Re: How to remove local files without affecting repository

Call it cherry picking of directories then... I'm not confusing the
effective difference between types of operations; but to my mind the
first time you grab a file from the repository into a working copy,
that's its "initial checkout", regardless of which command is used to
perform the transfer. The point is "Update To Revision..." is active
when you select multiple dirs and files in the Explorer files view of
a working copy but not in the Repo Browser's files view, for the case
where when each item is selected individually it does show up. If it's
active when one dir is selected, in other words, it should still be
active when more then one dir is selected. The interface appearances
are unwarrantedly inconsistent, and makes for more work on the users
part than necessary.

"Checkout..." in this context is just the example of a menu item that
does show up in Repo-Browser on multiple selections and has the logic
to stage what transferring it does in one TortoiseProc session using a
for...each loop on the selected items list, not force you to run
multiple sessions. I could have used "Copy to Working Copy..."
instead, but that's more letters to type.

Hope this is clearer,
