Can I Diff Two Files Outside Version Control?
You can diff (compare) two files even if they are not under versioning control.
- Select the two files in the Projects, Files or Favorites view.
- Invoke the context menu and choose Tools | Diff to compare the two files. Note that this submenu appears only if you select two files.
- A diff window is opened highlighting all the differences.
