  1. Thanks Carlos, I think you might be right. I changed the preference and based on a few spot checks, the problem seems to go away. I should have thought of that! I guess checking the hash is slightly slower but it doesn't seem to matter for our repo size.
  2. I'm starting to see files appearing in Pending Changes despite not having been modified or saved in my workspace (at least not by me). In the Preferences I've already selected 'Do not allow, show an error' for the behavior when switching workspaces with changed items. This seems to be working correctly. But when I do switch my workspace to a difference branch, if i go to Pending Changes straight away I see a handful of files that appear to have been modified seconds ago. If I try doing a diff of the workspace contents Plastic finds no actual revisions in the content. I did wonder whether any fields within the files (they're word documents) are auto-updating and so appearing modified, but as I've never saved the modified files I don't know how they're appearing as pending. Also, the files that appear in Pending Changes seem completely random and bear no relation to what has actually changed previously in the branch. I'm on so a little out of date but haven't run into this problem before. The only difference in approach is that I've recently started placing my workspaces on a network drive rather than the local c:\ drive. Could this be a factor?
  3. At first glance I wasn't sure about removing the left hand menu, but then I realised how everything opens up as a tab anyway, your suggestion makes sense. It's useful to have as much usable space on screen as possible, so reducing unnecessary clutter is helpful. I like the idea of distinguishing between different kinds of tabs through colours or icons. It's confusing when you end up with a mix of static/pinned tabs like Branch Explorer, Workspace Explorer, buried between more ephemeral tabs like merge results, 2d history views, where it's easy to forgot why they were opened in the first place.
  4. Thanks for the quick response, Carlos. I should have done a bit more searching in that folder! Hoping to update the client as part of a general Windows 10 update, so looking forward to getting my hands on the newer features and bugfixes.
  5. Apologies for digging up a very old thread, but I need to set a default workspace location and this is the only post that seemed to have an answer. I tried following the steps to edit guiclient.conf but as far as i can see it has no effect, and when Plastic is restarted the conf file is updated and the <DefaultWorkspaceRoot> line is removed. Is there a current way of doing this (I'm using
  6. I had the same question but didn't think it was possible without some direct copying of the database. This is a really useful way of quickly copying a repo to investigate problems. Thanks Carlos!
