Can I Diff Two Files Outside Version Control?

You can diff (compare) two files even if they are not under versioning control.

  1. Select the two files in the Projects, Files or Favorites view.
  2. Invoke the context menu and choose Tools | Diff to compare the two files. Note that this submenu appears only if you select two files.
  3. A diff window is opened highlighting all the differences.
