What does main menu choice File | Synchronize do?

Answered

It this question and answer the same as my question?

https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/205808439-What-does-Synchronize-actually-do-and-why-there-isn-t-an-option-to-run-hg-update-

I searched in the Help and up came 30 choices none of which included the word synchronize in the title.  So I started digging.  The "General" choice shows

Synchronize Ctrl+Alt+Y  Detect all changed files and reload them from disk.

which is "in line" with the answer to the "linked question" I show above.

So my guess is that it is "file related" (it's in the File menu) so ... makes sense.

Please confirm.

Thank you

Hello,

Yes, "Synchronize" checks files for external changes and loads if any. It's not related to VCS.
