Log navigation: add Back/Forward buttons to Commits pane

Ed Ball 1 year ago • updated 4 months ago 1

After clicking on a link in the Log window Details pane (e.g. the "parent commit" link) or after right-click Reveal Commit from the Branches pane, it would be nice if I could go "Back" to the commit that was highlighted before the jump. A button in the Commits toolbar, e.g. next to the Filter box, would be a great place for it. The standard keyboard shortcut (e.g. Alt+Left) would also be nice. "Forward" support would also make sense, but the feature would still be useful without it.

This would be even more useful now that the Log Graph can be used as the primary interface.
