Viewing Files in a Different Perspective

You can see which files are under Dimensions CM control from other perspectives within Eclipse, such as the Java or the Resource perspective.

If you have enabled the Dimensions CM indicator (default), the files are marked with icons indicating that they are under control and if the local versions differ from the one in the repository. The displayed file names also have the version number in parenthesis appended at the end.

The file decorations can be enabled from the Eclipse preferences. Select Windows | Preferences, then select General | Appearance | Label Decorations. From here, select the Serena Dimensions check box to enable Dimensions file decorations.

You can access most of the source control options by right-clicking on the file and selecting the Team menu.
