Well I am having trouble with the Git support in 14.1 latest release Windows x64.
To start with , when I try to create a repository, VCS- import into version control->create GIT repository, well, nothing happens and by nothing I mean none of the files in the folder where I have created a repository change color. Now since I am new to Git, maybe this just means a repository was created but nothing has been added, so no color change on files of course.
So I went to add a directory in the projects view which seemed the logical pace to do that. So Projects View right click over folder to be added then git->commit_directory and all that happens is it presents a popup that says "nothing changed".
OK so maybe the files WERE brought under git on my first step, but if so, there is no visual indication that that's happened- i.e. no color change on the file name or other indicator to show they were under git.
OK so maybe if I change a file, git will notice it's out of sync and show some signs of life. S\o when I adda comment to a file, the tab with that file anme does turn blue, yay! but when I go to look at the difference using git->compare_with... the File Revision popup that appears in response says only "nothnig to show" .
That actually makes sense since I never recall having been asked for a commit message anywhere so if I were going to guess I would say the file has never been committed to git .
So, in short, no combination of ordered events involving add or commit ever results in anything like git acting like it knows it has a file under revision, is keeping revisions, or even knows my fiels exist, with the exception of the name of the file turning blue if I change the text. But then it just stays blue and never changes from there no matter what I do.
Sorry to say, because IJ totally rocks the house in every other wya, but git integration just feels broken out of the box. I am 90% giving up, so if anyone knowns of a VC that works IJ please let me know what yo're using and how you feel about it. I would prefer git, but it looks like it ain't gonna happen, and I am nervous relying just on IJ (fine) versioning tool for long term sotrage of the project history.
Many thanks .
