Changed files pane in Log tab of Version Control tool not showing

Answered

As the title says, the changed files pane in Log tab of Version Control tool is not showing (https://www.jetbrains.com/help/idea/2016.2/log-tab.html#changedFiles). I tried updating to the newest version (2016.2.2) with no luck. I'm not sure how or when the pane disappeared but it must have been in the last few of days.

How do I get the pane to display?

AFAIK there is no way to disable the Changed files pane in the Log tab, however it can be resized to 1-pixel line.

Maybe this is what accidentally happened?

I highlighted the line, please try to drag it to the left.

And I believe you did in-place upgrade to 2016.2.2 so it did not reset your settings.

That just resizes the version control tool window. I tried in Floating Mode too but that didn't work either

Floating mode does not resize panel inside tabs.

Please try the folloiwng:

  1. Close IDEA
  2. Delete the %configfilder%/options/options.xml
  3. Restart IDEA

Config directory location depends on the OS and version.

E.g on Mac the path to the folder is /Users/%Username/Library/Preferences/IntellijIDEA2016.2/

Thanks, mine was at 1 pixel width.  After following the first answer, i was able to resolve my problem.  Here is the relevant diff in the options.xml:

$ diff options.xml options.xml.bak
< <property name="vcs.log.changes.splitter.proportion" value="0.49840257" />
---
> <property name="vcs.log.changes.splitter.proportion" value="1.0" />

The width of the log pane was the issue in my case as well.
Instead of completely removing the config.xml, I just removed all 'vcs.log.*' entries and restarted.

While removing all 'vcs.log.*'  from config,xml worked-- the issue for me at least was that the Details pane overlapping over the toolbar, simply dragging it down solved the issue , dragging it up hid the toolbar completely again

Hi, I'm experiencing this same problem with 2019.1 EAP

On MacOS when I look in the folder:

~/Library/Preferences/PhpStorm2019.1/options

I don't see any of the above-mentioned files.

Which file should I delete to do a reset?

The options have been moved, AFAICS. Check

~/Library/Preferences/PhpStorm2019.1/options/other.xml
<property name="vcs.log.changes.splitter.proportion" value="" />
<property name="vcs.log.details.splitter.proportion" value="" />
