Ways to clean up version tree/branches
I want to get some feedback from the community on this issue. Maybe we need to adjust our workflow. I've got a fairly large document with a couple dozen parts and we've been trying to follow a GIT workflow where we create branches for design changes. Once we're happy with the changes, we merge back into our development branch. Then, we repeat for the next design changes by creating a new branch for a new set of changes.
This seems to work OK, but it has resulted in a really large number of branches. So, when I open the version tree, the formatting of the branches makes it difficult to see where the most recent work is being done. This is made worse when an update is pushed to the document and any open workspaces are pushed to the top of the tree with no real design changes being made. It would be great if I could make the version tree wider so that I can see more branches at one time.
- Can/should we be doing something different with our workflow to keep things more clear? I've thought about separating parts into separate documents, but I've read that each document should be a container for a whole project.
- Would others find value in a full-screen, or adjustable width version tree view? I'm thinking this could be an improvement request.
