This article describes hidden menu options that are available when using Check in/out PDM dialog boxes. These menu options are also available in Change State, Rollback, Get Version, Move Tree and Copy Tree dialog boxes.


To access these menu options, right click in the File list and the context menu will appear as shown below.


Available shortcut menu options are:

  • Columns: This allows you to add or remove columns.

  • Select All: Selects all files or items, so that you can use a single keystroke to check or clear the Get column.
