Using Branch Mode

Modified on Wed, 22 Jun 2022 at 10:18 AM

Creating a Branch

To create a branch, click the dropdown next to the name of your app on the top panel and type the name of your new branch.  To create the branch, click the panel that says "Create ${name-of-branch} from ${name-of-parent-branch}". This will automatically redirect you to your new branch.

Creating a new branch

Entering Branch Mode

On the left hand side bar, the last icon will direct you to Branching Mode where you can see a history of changes in your branch.

Understanding Branch Mode

At the top of the pop out panel in branch mode, you will see the name of your branch, followed by the number of conflicts with master, the last update (the last time you saved your application), the option to merge, and a search bar with a list that shows the hierarchy of your elements, like that in the Tree panel, but this time with notes that show version history.

In this list the element colors can help you understand the difference in your version from the parent branch.

  • Green: signifies an addition. In the example above, the new branch has added an Icon to the element
  • Blue: signifies a modification. In the example above, the new branch had changed the copy in two text elements.
  • Red: signifies a deletion. In the above, the Graphs element has been deleted.
