(External) File Diff the active Tab with another right-clicked Tab

Post by syntech »

I'd like to have a feature PSPad has included. There I can have a tab active and right-click on any other tab (which does NOT make this tab active) and get a context menu where I can select something like "Text compare with this tab" (or so). Then a diff program is called with the file names of the file from the active tab and the file of the tab which I right-clicked.

And since I use an external diff program I would also need the option to add an argument besides the one provided. In PSPad I had this arguments defined for the compare program: "%File1%" "%File2%" /changes

But here I can't seem to add the /changes argument, it's just not working.

I very often have to diff files and this would definitely speed things up. Would be a blast if you could integrate that!

PS: I think this could also be a nice addition to your internal diff feature.
