hot to turn on cvs-changed-lines at left margin

hello. i just installed idea on a new computer, and i believe i copied all the settings, but somehow on the new computer i do not get the markings on the left margin showing lines that differ from the cvs version. i can't find a switch to turn this on anywhere in the settings.
can anybody help please?

thank you

It's your project doesn't have a CVS version control assigned most probably.
Check out Settings|Version Control

What color the files appears in then? Particulary modified files are of interest.
Are they blue? (in project view, in editor tab).

i found the problem.
i copied my project from old computer 'as is', with some files already changed. Idea does not show differences for those files.
for all the modified files i copied i need to do a cvs commit, and from then on everything is ok. for unmodified files i can simply start editing and everything is fine.

there seems no way to see what's modified (other than 'compare with', but that not quite as convenient) in the files that were copied modified, but before cvs commit. a bit strange... but in the end, not a blocker as i thought.

I've seen this before. Basically, the change markers rely on IDEA's
internal Version History (or whatever it's called) and it misses changes
like this. I wonder why IDEA doesn't use "same revision in repository"
as the basis for it's change markers.

Ciao,

If you do a cvs annotate on those files, the CVS changed markers will reappear.
