Feature Request: Ability to select/deselect all matching chunks in shelve search bar
Created originally on Bitbucket by Anonymous
When we are editing large files (for example updating EDMX files from a database), we often have a large number of chunks that we do not want to commit.
Currently the workflow we have to do this is:
- Shelve all edmx file changes
- Use the search bar on the shelve dialog to highlight relevant chunks
- Scroll through the list (or press Next) and tick each chunk individually, we can unshelve those changes and have a clean commit for that feature
It would be really helpful if there were buttons in the search bar to select all / deselect all matching chunks. This would save us a lot of time and reduce the chance of human error.
As a side note: I was originally going to submit a request to have any search bar at all but then discovered the very subtle button that opens this up. Possibly the button to open the search bar should also say "Search" next to the icon? There is a lot of unused space available.
