Description hifi 2014-10-29 16:03:48 UTC
Currently when de-selecting all files in a diff window the UI will tell you to click on the output window to get the overall diff. When you select many files instead of just one with Ctrl down, you get the same suggestion and when you click it it will do just that, show the full diff.

It would be nice if the output window could instead give you the option to get a full diff of the selected files: "Select a file or click to view the overall diff of selected files.".

Yeah, makes sense. I wanted to implement it right away but it required an API change so i left it open for a request. And you did request it :-).

Thank you for taking such an interest to make my workflow better. I would have never thought someone actually acted on my requests and this quickly. Hopefully there are more people that appreciate these small changes as well.
