Options/Controls

 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 your choice. You can work with the files in your local working folder and when you need the latest copies, you can check out the refreshed files from the repository into your working folder. When you make 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 want to change the default working folder directory.
For a default installation, the Working Folder will be: \Users\<ProfileName>\Documents\My Designs\SVNDBlib Working Folder.

Repository Cache for Designer

  • Do not check files more often than xx minutes - if the elapsed time between the last update and the action is greater than the time threshold, the repository update WILL be performed. Use this field to change the time interval as required.      
  • Cache Folder - repository files are cached in a temporary folder on the Designer's computer. Cached files are updated either at the Designer's request, or each  time an action requiring the Repository latest copy is performed. 
For a default installation, the Cache Folder will be: \Users\<ProfileName>\AppData\Local\Altium\SVNDBlib Cache.
