JetBrains Rider 2020.3 Help

Save and Revert Changes

JetBrains Rider automatically saves changes that you make in your files. Saving is triggered by various events, such as compiling, running, debugging, performing version control operations, closing a file or a project, or quitting the IDE. Most of the actual events are predefined and cannot be configured, but you can be sure that changes will not be lost as you work.

Configure autosave behavior

  1. In the Settings/Preferences dialog Ctrl+Alt+S, go to Appearance and Behavior | System Settings.

  2. Under Autosave, configure the following options:

    • Save files when switching to a different application

    • Save files is the IDE is idle for N seconds

If you use version control integration, names of all modified files will be marked with a dedicated color on the file tab. But you can also mark unsaved files with an asterisk (*) on the file tab.

Mark files with unsaved changes

  1. In the Settings/Preferences dialog Ctrl+Alt+S, go to Editor | General | Editor Tabs.

  2. Select the Mark modified tabs with asterisk checkbox.

Revert changes

  • For the most recent changes, press Ctrl+Z or choose Edit | Undo from the menu.

  • For a more detailed view of past changes, use Local History.

  • For the most robust tracking of all changes,use a version control system.
