Create Patch from Local Modifications

This is the most commonly used type of patch and contains only the local changes for the selected item.

This option is useful if you want to share changes with other team members and you are not yet ready to commit them. This option is only available for local items that contain modifications. It is not available for items in which the local file status is unversioned or ignored, and in some cases missing or obstructed.

The steps are as follows:

  1. Go to menu Tools > Create patch.
    This opens the Create patch wizard.
  2. Select the Create patch from local modifications option in the dialog box.
  3. Optionally, if you want to configure the options for your patch, press the Next button.
    This options page does not remember your selections when creating future patches. It will revert to the default values.
    The Options wizard page is displayed.
  4. Press the Create patch button.
    If the patch is applied on a folder of the working copy and that folder contains unversioned files, this step of the wizard offers the option of selecting the ones that will be included in the patch.

    The patch is created and stored in the path specified in the Output section of the Options page or in the default location.
