Subversion SVN: Set Keyword-Properties for existing files

If you want to use in an already existing Project the keyword-substitution in Subversin as described here: Subversion Keywords (Revision,Author,URL,Date,ID) you have to set the properties to substitute these keywords for all existing files, too.

This can be done e.g. in Tortoise SVN in the contextmenu-properties-new
Just check in the needed Keywords an click OK.
You can the properties for every single file or recursively for an directory:

Subversion - TortiseSVN set Properties-Dialog
Subversion – TortiseSVN set Properties-Dialog

After setting this properties, alle the files have to be checked in!
