I made a commit and created a patch out of that. Then I reset my master before that commit.
Now, in the drop down box in: Actions -> Apply Patch... , I select the patch file just created, but the item "import as full commit" is greyed out. I cannot see the reason why it is disabled?
This would indicate to me that the patch either isn't made from a commit or there's something wrong with the patch file itself. In Mercurial we expect to see "# HG changeset patch" at the start of the file and in Git we expect to see "From: " and "Subject: " as is usually in a patch file made from a commit (more docs on Git patches here: http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-format-patch.html). It can only be a full commit if it was a patch created from a commit, hence the reliance on what should be in the patch file.
You may have accidentally created the patch from uncommitted changes meaning there was no author and thus not allowing you to import it as a full commit. If you check the patch file contents itself to see if they match the format as was briefly described in the above paragraph then we can see from there what's going wrong in this case.
Hope that helps
I am using GIT by the way :-)
I created the patch from a commit that I haven't pushed yet.
I checked the patch file and it starts with:
