Re: WinSVN or WinCVS equivalent for SVN ?

Thanks Tobias.

I'm still using old versions: SVN 1.2.3 / T-SVN 1.2.6.

(More below...)

Thanks for the tip. (It's great to get unexpected help in return for trying to help.)

I've tried that with the "Check for Modifications" and "Commit" dialogs. That works very well as a "refresh". The checked items are not preserved on the commit dialog with (old) version 1.2.6 that I'm still using. [So, that's another reason for me to upgrade to SVN/T-SVN 1.4.x.]

I found no mention of "F5 to refresh" in the 1.2.6 documentation, but I note that in more recent versions of the documentation, there is a section on "Common Shortcuts". Perhaps some of the other sections (e.g. on the commit dialog, local and remote changes dialog, and log dialog) would benefit from a cross-reference to that section.

I suppose it should have occurred to me to try F5, but it didn't.

I look forward to giving that a try after I've upgraded. I was considering putting in a couple of feature requests; I don't even need to do that, as these things have already been thought of. Fantastic.
