   This lets you choose one path out of a 'status' like selection.
   After choosing the path, it presents the diff between the index
   and the working tree file and asks you if you want to stage
-  the change of each hunk.  You can say:
+  the change of each hunk.  You can select one of the following
+  options and type return:
 
        y - stage this hunk
        n - do not stage this hunk
 +
 After deciding the fate for all hunks, if there is any hunk
 that was chosen, the index is updated with the selected hunks.

+You can omit having to type return here, by setting the configuration
+variable `interactive.singlekey` to `true`.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
