The Check Out dialog


The Check Out dialog allows you to extract a working copy of a design from an SVN design repository to a local folder, which is then automatically opened in Altium NEXUS.


The dialog is accessed by clicking File » Check Out from the main menus.

The Check Out dialog is available when Altium NEXUS is connected to an SVN repository that uses the file access method.
