local history question

in the local history entries, there is an entry like "1 hour ago, external change" somewhere in the middle of a long list. i want to revert to a state *before* it - do i have to revert any entry on top of it first, or will idea revert everything to the state before that change happened?
is using the right side diff viewer the only way to cherrypick?

also, i think the popup menu entry text could be more clear. right now it's just "revert". but what, or to what? revert *this* change? revert everything back *until* this change? revert everything back into a state *before* this change occured? if i could select a line between 2 entries, it would be totally clear.

Yes, 'revert' button will revert all the changes up until the selected one.
