presumably btn:Create[] was meant to show as a button image

rest of the value → rest of the values
btn:Finish[] should be button image?
this create the class → this creates the class

you change in this exercises → in this exercise you will change
select your Git repository or your project → select the Git repository for your project
give you over the commit → gives you about the commit
The dropdown containing "All changes of Resource" is grey/disabled. The exact steps in 1.8 are repeated in 1.12 so perhaps 1.8 should just be deleted, since by the time we get to 1.12 the grey/disabled is no longer an issue.

need to know where to create the file. Perhaps this section should take the same approach as 1.14 and tell the user to New→File?

1.12) is a copy of 1.8). Note that the corrections I gave for 1.8) apply here too

The current context menu says Open instead of Open This Version

add a unwanted file an remove it → add an unwanted file and remove it

@Lars: Please have a look at 1.13

All other issues have been fixed. Thanks for reporting.

In my version it is "Open this version". I’m using a recent EGit version (Eclipse EGit Git integration for Eclipse - UI org.eclipse.egit.ui) so maybe you are using an older version? Are you using Eclipse 2022-06?

I’m using 2022-06 , same EGit version as you. However, the 2022-06 that I’m using is specifically "Eclipse IDE for RCP and RAP Developers (includes Incubating components)" because I want to use Git in conjunction with RCP work so I don’t really want to learn in an environment that doesn’t match what I’d use. Is it possible for some reason the Git user interface differs between regular Eclipse IDE and Eclipse IDE for RCP? I have three screenshots, 1) eclipse version page 2) eclipse packages versions page 3) the context menu in question. Is there a way to include images in an issue post or should I email them?

Unfortunately our tools does not yet allow to update images. Here is my screenshot You can also use

For RCP development I typically recommend the Eclipse SDK download for which you can install also the EGit afterwards. RAP Is not really helpful for RCP development. I doubt that RAP does change anything in EGit but side-effects may be present, I do not use the RAP download (and do not recommend it) so I do not know how it looks in this download.

Best regards, Lars

I paid too much attention to the text and not enough attention to the screenshot, so I had selected the commit in history view but then selected the file context menu in project manager instead of the bottom right history view files list. It’s fortunate that I archived screenshots so I could see my exact error or I’d be even more confused about what happened :)

Thanks for the feedback. I improved the description a bit:

We want to see the version of the file as it was in the first commit. Select the first commit in the history view. You see the changed files of a commit in the right bottom part of the commit details. Select your file in the commit details of the History view and select menu:Open this version[] via the context menu.

I hope this is clearer.
