Check Out Dialog Box

See Also

Checks out the selected file(s) or project into your current working folder.

Dialog Box Items

Comment

Type a comment for the check out. While the file is checked out, the Check Out Status tab of File Properties dialog box will display the checkout comment. The length of the comment is limited to 3000 characters.

To

Displays the working folder into which Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted copies the file. By default, Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted copies the file into your working folder. However, you can enter a different folder and file path, or click Browse to select a different location in the folder tree.

Recursive (Project-level Check Out only)

Checks out the project and all its descendants.

Build Tree(override working folder) (Project-level Check Out only)

Overrides the working folder set for the subprojects involved in a recursive operation, and builds a project tree that mirrors the project organization on your local computer. Working folder settings for individual subprojects are ignored. Available only when you select the Recursive check box.

Note: Cloaked subprojects will not be checked out.

Don't get local copy

Tells Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted not to copy the file to your working folder. Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted records that the file is checked out, but does not write a new copy to your working folder.

Request exclusive lock

Requests exclusive checkout of the current file(s) or project. If this option is enabled, other users will not be able to checkout the current file(s) or project. This option takes effect only when Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted has been set to allow multiple checkouts.

Replace Writable

Determines how Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted behaves when you try to check out 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 in the group box:

The default selected option in the Replace Writable dropdown list is the option you specify in Replace Writable option in Tools->Options->Files Tab.

Set File Time

Sets the modification date and 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 and time of the local copy to the current date and time.

Modification: Sets the modification date and time of the local copy to the date and time the file was last modified.

Check In: Sets the modification date and 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.

End-of-line

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.
