In the IDE settings, under Colors & Fonts, on the General tab, there are
two color settings for Added Lines and Modified Lines. They seem to only
allow setting the background color. Note I am not talking about the
settings for the Difference View tab, these are the ones on the General
What do these affect? I don't seem to get any effects out of changing
What I want is some sort of dynamic marker so that I can see at a glance
what lines have been added and modified since the last file load or save.
It would also be nice to see something to show lines were deleted, like a
red line drawn between the remaining lines. Essentially a continuous diff
in the editor between the version on disk and the version in memory
(although with all the auto-saving going on this becomes sketchy). Is this
functionality currently in IDEA? If so, how do I make it work?
