[TSVN] Confusing Branch dialog

From: Norbert Unterberg <nepo_at_gmx.net>

I am trying my first branch in TSVN, and I am having problems
understanding what exactly the Branch/Tag dialog does. The docs do not
really help.

What I want is the following:
I have a tag in the repos. I want to create a branch from that tag and
start some work on that branch. But the branch should not be committed
to the repos before I changed the version number in one of the headers.

In SVN command line client I would do this:

svn copy http://path/to/repos/tags/1.00 c:\wc_branch
edit c:\wc_branch\version.h
svn ci c:\wc_branch -m "branched fom 1.00"

How would I do this in TSVN?

Or let me ask the question the other way round.
Subversion's copy command allows all four possible combinations for SRC
and DEST: WC->WC, WC->URL, URL->WC, URL->URL. What combinations does
TSVN support in the branch dialog? The dialog itself is not really clear:
  * "From WC at URL", is WC or URL the source? It could mean WC, but the
help file says the copy is made *inside the repos*?

  * Checkbox "Create the branch/tag directly on the server" is not
explained in the help file. Between what versions of the copy do I
select here?

I will do my first branch with the command line client now... :-(
