File status color highlight behaves differently in different projects

Rider removes modified file status highlight (blue) after saving a file in *some* projects. Here is gif example. In the first project highlight disappears after saving, in the second one it does not disappear.

Both are Unity projects, both are use git as version control.

What do I need to do in order for highlight to *remain* after saving the file like in second project from gif?



Could you please clarify what git executable are you using in Preferences | Version Control | Git? Also, what mappings do you have in File | Settings | Version Control | Directory Mappings? Do you have symlinks in the projects? Could you please reproduce the issue, collect the full log bundle using the following instructions and send it to us with a new issue on our tracker? Thank you in advance!


I had this issue recently. It was due to file ownership, which started after I had bought a new computer and moved all my code from the old machine to the new. I changed the ownership of the files on the new computer and the problem disappeared.
