I configured Pycharm to use Mercurial as VCS (following the instructions of the help files). When I try to add files to the repository (which is in a different directory than the project) I can only add directories from my project to VCS (context menu -> Mercurial -> Add to VCS). When I try it with individual files, the 'add to VCS' option is grayed out.
Also, the added directories do not show up when I inspect the repository directories.
I use Mercurial 3.2.4 under Mac OS X 10.8.5 and PyCharm 4.0.1. Any ideas what I did wrong?
