My client: Perforce Visual Client/MACOSX106X86_64/2013.3/712133

For the last two days my P4V behaves incorrectly when I try to sync to some changelist. I right click on the changelist and select "Get Revision...". Usually in the list "Get or replace the following files/folders:" I have seen some root folder for the workspace and I could just click "Get Revision" button and sync to this changelist, but since yesterday I started getting a list of files from this particular changelist, i.e. "Get Revision" behaves as if I checked "Only get revisions for files listed in changelist" checkbox, even though I am not. Now to use "Get Revision" feature I need to remove all files from the list, then add a root folder of my workspace and only after that it will sync my workplace up to this changelist.

I thought that somehow some preference was set that would get the list of files in the changelist instead of a workspace folder, but could not find any in the P4V preferences. After that I ahve removed P4V from my Mac, removed references to p4v in ~/Library/ folder and reinstalled P4V, but it did not help - P4V still behaving as if the "Only get revisions for files listed in changelist" box is set.

Any ideas on what could go wrong?

Use the 'History' tab instead of the 'Submitted' tab and you'll get the behavior you expect.

Darn, I was hoping it was just an incorrect tab. The behavior you describe is the behavior you get when calling 'Get Revision...' from the submitted changelist pane. I personally find myself using the incorrect tab on occasion and was hoping you had the same issue.

Do you have a complex client view? If you use 'Get revision...' from history on a file is the file listed in the dialog?
