Well there is your problem right there. I don't understand why people expect to be able to use every application without even taking some time to read the most basic docs. When they can't figure it out in ten seconds it is "not intuitive". Please.

There is a very simple way to do what you wanted to do. But, you didn't care to read the docs. BTW: 15 minutes is not a lot of time to set up source control and get it working. I just spent about 1 week of time on an installer problem and I have been working with InstallShield for years and have read the documentation many times.

I'm sure the T-SVN developers will be glowing to hear your comments.
