I have been using TC exclusively since 1996. I LOVE this program and there's no way I could do what I need to do daily without it. Recently a very strong need has come up that is not currently addressed in TC. I have to be able to run an external DIFF application on files that are not equal from the Directory Synch window so I can merge and edit the files (using CompareIT!) from that view. Currently I have to print the window results, close the Synch pane, and one by one, find, re-diff, edit, save then re-synch the Dirs. On a file tree with some 1,500 files and 300+ directories, this is arduous. PLEASE give me the ability to tell TC to run an external Diff when right-clicking in the File Synch menu!

It's already on my wish list. The reason why it's not implemented yet is because it's quite complex to add, just because the external compare tools can modify the files!

well, any kind of merge would be better than none. Even if it would not be available in archives or would not be compatible with some external diff/merge tools. I'm looking forward to see when this feature moves from your wish list to to-do list Wink

Just to your information:

There is already a workaround. Using this AutoHotkey script allows to run from internal filecompare with F2 an external filecompare Application (example for Beyond compare and winmerge included).

You can add an item in Start menu.
The commander of it is "...\Program Files\Beyond Compare\BCompare.exe"
The parameter of it is "%p %t"
Just try it.

An option to create an unified diff would be awesome - especially if you could choose which files you want to include and which not.

Is it possible to use Beyond Compare also to compare folders?
(TC-->Commands-->Synchronize dirs)

Beyond Compare can already be used for comparing folders from TC
but not inside of Synchronize dirs.

Yes I know.

It would be nice if you can select
- a folder in the left panel
- a folder in the right panel

and switching to Beyond Compare clicking "Sychronize dirs"

But this can be accomplished using a button for Beyond compare with the selected dirs as parameters. What would be the benefit having this in the Synchronize dirs ?

Oh, yes.
I haven't tried that.
It works with the TC command: "compare by content" Smile
Thanks.
