File Status Highlights

In WebStorm, each file has its own status marked with a specific color. A file status shows how the actual file's content corresponds to the one marked as 'current'.

In the editor, each line in a file is checked for its correspondence with the 'current' state and is marked with a specific color in the left gutter area.

You can customize the default colors:

  • For files in the Settings/Preferences dialog (Ctrl+Alt+S) under Version Control | File Status Colors
  • For lines in the editor in the Settings/Preferences dialog (Ctrl+Alt+S) under Editor | Color Scheme | VCS.
