Description physcopanda 2016-01-05 17:07:50 UTC
Using the "Files" window,
On clicking on a file with right mouse button and selecting the following context menu item:
git / ignore / ignore

The path is added correctly to .gitignore however the line endings of the gitignore file are modified to my system default. This is annoying when in a sharing files through a repo between Mac and Windows. Please can you update to leave as-is!

Do you use config.autocrlf=true in your git repo? With this setting it should work fine and .gitignore itself should not be marked as modified. Can you please check?
