Using Change Markers to View and Navigate Through Changes in the Editor

As you modify a file that is under version control, all changes are highlighted in the editor with the change markers that appear in the left gutter next to the modified lines, and show changes introduced since the most recent synchronization with the repository. On committing a file to the repository, the change markers disappear.
