  1. I don't really have time to record and upload/email a video. I'm just right-clicking on a file under "File changes in conflict" in a merge: That's the menu I mean. I select on those options, but then it refreshes after a little and resets it.
  2. The Incoming Changes view auto-refreshes very frequently, erasing any choice for "Select merge contributor". This is incredibly frustrating. Is there any way to change this? If not, please make it where you can either turn off the auto-refresh for it, or even better where the auto-refresh doesn't erase your changes for an object that was already there before and after the refresh.
  3. Really looking forward to a true dark theme. Just switched today and was disappointed by the main areas of interest still being bright.
  4. One thing I wanted to drop into this thread since it's a hit that comes up in google: check to see if you have any files in your ignore/hidden.conf that aren't being shown. If they are, these files aren't being selected for checkin/undo changes, and the operation will fail. On Pending Changes, there is an Options button. Under What To Show, you can select Show ignored and Show hidden. This can help dig yourself out of this hole. I really do think the UI should handle this way better.
  5. Sorry for the lack of reply, but I've just been swamped. I now don't think it's the specific version, but something else. I say that because a similar thing happened today, with the version I've been on for months (I rolled back after the above issue). It would take over a minute to list changesets/branches/etc. that usually came back in seconds. I tried restarting it and still the same. My bandwidth was plump and plentiful, but something was causing the operations to take forever. Some even timed out, or said they were dropped by the remote connection. I finally rebooted my computer, and
  6. I upgraded to 5201 for me (I was probably about 10 revs back). I instantly started getting problems. Various functions like changeset views, incoming changes, etc. would just spin and spin. On Incoming Changes, I would choose an action for one file and then try to change it for the second one, and it'd tell me the background task (the setting for the first one) was still going. Never ran into that before. Then after a few seconds, I could change it. I tried restarting it and it had the same issues. Even clicking the "check credentials" button would take many seconds before it gave a result (be
  7. Popping into this thread (after posting about a related one), because we're getting into that territory. We're baking lightmaps for one project that's in the gig range. It takes a couple of hours to rebake the lightmaps right now (we're trying to figure out how to speed that up, but we're already using Bakery). With that amount of time, it's desirable to have them checked into VC. But the size (and related fees) is concerning.
  8. 2020 has come and gone (thank all the deities). Any advance on this feature? We're just talking about it now, and how we're going to handle lightmaps that run into the gigs.
  9. Now that we are on the cloud, I have a similar question. As long as updates have been made in the cloud repo for plastic-global-config, does anything have to happen for it to be reflected on the developer's desktop? Do plastic and unity (with the beta plugin) still need to be restarted?
  10. Oh, and as another team member pointed out, you lose the ability to right-click on a file and perform version control tasks, and it no longer prompts you about checking out a prefab before modifying it.
  11. Okay, thanks. So what you'll lose if you turn that off is the little icons on the files in the inspector, right?
  12. When using the plugin, should the Project Settings -> Editor still be set to Plastic SCM?
  13. It's not just me, and it's not just about this one file. A lot of our team have puzzled over some of the Status column values when trying to get used to Plastic. When I spent hours trying to help untangle some stuff yesterday, there were multiple times where we said "What does that even MEAN??"
  14. I still don't get it. If they weren't already controlled, then they should have said "Private/ignored." If they already were in source control, they they should have been current (this was the first time I'd gotten the plugin). But they were both already controlled AND they said "Added".
  15. Okay. This does seem to be the case. But I'm even more confused. The "status" of these items says "Added". And they are under the category "Added and private items." I don't really understand what Plastic is telling me I need to check in on these files, if they're already in source control. If they were changed, they should but under the changed items, surely? And if they were not changed, they shouldn't be a pending change at all, right? Why would they even be listed under my pending changes?
