Version Control / Local Changes does not update automatically

Answered

Hi,

Running IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3.2 (Ultimate Edition), my Local Changes in the Version Control window do not update automatically when I edit files.  But it does update automatically when I use Community Edition.

In UE, I have to manually invoke Refresh VCS Changes to get Local Changes to show all the modified files.  Otherwise the list is incomplete and diff only shows the diffs in the files that show after the last time I manually refreshed, and commit only commits the stale list of files - this is the biggest issue.

Also, I notice that the colour flagging of changed lines in the left margin does not appear until I have done the manual refresh.

The edits have been saved to disk.

This happens on multiple projects.

I have a very simple project - just a few files.  Using git / github.

This is a new install so I don't know if the issue is new in this version.

On a MacBook Pro running macOS 10.12.6

Thanks for any help...

Are you saying it does work in Community Edition of the same version?

Is the Synchronize files on frame or editor activation (Preferences | Appearance & Behavior | System Settings) option enabled in Ultimate?

Are there any custom plugins installed on Ultimate, which are not present in Community?

Yes, it does work in Community Edition.  Not exactly the same version - details below.

Yes, "Synchronize files on frame or editor tab activation" is enabled in Ultimate (and in Community Edition).

Could not reproduce.

Please submit an issue to https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issues/IDEA with logs attached.

OK, I wish I could not reproduce the issue!

Can you please tell me where/how I can get the required logs and what actions I should do.

I guess the idea is to do an edit and check that my local changes has not updated, then manually update - noting the time so the actions can be correlated with the log.

Thanks.

I figured out how to get the log so no need to answer above questions.

Thanks,  Dave.
