In IntelliJ, are there any visuel cues that you have properly saved your file?

In Workspaces, whenever the file you are editing is in a state that hasn't been saved, there is the little orange ball next to the file name to remind you that you will need to save the current file.

Is there anything of the sort on IntelliJ? I have built up this habit of wanting to save often, and so I have to go all the way up to the command bar and select File > Save All just to save the files, and there is nothing that I see changes that lets me know it saved.

Also, is there a place in particular that I can look and see the saving process or that it has been saved? Something that I may be missing?

There is now visual clue, but it auto-saves every time you run (ctrl+r) or you can just use (cmd+s) save all files? You can also turn on auto-save tho! (go to prefs and search for "save automatically") (Shortcut's used is for Mac, don't know if they are the same for Windows?)
