Techy question - how to see differences in files in IntelliJ 5.0.1

I've just upgraded to 5.0.1 and I seem to have lost the ability to track differences in files as I'm going. Used to be that changes in the files were highlighted by a colour in the left margin, and a grey 'out'dent in the right bar, but differences in the file I'm working on don't seem to be tracked at all.

If I go into cvs file view, it correctly identifies the files I've changed and shows the differences, but not in the editor.

Is this a setup issue, has anyone else experienced this? It's adversely affecting my work speed.

Apologies if this is the wrong place for this question - please feel free to point me in the right direction.

answering myself here (have had to set up new account to do so as it won't let me back in on the previous one!)

Change markers are supposed to show on the gutter - I don't appear to have a gutter, there is no grey strip down the left hand side of my editor screen. Any ideas where it's gone and how to get it back???

Be sure you have version control selected for the project
int Settings->Version Control.

Yes, I have version control switched on. I am able to view history for the files I am working on, and can compare differences, it's just that I don't get the change by change tracking that I had previously (where you get a change marker in the left hand gutter).

I have the same problem after I upgraded to 5.02. Does anybody know how to solve it?
