IDEA broke me heart for not showing files committed in a commit any more!


Long story short:

I've been happy with IDEA IntelliJ, until recently suddenly I found it no longer showing me what files committed in a commit side by side, I know I did behave badly to it, but the price is way too expensive, now I have to use something like Gitg to review my past commits, it's very frustrating : (

Very missing old days, please help!

Looks like the Details area is resized to occupy the entire right pane.

Just put the cursor at the top of the Details area, and drag it down.

If for some reasons you can't drag the border, another way is to delete/edit the options.xml, similar to this thread


Thank you Dmitriy! that's exactly the case.
