Working with Stream Favorites

This section describes common procedures used with Stream Favorites.

Applying a Stream Favorite

To apply a Stream Favorite, double-click it.

In addition to changing the StreamBrowser display itself, AccuRev shows information about the current Stream Favorite in two places:

  • The Showing Stream Favorite field at the top of the StreamBrowser identifies which Stream Favorite is active.
  • The Number of favorite streams field at the bottom of the StreamBrowser indicates how many streams were specified as favorites in the current Stream Favorite.

Clearing a Stream Favorite from the StreamBrowser

To clear a Stream Favorite, click the Show All Streams button at the bottom of the Stream Favorites panel.

Depending on the size and complexity of your stream hierarchy, showing all streams can take a long time. AccuRev displays an informational message, which gives you the chance to cancel the operation.

Tip: If you check the Do not show this again check box, you can restore this dialog box by clearing the Skip "Show All Streams" checkbox on the General tab of the AccuRev Preferences dialog box (Tools > Preferences).

Editing a Stream Favorite

You can make the following changes to a Stream Favorite:

  • Name
