Change details pane
The pane opens when you click the Change Details button on the toolbar. In this pane, examine the changes made to the selected file compared to the base revision.
The pane consists of two areas:
- The affected code as it was in the base revision.
- The affected code as it is after the change is introduced.
In each area, WebStorm numbers both changes and the lines involved in them.
To close the pane, click the Change Details button once more.
