Synchronise what does it do

Answered

There is a synchronise in the File menu

and there is a synchronise when right click a folder (context menu) and then choose "Synchronise <folder>"

we use git. I assume there is some synchronisation with git. But what exactly ?

Where can i find these things in the documentation, was unable to find.

It's not related to VCS. Synchronize action gets external changes from the file system in case they were not detected automatically by the file watcher.

Does it not also push local changes to a remote data source?

Which takes precedent?

No, it has nothing to do with version control.

I guess the confusion has to do with some other IDEs checking what has changed in the remote repo upon clicking Synchronize (for example: Eclipse)
