Quick What-I-Edited report?

Postby Lonnie VanZandt » Sun May 03, 2009 7:54 pm

At the end of the day, I like to either commit my model edits back to
TeamServer or save a local copy. I like to look at a model and tell whether
or not I modified anything. I believe I have two options: 1. scan all
packages looking for highlight items which indicate unsaved edits or 2. run
an Analyze->Compare Project report. Option 1 is prone to oversight and
time-consuming. Option 2 is time-consuming.

Is there a better way to ask a project what are the latest edits made since
the last save?

Hello,

There is no easy better way to find changed elements.

Highlighted items may produce not accurate results because :
1. in case of inner element modified outer is not highlighted. Problem appears when modifying
tagged value - no visible elements are highlighted.
2. In case element was modified but later it was restored it is still marked as highlighted.

Because of these reasons it is better to use compare projects action - it compares actual
data.

Regards

I discovered that the Locked Elements tab on the Commit dialog is actually
the "Which Elements Would you Like to UNLOCK" tab.

Now, I can commit and unlock all. Then, when the commit dialog goes away,
the model is uneditable. So, if I walk away from the PC and then return, I
can see I haven't made any edits because I hold no open locks.

Before, I had to commit, forget, commit, forget, etc.

Hello,

Yes you are right - "Locked Elements" does not necessary mean that they were edited.
In case you commit and unlock all, all your changes are send to the server, so you have most
recent version of project and you have nothing changed in it.
