Branch Command (Source Menu)
Breaks the share link while retaining a copy of the file, or copies the
selected history version of an item to a location you specify.
You can branch either a shared file or a history version of an item. When a
file is branched, the branch history of the file is shown in the
Properties dialog box.
- Share Branch: For a file that is already shared, this command breaks the share links and
creates an independent file branch at the location the file is branched.
Pinned or checked-out file can not be branched.
Any changes made to
that branch will not be reflected in other projects sharing the file, and the
File Properties dialog box will not show the link that has been broken.
Share branch on a project is applied to all shared files (or descendants)
within the project.
- History Branch: For
a history version of a file or project, this command copies the
selected version of the file or project to a location you specify. In
Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted, the history of an item is retained after it is branched at a particular
version. For example, if a file has 10 versions and is branched at version 5,
the new branch of the file will begin its life at version 5 (meaning that
versions 1 through 5 of the branch are the same as the branched file).
Branch may be performed in History Explorer
dialog box or Show Labels dialog box.
