Version control local changes tab missing in 2020.1

Answered

I recently formatted my computer and installed a fresh Ubuntu 20.04, then used snapcraft to install CLion 2020.1. I am unable to find the local changes tab in the Git view. I've searched everywhere in the Git tab, and the View -> Tool Windows. The Search Everywhere feature has a "Local Changes" but it's really just the commit window. Has the original Local Changes been removed from the Git tab?

 

Also, I've validated that CLion is pointing to the git application (/usr/bin/git), and tests successfully.

Thank GOD we can change to the old flow. Imo this should really be reverted back to the old style version control tab.

Honestly, in the end I grew to like this new tab. I was skeptical at first but gave it a try. It fits nicely in my layout right below the project tab on left side of my IDE. I can see my changes all the time, review them and commit faster. Depends on your layout that you are used to of course.

Martin Cernik how did you get the changed files view in the new non-modal interface? Because the absence of it was what made me revert to the old layout.

If it's not clear already, I will add my two cents. The removal of that tab and the drastic change to the established critical workflow was a horrible decision.

Dearest friends,

I call upon all of us, myself included, to ping back to this issue every 2 weeks until it is resolved.
Not one person I've encountered since may is a fan of this change.

Some say this change is the worst thing to happen in 2020, and that is saying something!

Worst change to the product line ever, having all products for long time now. Simply hate it when i spend 2 hours thinking i'm either blind or stupid and then find out you changed the best version control to something blurry as all the competitors. Simply hate it. please revert.

What on earth have you done JetBrains? This is just plain awful. I've been using Idea for 13 years and now I can barely work my way around without pulling out my hair. For the first time in my career I am seriously considering changing my IDE.
