    I have version (trial), but the history still shows the whole database even when I right click on a specific object in Object Explorer. I thought this was fixed - or am I misunderstanding?
  • If you right click on a specific object and select "Show History," then the History List at the top will only show items that are related to that specific object. In the changelist below the comments, you will see all objects that changed in that particular commit. The change you made to a specific object could have been related to changes made in other objects, so this allows you to see the entire changeset. The specific object that you are interested in should be in black text and all the other objects should be in gray text.

    I hope this helps to clarify how the Object Level History works.
    Thank you!

  • We had to reorganize the folder structure on our Subversion server.
    So we unlinked our database, and then linked it back on to the new path.
    Suddenly we don't have any history!
    The history is still there if you watch it in the Repo-browser (TortoiseSVN).
    When looking at the Log Messages (History) in the Repo-browser, there is a Checkbox called "Stop on copy/rename".
    Checking/unchecking this Checkbox makes the "history" appear/disappear.
    It seems that SQL Source Control consider this setting on (guessing).
