filenames & packages are brown!!

When I started IDEA (build 701) today, I found that all of the
filenames & all of the package names are brown.

What does it mean?

In the doc they say what green, black, and blue mean, but what is
brown?

Thanks,

Neil

OK, on to the next question:

What causes IDEA to decide the VCS status is unknown when a VCS
provider has been selected?

I have worked in this configuration before and the files stayed
green/black/blue.

Thanks,

Neil

AccuRev & I'm using the AccuRev vcs plugin.

I didn't try to perform any vcs actions, however.

I'm not sure how AccuRev plugin is implemented since its third party one.
Could you please contact its vendor?

Maxim,

I have the source to this VCS plugin, but I still need the answer to
my question:

How does IDEA decide that the status of VCS is unknown?

If you can tell me this, I can look at the VCS plugin source & figure
it out.

This is on 701 & 706 by the way.


Thanks,

Neil

IDEA uses Local VCS to compute file status. If local vcs caches was deleted
or was created in the new location statuses of all files will be unknown for
IDEA.

To mark project as "up-to-date" use VCS->Mark project as current. All file
statuses will be "not changed"

*blows cobwebs off of post*

I know this is a 10 year old thread, but I'm running into the same issue. I've recently added and mapped my project to my TFS workspace, and now the status of all my files are brown ("File exists locally, but is not in the repository, and is not scheduled for adding", which isn't true in my case, they are in the repository.).

That said, in the latest IDEA build (123.169), I can't seem to find the "Mark project as current" option anywhere, which I was hoping would resolve the issue. I'm assuming this option was removed from IDEA? If so, what's the other solution?

Nicholas, the fastest workaround would be to checkout the project from scratch. (via IntelliJ or Visual Studio)
