Retrieves the most recent version of the selected items from the repository and creates read-only copies in your working folder. To retrieve a history version of an item, click Get in History Explorer dialog box. You should have a working folder set before using this command.
There are five possible outcomes using Get command:
In Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted, a merge may occur at Get command (only if the Replace writable option is set to Merge in Get dialog box). Merge on Get is very useful in the following two cases.
The difference among the current version, the checked-out version and your local copy of the file will be merged into your local copy. This is a three-way merge.
The way how Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted determines if your local copy is different from the copy in Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted repository can be set in Compare files by option in Tools->Options->Files Tab.
You must have Read access right to use this command.
If you have checked the Get Latest Version check box in Options->Command Dialogs tab, the Get Latest Version dialog box is displayed when you perform the Get Latest Version command.
Type the path of the folder where you want Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted to place the files. The default is the working folder of the selected file or project.
Gets a project, including all descendants of the project. Each file in a subproject is copied into its own working folder, which can be a folder anywhere on your computer or an accessible remote computer. To override the working folder settings, and create a file structure that mirrors the project structure in Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted repository, use the Build Tree option.
Note: Cloaked subprojects will not be retrieved.
Overrides the working folder set for the subprojects involved in a recursive operation, and builds a project tree on your local computer that mirrors the project organization. Working folder settings for individual subprojects are ignored. Available only when you select the Recursive check box.
Sets the read/write flag so the file is writable. This is not the default behavior, but may be useful if you want to try a temporary change in the file, or want to rename the file after getting it.
This option is enabled when you have checked "Use read-only flag for files that are not checked out" in Tools->Options->Files Tab.
Set File Time
Sets the modification date/time of the local file when Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted gets a file. Select one of the following options in the dropdown list:
Current: Sets the modification date/time of the local copy to the current date and time.
Modification: Sets the modification date/time of the local copy to the date and time the file was last modified.
Check In: Sets the modification date/time of the local copy to the date and time the file was last checked in.
The default selected option in the Set File Time dropdown list is the option you specify in Set File Time option in Tools->Options->Files Tab.
Determines how Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted behaves when you try to get a file that is already modified and marked as writable in your working folder. The way how Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted determines if your working folder copy is modified can be set in 'Compare files by' option in Tools->Options->Files Tab.
Select one of the following options from the dropdown list:
Ask: Asks you what you want Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted to handle the writable local copy.
Replace: Replaces the local copy with the file on the repository.
Skip: Leaves the local copy alone (not retrieving the latest version from the repository).
Merge: Attempts a three-way merge if the file has been checked out by multiple users including you and your local file version number is smaller than that on the server. Besides, skips the local file copy.
The default selected option in the Replace Writable dropdown list is the one you specify in Replace Writable item in Tools->Options->Files Tab.
The end-of-line terminator for mergeable files may be specified using this option.
The EOL Terminator may need to be changed if the operating system where the working folders reside differs from the operating system Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted Client is currently running on. For example, if Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted Client is running on a Windows operating system but needs to retrieve files to a working folder that is on a Mac OS, you can change the EOL Terminator to Mac(CR) so that files retrieved to the working folder will be displayed correctly.
The options for end-of-line terminator are as follows:
The default selected option in the End-of-line dropdown list is the option you specify in End-of-line option in Tools->Options->Files Tab.
Note: The EOL Terminator will not take effect if your local copy of
file is the same as the one in the repository. The way how Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted determines
if your working folder copy differs from the repository copy can be set in 'Compare files by' option in
Retrieves the file or project from repository.
Cancels the Get command and closes the dialog box.
