Commit Changes dialog
Use this dialog to commit (check in) local changes to the repository and, optionally, to create a patch file.
The options available in this dialog depend on the version control system you are using.
Modified files pane
This section lists all files that have been modified since the last commit. Deselect the check-boxes next to the files that you want to exclude from the current commit.
Modified files pane toolbar
Tooltip and Shortcut
Open the Differences dialog that highlights the differences between your local working copy of the selected file and its repository version.
Revert all changes made to the local working copy of the selected files.
Click this button to reload the Changed files tree view so it is up-to-date.

Click these buttons to expand or collapse all nodes in the directory tree. These buttons are not available in flat view.
From this list, select the changelist that contains the modified files to be checked in or included in the patch. The active changelist is selected by default.
The summary under the modified files pane shows statistics on the currently selected changelist, such as the number of modified, new, deleted and unversioned files. This area also shows how many files of each type are shown, and how many of them will be committed.
Commit Message pane
In this area, enter a comment to the current commit. You cannot commit your changes until you enter some description in the Commit Message field.
This comment will also be used as the name of the patch file, if you decide to create a patch.
You can click Commit Message history Ctrl+M to choose from the list of recent commit messages.
The controls in this section are located in the top-right part of the dialog, and contain the options that are specific for Git.
Use this list to select the author of the changes that you are going to commit. This may be useful when you are committing changes made by another person.
Select this checkbox to replace the previous commit with the current changes (see Git Basics: Undoing Things for details).
select if you want to sign off your commit to certify that the changes you are about to check in have been made by you, or that you take the responsibility for the code you're committing.
When this option is enabled, the following line is automatically added at the end of the commit message: Signed off by: <username>
Before Commit section
Use the controls in this area to define which additional actions you want DataSpell to perform before committing the selected files.

From this list, select the server access configuration or a server group to use for uploading the committed files to a local or remote host, a mounted disk, or a directory.
The list is only available if the FTP/SFTP/WebDAV Connectivity plugin is enabled.

Diff pane toolbar
Tooltip and Shortcut
Previous Difference / Next Difference Shift+F7 F7
Jump to the next or previous difference.
When the last or the first difference is reached, DataSpell suggests clicking the arrow buttons or pressing F7/Shift+F7 once more and comparing other files modified locally. This behavior depends on the Go to the next file after reaching last change option in the Differences Viewer settings.
Jump to Source
Open the selected file in the editor. The caret is placed in the same position as in the Differences Viewer.
Compare Previous/Next File
Click these buttons to compare the local copy of the previous/next file with its update from the server.
Select a viewer mode: side-by-side or unified. The side-by-side mode has two panels, the unified mode has one panel.
You can edit code and perform the Accept, Append, Revert actions in both viewers.
You can change text only in the right-hand part of the side-by-side viewer, or in the lower line in the unified viewer.
You can edit only local versions of your files. You cannot edit files that have read-only status.
Define how the differences viewer should treat whitespaces.
Select the way differences granularity is highlighted.
The available options are:
Collapse unchanged fragments
Collapse all the unchanged fragments in both files. The amount of non-collapsible unchanged lines is configurable in the Diff & Merge settings page. To open the Diff & Merge page, open settings by pressing Ctrl+Alt+S and navigate to .
Scroll both differences panes simultaneously. If this button is released, each pane can be scrolled independently.
Enable editing of the local copy of the selected file, which is disabled by default. When editing is enabled, you can make last-minute changes to the modified file before committing it.
Open a list of available options. Select or clear these options to show or hide line numbers, indentation guides, white spaces, and soft wraps.
Open a browser and show the corresponding help page.
Note that the options listed above are available for text files only. DataSpell cannot compare binary files, so most commands will be unavailable for them.
Submit / Commit button
Click this button to commit the selected files, or hover your mouse over this button to display one of the following available commit options:
Commit and Push: select this option to push the changes to the remote repository immediately after the commit. This option is available if you are using Git or Mercurial as a version control system.
Create MQ Patch: select this option to create an MQ patch based on your changes. This option is only available if you are using Mercurial as a version control system.
Create Patch: select this option if you want DataSpell to generate a patch based on the changes you are about to commit. In the Create Patch dialog that opens, type the name of the patch file and specify whether you need a reverse patch.
Remote Run: select this option to run your personal build. This option is only available when you are logged in to TeamCity. Refer to TeamCity plugin documentation for details.
