Add CVS/SVN icons to files under VCS control

I am currently reviewing PHPStorm, and so far I am very impressed with the IDE. However, I miss the more clear indication about changes to files in the file viewer. Before trying out PHPStorm, I was using CVSTortoise and using windows explorer to identify changed files - and I really like the fact that changed files have clear icons to indicate what files are changed.

In PHPStorm all I get is a slight blue color of the filename. And I find it harder to quickly see what files are changed. Is it possible to either change the styling of changed files, or even better, to overlay them with an iconset - like what I am used to from CVSTortoise and Windows Explorer?

Hi Sune,

Try File | Settings | Editor | Colors & Fonts | File Status to adjust colors

Regarding icons -- I remember a ticket for that on Issue Tracker: http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issues/IDEA

Thanks, don't know how I missed those colorsettings. It helps, but I still think the indication is not clear enough. I found a couple of tickes about the idea with icons, so now I can only hope that my activity in those ideas will make them into features in a future version of PHPStornm :)

Since the functionality is not there, I cant say I got the answer I was looking for, but at least I know how things are :)
