How to keep track of switched folders

Hello,

I am using Tortoise to handle my labview code. It works quite well in
general. A feature that is of particular interest to me is the
switching. This is due to the fact that labview is quite picky about the
location of the code, i.e. every file memorizes the path to the
subroutines it uses. It is therefore not straightforward to change to a
different version of a library. Switching the library directory is
therefore an easy way to make labview believe the code is still in the
old place. However, I easily loose track which directories are switched
and which are not. In fact, it has already caused a lot of confusion
(and also repair work) because I have changed and committed code to a
wrong place.

 

Would it please be possible to have an easy to see indication which
directories are switched?

 

I am obviously not the first one having the problem of keeping track of
switches (see e.g. here
<http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/ds/viewMessage.do?dsForumId=4061&dsMessag
eId=73249> and here
<http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/ds/viewMessage.do?dsForumId=4061&dsMessag
eId=797083&orderBy=createDate&orderType=desc> ). I have already learnt
that overlays are scarce but I too would happily sacrifice the
unversioned overlay to indicate a switched folder (if there is a reason
to have a distinct overlay for unversioned status that I do not see,
would it be at least possible to individually choose whether one wants
to use that overlay for one purpose or the other?).

 

I wished you could find a solution soon,

Matthias
