Branch / Tag - Cannot enter specific external revision number

We are in the process of upgrading from 1.7.15 to 1.9.5 and have a couple of issues/questions about the newer version. We are doing some specific Branch/Tagging by opening a working copy n Windows 7, then using the context menu to open Branch/Tag.
1. Why has the Revision column been removed from the Branch/Tag dialog? It is included in the help screenshots still (see https://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-dug-branchtag.html ) We used to be able to see the latest revision number in what was the third column, and then type in a custom revision number instead, in case we wanted to hold back an external from a latest revision just for a specific branch/tag, rather than via adding pegs to the existing branch. Instead now it just always sends the latest revision number that was HEAD at the time.
2. When externals are committed via Branch/Tag, if you tick to select them, then the capability string mergeinfo is not provided (which is causing our commit hook scripts to reject the commits). Was this removed intentionally? If we disable that check then the commit works okay, but there seems to be inconsistency in that the mergeinfo is provided with any other regular commits.
Any help would be much appreciated.
I did find the following posts with similar issues, however they don't seem to answer the exact differences.
