Very nice Stefan!

In TSVN 1.8.3[*] using the function
on a file works just as I'd like it! I think I'll also use the shortcut tip.

Apologies for not having tried "Edit" in 1.8, it's right there. And enough reason for us to migrate in itself I'd say.

Best regards and sincere appreciation of your work!

[*] For users of e.g. TSVN 1.7.6:
Stefan's suggested solution works well for files that don't require a lock. In TSVN 1.8.3 the solution also handles locks as well.
