How do I revert all files that are "edited" in my client but now have the same content as the latest on the depot.

p4 revert -a does not seem to work here.

Currently, I have to diff each file w.r.t latest on depot and if not-different revert it manually.

Thanks for the reply.

'p4 revert -a' seems like it should work here. Is it giving any errors as to why it's not working? Are the local files writable?

If you don't necessarily care _what_ files are actually changed and want to submit them, you could look into the worskpace's SubmitOptions and change it to 'leave unchanged'.

Though if revert -a doesn't work, not sure that would either.
