Can't figure out new version control commit dialog.

Something that used to be obvious in the v5x commit dialog, is now missing completely from the v6x dialog.

In the old v5x dialog, a checkbox would allow me to toggle files that had been added to the project and I could chose to add them to the repository right there. In the v6x dialog, I can not figure out how to see these files in any which way. Either I'm to dumb or its too cryptic, take your pick.

The only way I can figure out how to do this is to scan for "red" files in my project view... Which is a good way to miss files.

The v6x changelist approach is more baffling and far less confidence inspiring. I haven't had that cozy "My files are all checked in!" feeling since the new dialog appeared in the EAP builds. I'm sure the changelist is convenient and nice once understood. But all I can do is create new changelists that don't do anything and I can't figure out what use they are or what to do with them. I wish there was an "advanced" button I could uncheck for people like me who don't understand (or need) the bells, whistles and complexity of the new approach.

Have you tried the Changes view (Version Control | Show Changes View)? It
has a nice and neat list of unversioned and locally deleted files.
