved modifications from the local copy) based on the SVN status of the line,…

      • allow comment templates

        It would be nice if we could set up a template for commit comments so that we do not have to add a comment structure that we use to make comments look uniform

        • Restore current commit message between visual studio sessions

          I usually start to write a detailed commit message whitout commiting immediatly. The very annoying thing is that if I close visual studio (or if it crashes...) before commiting, my message is entirely lost. If you found a way to save this message this would be great !!

          • suggestions/autocomplete in commit message

            It would be nice to have suggestions in commit message textbox, which would include file names, classes etc.

            tortoisesvn has such feature

            • keep messages in 'pending changes' tab between sessions

              Currently if a message is added to the pending changes tab, it will be discarded upon closing visual studio. It'd be nice if these could be kept between sessions, to help remember any changes since the last commit...

              • Allow update when I lock out of date file

                Now, when I have to lock out of date file, I only get warning message "One or more your local resources are out of date.. and so on" with "OK" button. It would be better have dialog with something similar "One or more your local resources are out of date. Do you want get latest version?" with button Yes, No.

                • Commit action should unlock file even if no other changes have been made.

                  When a file is locked, but no other changes have been made to the file, "Commit changes" becomes active in the interface, but selecting it does not unlock the file (and therefore commit changes remains active). This behaviour also exists in Tortoise, but is equally annoying there.

                  • Allow viewing of last version of deleted file from Pending Changes window

                    When you delete a file from your project, you are not able to diff or annotate it, because your local changes are gone. However, it can be handy to be able to view the last version from the repository from the Pending Changes area, if you need to refresh your memory regarding what you deleted, to help in writing up the comment.

                    • default from/to comparison

                      When diffing a file, I'd like to be able to set the default from type and to type that are specified so that the shift key bypass is more useful to me.

                      The defaults of Base and Working are useless to me as that shows what I've done locally - which, if I'm committing as often as I should, I know what I've done. Being able to default to Latest Version instead of Base would save me lots of clicks.

                      • Edit Conflicts

                        I was not able to find anything in Ankh ( Visual Studio) which lets me browse conflicted files.

                        Note that some of the resolve options (e.g. Edit Conflicts) require a merge tool to be setup in Tools -> Options -> Source Control -> Subversion user tools

                        Would like to view and edit the conflicts in Ankh itself.

                        • More information in Recent Changes window

                          I suggest you show more information in the Recent Changes window. This is the window which shows what happened to the repository, but it does so in a way which makes it suboptimal. In particular:

                          1) If a remote change occured, I want to be able to see (for changes on the repository which I do not yet have):
                          a) The committer
                          b) The revision number (so I can see which changes are part of one commit)
                          c) The commit message
                          d) (optional) The commit date and time

                          2) The "compare" SplitButton defaults to "Compare with Original Version". However, in…

                                This request should be handled with our TortoiseSVN client hook compatibility which is currently being tested.

                                (Can be enabled via the registry in the daily builds of AnkhSVN 2.3)

                                This feature will be enabled by default in a future release.

                              • In Repos-Explorer. Refresh the view after moving folders.

                                In the VisualStudio Reposity-Explorer I am able to move Folders to another subdirs.
                                Please auto-Refresh the view. I can see my subdirs after moving them until I manually select the parent-folder and click on the refresh-button.
