How to set text merge as default merge tool instead of semantic merge?

Recommended Posts

Hello,  I have a question again :)

After, semantic merge is default merge tool for .cs files.
However, sometimes semantic merge worked very weired with some auto generated cs files.
(Those .cs files were conflcted in semantic merge tool, but not conflicted in legacy text merge tool)

So, I like to use old legacy text merge as default merge tool, but I can't find any option about that.
Currently,  I always run text merge after semantic merge runs first, and it was very cumbersome.

I hope there is a good way to solve this problem.

Thanks for reading my question.

If you configure "mergetool" to be run for a specific file type (eg: .cs), it will be run (and not the semantic merge tool). Currently, the semantic merge tool is the default for generic text files.
