I want to know the steps to create a local branch in intellij with git as my version control system. I have multiple remote source code repository and I want to create a local branch to work on my code changes. I tried the following steps
1. Create a local branch from the git pop up menu by following this link.
2. Make code changes
3. Compare it with master branch
When I compare the local code changes with master, the pop shows that the branch master is fully merged with the local branch. I do not want the master branch to be merged with the local branch. I want to control this and do it manually whenever I am ready to push the changes. How do I do that?
