There's no integration but it's easy to use and works fine. I've found the TortoiseSVN client problematic. I recommend using either the command-line client or the free version of SmartSVN. Checking out files just creates local copies, it does not lock them as in some other source control

Yep. Ran into this a couple of days ago. I've since made two tables, one with the column and one without, and conditionaled the appearance. A nuisance, but workable. On Thu, Dec 6, 2012 at 12:41 PM, Lief Erickson l...@networkinstruments.com wrote: Sadly, it's true. -Original Message-

I've also used TortoiseSVN for years without any issues. The local files wouldn't be out of sync with the repository unless unversioned files that had been created (but not added to SVN) were not committed (i.e., you have local files the repository doesn't know about) or you had failed to

That was not an issue for me. IMHO it's important at least for starting out that you use whatever people around you can support you on. You don't want to be the only TortoiseSVN user, the only command line user, or what have you. After you learn that you can consider testing another tool. On Thu,
