Marker Bar - "Lines changed" warnings - how to get rid of

Hi,
I have yellow warning indicators in the marker bar that apparently alter me to changed lines. I'm not sure what the intention of this is given CVS diff and local history diff. Is there any way to turn these off? I can't find anything about these in the errors settings but they're pretty cluttering. I don't want to turn off local history if it's not necessary but once you get enough of these in the marker bar the whole bar becomes pretty useless as it's full of yellow.
Thanks in advance for any info,
Scott

Are they on the left or the right?

They're on the right - with all the other markers for warnings/errors/TODOs.

The change indicators automatically go away when you sync that code with CVS. The change indicators should only be showing on the left side of the screen. Stuff on the right is for errors, warnings, etc. I'm not sure how you got them on the same side. In any event, the change indicators are very nice. You can quick navigate to changed code and if you hold the most over it, you can revert the changed code. I don't know of any way to get rid of these indicators. All I can suggest is to sync with CVS more frequently. :)

As far as I know:
On the left side it shows CVS/Subversion related changes.
On the right side, local history is shown.

Yes, exactly - I'm not talking about the modification indicators on the left - ie. those that you can click on and do diffs/rollbacks/etc. I'm talking about the yellow stripes on the right that usually mean warnings but apparently also indicate source changes. So, if I'm getting this right, the only way to get rid of them is to turn off local history - drag. Guess, to my mind anyway, the yellow stripes on the right are overkill - I can easily look at local history explicitly when I want. With significant code modification it doesn't take too long before there's so much yellow on the right you can't detect a meaningful warning from a source change. Guess I was hoping that maybe this was a bit more configurable and I was just missing it.

BTW, anyone know if there's any way to integrate local history with CVS? For me, local history kept for some number of days is pretty much irrelevant. What I'd like is local history kept until CVS commit/unedit time - once I commit, local history is cleaned out. That way, after CVS edit, I have any number of save points I can use to rollback to without having to go all the way back. Once commit or unedit takes place, local history is clear.

Well, thanks for the info - hate to throw the baby out with the bath water but I guess I've got no choice - if the whole right side is going to be yellow after significant code modification, it might as well be empty - too much there to be meaningful if 99% of it is just a foolish "lines changed" message - I don't even get why that's considered a warning.

If you are talking about narrow change marks in the right gutter, they are
configured in the Settings|Colors&Fonts|General|Modified lines.
But they should not cover all space with yellow, as you've described, could
you please post snapshot here ?

Awesome - thank you! They actually weren't yellow lines - they were smaller indicators as you suggest - but, there's some serious refactoring going on here and there was so much yellow that the little modified marks couldn't be seen - if I moused over the various yellow lines I'd see all the "lines modified" messages but never was able to correlate them with anything other than a yellow line. This will be MUCH better once I've gotten through figuring out what all of those various inspections are and turning them off. Still not clear on what the heck the difference between Editor Highlighting Settings and inspections are or how to turn them all off. What I want is to turn the things off globally and then manually run an inspection on a file when I want. So, set up a profile of all the inspections I care about but DON'T inspect the code in the background - use those settings when I manually request an inspection. Cool feature but the background stuff is absolutely KILLING me in performance - to the point where I'm just going to have to figure out how to disable the whole feature. I know about the little icon at the bottom (dude with stache) - but as far as I can tell, he affects a single file - that's unacceptable - I can't be configuring him for a several thousand file project on a per-file basis. Can IDEA do this? That is, let me set up a profile of inspections I care about - NO BACKGROUND PROCESSING!!! - and let me manually request a code inspection - like, maybe before CVS commit (which I believe is an option for commit as it is)? If so, that would be perfect for me because honestly, some days I feel like I spend more time waiting for IDEA to catch up with me than anything else.

Thanks again for the reply,
Scott
