Description ats37 2002-08-27 14:31:01 UTC
When a file changes which is open in an editor window, this 
is detected and the option is given to reload the new 
version of the file.  It would be nice if the same happened 
when a diff window is open that used the file i.e. prompt 
to reload and redo the diff.

Currently, if I diff a couple of files, open one of them in 
the editor and make some changes (and save), then I have to 
close the diff window and select to diff the files again in 
order to see the effects of my changes.  It would 
streamline things greatly if all I had to do was switch 
back to the diff tab and hit an "OK" button.

This is a quite handy enhancement, thanks for it.
I hope I'll have a time to do it into 4.0, but I can not promise it

Yes this is very handy. Changing TM to 4.2.

It seems that this enhancement has been already implemented.
Diff Window refreshes automatically.
