 Repository Working Copy for Library Editing

  • Working Folder -  The working SVN libraries containing component symbols and models are stored in a specified working directory of the librarian's choice. The Librarian works with the files in his local working folder and when he needs latest copies, he checks out the refreshed files from the repository into his working folder. When the librarian makes changes to these files, they can be saved in this folder and then committed (pass changes) to the repository. Edit the field to change the working folder or press the browse button at the end of this field if you wish to change the default working folder directory.
For a default installation, the Working Folder will be: \Users\<ProfileName>\Documents\My Designs\SVNDBlib Working Folder.
