Is it possible to configure Subversive to display an indicator in the code editor when you have made a change compared to the last (base/local) svn revision of the file?`
Intellij does this elegantly by putting a small icon in the right or left bare in the code editor. This makes it very easy to see what changes you are committing (instead of using the "compare to" feature every time..).

Ah, thanks Alexander. I know "Quick Diff" because this also displays annotations, but was not aware
The colours are quite light and not easily visible. Maybe they should be configured.
In addition, I found the "Preferences" entry for "Quick Diff" (which can easily accessed using the
same right-click and selecting "Preferences..." below):
General->Editors->Text Editors->Quick Diff
Here John can configure all its needs:
[x] Show in overview ruler (i.e scroll bar on the right side)
colors for add, delete, change (could be more intensive for me)
And most notably: Reference source:
Default is "Version on Disk", but Johns wants "SVN Working Copy Base".
For "Version on Disk" every Save clears the indicators, while "SVN Working Copy Base" gets cleared
only on commit/revert.
Anyway, thanks for your hint, which let me learn something new :-)
