Code changes only hitting project dirs on commit?

I am new to git.. I think I did something weird.. now I only see file changes I make in IDEA in my project dirs when I do a commit... it looks like it's sticking them somewhere "weird"... this was not the case until today. I'm on 107.105

What magical thing have I done that's now making my development cycle very painful?

Hello chowda,

IntelliJ IDEA always saves all the changes you make to disk automatically,
on focus lost, running external tools and in many other cases. This doesn't
depend on the VCS that you use.

Are there any symlinks in the project path?

I've been so used to IDEA saving on frame deactivation for the last 10 years I forgot it was an option... sure enough the box was unchecked! I think someone in the office was messing with me. Thanks for the hint.
