JetBrains Rider 2021.1 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. Saving files can be also triggered by third-party plugins.
Most of the events that trigger auto-save are predefined and cannot be configured, but you can be sure that changes will not be lost and you can find all of them in local history.

Configure autosave behavior

  1. Press Ctrl+Alt+S to open IDE settings and select 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. Press Ctrl+Alt+S to open IDE settings and select Editor | General | Editor Tabs.

  2. Select the Mark modified (*) checkbox.
