RE: TSVN equivalent of svn copy -r

Right click on the file, show log, select all revisions you want to undo (revert), right click, revert changes from these revisions. If it's a binary file (such as xls) you will end up with a conflict if the revisions selected don't include the last one (and they always have to be consecutive).

Subject: TSVN equivalent of svn copy -r

I tried to revert a excel file - let's call it table.xls - in a working directory to a former revision (revision formerRev) and commit it in order to discard all changes after this revision. When using "Update to revision" or "Switch" the file in the working directoy really reverted to revision formerRev but there was no possibility to commit the working directory because subversion / TSVN recognised no modification. So I think this is the wrong way.
Using table.xls' log message dialog and right-clicking "Revert to this revision" results in a conflicted state even though the file was not modified before. Not what I wanted, too.

The only way I managed to revert the file was

* SVN deleting table.xls using TSVN

* using the svn command line client in the working directory: svn copy -r formerRev RepositoryURLandPath/table.xls .

* commiting using TSVN

Is there any way to do the same without the command line client ?

Thanks for your help !
