Switch sides in diff viewer

Ulrich Eckhardt (23612223) | asked Sep 16 '11, 7:27 a.m.

I'd like to have the old version on the left side and the new version on the right side, is there some place where I can configure that? I haven't found a work item requesting this either, but I don't think it is unusual, so I guess there must be a way somewhere...

Thank you!

Just wondering, am I the only one that finds the order for the two panes odd?

If not, I'd go and make myself familiar with filing feature requests...

Nope you are not the only one. We have people on our team who also would like to know the answer to this question.

 Compare view should have an option to swap before and after panes. (71398)

This is open as an enhancement. Work on new features and enhancements is driven through the RFE process (see FAQ. If you would like this new feature to be considered, please open an RFE using the link below:

The submission of an RFE then triggers a review of the request by the RFE review board to determine how the request fits into our planning backlog.

This is also just how Eclipse defaults its compare editor. So even if a preference were provided, it may not alter all comparisons to reflect your preference of left/right order. It would only affect RTC SCM comparisons.
