firstname.lastname@example.org Posted January 30, 2014 Report Share Posted January 30, 2014 I am following this article: http://www.semanticmerge.com/sm-guides/main.shtml#Launchoptionsconfigurationfile I want to be able to launch an external text diff/merge tool for certain cases that Semantic Merge can't handle smart. I think I saw in one of the change logs that an external text tool can be launched by holding the shift key? When pressing the text diff button? It didn't seem to work. I don't want to override the text diff tool in general, just for particular cases where I know other tools work better. Example: Whenever I edit a merge for an XML file, it tells me it can't parse the file and offers the option to use "Text Diff", but this button still launches the internal diff (Xmerge?). In this case, I would like to use TortoiseMerge.exe. My setup is: C:\Users\Andreas\AppData\Local\semanticmerge\semanticmergetool.conf # external diff tool -> tortoisemerge-edt="C:/Program Files/TortoiseSVN/bin/TortoiseMerge.exe" "#sourcefile" "#destinationfile"# external mergetool -> kdiff3 with symbolic info-emt="C:/Program Files/TortoiseSVN/bin/TortoiseMerge.exe" "#basefile" "#sourcefile" "#destinationfile" However, it still launches the internal diff/merge tool when clicking the Text Diff button in the "can't parse" dialog.
