If I have WebStorm open with my project, go to PowerShell to do a git branch switch, but receive an error about my changes need to be committed before proceeding, when I come back to WebStorm, it gives me an error message, and I lose the majority of my settings. When I say majority, I'm talking things like what beautifiers I had turned on, items I added to the Content Root, etc. I do not lose my editor settings like spaces instead of tabs, etc. I wanted to start a thread to see if there was an issue already like this out there... if not, I will try and add the error message that WebStorm throws, but I'm not sure it'll be very helpful.
Just to reiterate, this happens when git throws an error in PowerShell. On a normal branch switch without the git error message, everything is fine, and I don't lose my settings.
