"Synchronize" in IDEA 6.0.4

Hi,

I have a "problem" with IDEA (latest version) not synchronizing my local file system. Here's an example of when this behaviour appears:

- I create two new classes in IDEA and don't add them to CVS, yet

- I go to the command line and run "cvs add" and "cvs commit" for those two classes

- in IDEA, those classes are still red

- I run "synchronize" on the folder that holds these classes ---> nothing happens (they are still red)

- I run "synchronize" on the whole project ---> nothing happens (the two classes are still red)

finally: I restart IDEA ---> the two classes aren't red anymore, everything looks as it should.


I somehow remember, that the synchronization of the local file system worked better in IDEA5.....?

Hello ben,

Note that file status synchronization is a different thing from local file
system synchronization. You'll need to open the Changes view and click the
Refresh button there.
