Description

Track changed blocks in text files separately

Select this option if you want to be able to put changes to one file into separate changelists to commit them separately (see Commit part of a file for details)

Enable changelist conflict tracking

Select this option to protect files in inactive changelists and choose one of the options below.

Show conflict resolving dialog

If this checkbox is selected, WebStorm displays the Resolve Changelist Conflict dialog box on an attempt to modify a file.

Select how you want to resolve conflicts before you proceed with the changes:

  • Shelve changes.

  • Move file to the active changelist.

  • Switch changelists to make the current changelist active.

  • Ignore conflict. In this case, the file in question will be added to the list of files with ignored conflicts.

Highlight files with conflicts

If this checkbox is selected, WebStorm shows a yellow stripe on top of a file from an inactive changelist, when such file has been modified.

It lets you choose one of the possible ways to resolve conflicts:

  • Move file to the active changelist.

  • Switch changelists.

  • Ignore conflict.

The names of the files belonging to inactive changelists are shown in red font in the editor tabs and in the Project view.

Highlight files from non-active changelists

If this checkbox is selected, names of the files belonging to inactive changelists are shown in light-blue font in the editor tabs and in the Project view.

Files with ignored conflicts

This area shows the list of files for which the Ignore option has been selected in the Resolve Changelist Conflict dialog box or in the editor stripe.

Clear

Click this button to remove all files from the list of files with ignored conflicts.
