Change the CVS refresh history days

Hi,

I remember when i created my project and opened the Repository tab inside the Changes plugin, IDEA asked me how many days i would like to refresh with CVS history. I want to change that value now, searched in a lot of places, but i can't find it.

Does anyone know how to change the refresh history interval?

Best Regards

Roberto Cortez

If you switch to the "Repository" tab of the Changes toolwindow and click on the Refresh button (leftmost in the tab's toolbar) then IDEA pops up that dialog again.

Oops, I tried that in a project where I hadn't used that feature since upgrading IDEA.

Yet, you can find these options in the regular project settings: Settings -> Project Settings -> Version Control -> Cache (at least for SVN, but I think it should be the same for CVS).

Hello Roberto,

You need to delete the cached history (system\vcsCache directory) and press
the Refresh button again. There's no way to load older changesets through
the UI.
