Browsing SVN repository - "Show deleted files" option ?

When browsing SVN repository (Version Control => Browse Subversion Repository) it's currently impossible to view the files that were deleted. Restoring a file that was deleted in the past requires an "svn log -v" for the folder where it was deleted and then an "svn update" for the file with revision number.

If IDEA had an option to display a deleted files (colored differently, of course .. or with a line-through effect) and also a right-click -> "Restore file" option - that would be much more comfortable.

When I was working with P4Win client - it had such an option and it was very-very useful.

I had the same issue: I was hoping right clicking on the folder the deleted file was supposed to be in would give me the option to get it back, but unfortunately, it doesn't...

Voted! (Though I don't want a project view which displays my deleted and non-deleted files, it would clutter up my interface to much. Just a right click on the dir, go to subversion, and then 'show history' would be great (currently, show history is disabled for directories, but it would be great to use it to retreive files!)

"Show History" for directories is another issue (and a good one too, thanks for reminding - I was feeling uncomfortable too),
I've filed it as well - http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-17961

Displaying deleted files while browsing repository can be an option, turned off by default.
When user turns it on - only then he sees all of them. So normally, it wouldn't bother you.

True, but when you do some refactorings like renaming, it's quite easy to get a long list. But maybe you're right, it might not be a (big) problem, as long as I don't have to revert back to the svn command line.
